Without a doubt, there is something for everyone on YouTube. From vlogs that are genuinely authentic through to those where there is clearly a lot of production work and scripting undertaken. There are so many vlogs being created that it is impossible to keep up with them all although this is possibly one of the most comprehensive lists of YouTubers sharing their journey and lives in Portugal.
Thank you to all the ‘YouTubers’ who are letting people like me, have an insight into your lives as you move or live in Portugal. Please support them by subscribing, liking and commenting on those you enjoy. Above all, be polite and considerate in all your interactions with them.
