In 2011, Terry and her husband, Clyde, set off from Texas to enjoy early retirement in Panama. It was during their time there that Terry convinced Clyde to take a trip to Europe. It proved a game-changer. Having discovered house- and pet-sitting, Terry and Clyde sold up in Panama and spent two years roaming the globe. Then, in 2018, a house-sit took them to Portugal and they knew they’d found a place they wanted to call home. After a spell living on the Silver Coast they’re now enjoying expat life in the sun-soaked Algarve region.
