Where We Stand: Make Your Own Story with Novomove

Moving to a new country can be the most stressful thing in your life.

It can also be the most rewarding thing you’ve ever done.

Or the most disappointing.

Your relationships can break, you might lose touch with your old friends.

Did you think hard before making the leap?

There’s something in your life that’s making you feel not the best version of yourself where you are right now, right?

You want to breeze the ocean every day, you want to ride the wave standing strong on your surfboard, you want your dog to get wasted with the sand on the beach, you want new friends that we’ll share your new hobbies with you.

All of this can happen if you’re willing to work through your old junk in the closet (donate that stuff), figure out all these confronting, ridiculous visa application rules, sell your old car, and maybe even sell your house (though that can probably wait).

But is the juice worth the squeeze?

Nobody can answer that for you. Sometimes you just have to turn off your brain and follow your intuition.

Close your eyes and imagine yourself in 10 years.

Would you like to sit in the green garden of your Portuguese house or be in the same place you are now?

Would you like to surround yourself with new friends and brave expats like you?

Would you like to start surfing, visiting retreats, participating in wicked festivals in remote places?

I’m not selling a dream here.

Because if you’re not ready to make the change and grow a pair now, nobody will do it for you.

And surprise-surprise – you’re not getting younger every year (at least in the physical aspect).

Yes, there’s going to be a lot of moving parts involved.

But don’t you enjoy learning these new moves?

I guess you do, or why the heck did you click on the site with the name Novomove?

Yes, sometimes there’s going to be times of total lack of control.

You’ll have to find new people who are total strangers and trust them with your documents, your belongings..

But you’re smart, and you’ll figure it out. Just look at other expats who did it. They’re not better than you, as far as I can see.

Very soon, there will be a day when you’ll be sitting in your new place, on your new Ikea couch, holding hands with your loved one and saluting your new life with a glass of vinho verde with your second hand (because red wine and Ikea couch rarely goes well together).

And to get there, you’ll need to tackle some boring mundane tasks like getting your NIF and NISS sorted, opening a bank account, figuring out taxes, securing your visa, finding your new place, and starting to love the Portuguese way of doing things (or otherwise, you’ll go crazy).

We might not be able to help you with everything just now.

But we have a BIG vision of becoming one stop shop for everything related to moving to a new country like Portugal and creating a community of like-minded expats.

Our customers are our friends and we don’t want to make our relationship transactional.

If we can help – we will, if not – will make sure to try to find a solution.

Making a move to a new country is a logistical problem, but it’s also a psycological one.

As someone who was there before – I can whole hartedly relate to it.

So just know – you have our full support on both ends.

So lets make the things moving, shall we?

~Yours truly, Philip Bitnik
