      hey, First off i apologize if this isnt posted in right area of forum.
      Anyway i am interested in going to portugal in summer.
      I am atm nl50 zoom player, looking to move to nl100 soon if things go good.
      Is online poker allowed there (can i play on pokerstars normally) ?
      How big are the rents, i am only interested at some beach areas, doesnt matter if whole apartment or just a room with other places shared, i only need good enough internet connection :D
      I assume people speak solid english in tourist areas when i go to shop etc?
      And lastly how good is the weather there, does it rain alot?

      Thx alot for any answers!

      Yes

      depends, but if u want to go to Algarve or something along the coast you'll pay a little more (summer, high season).

      Yap, I think you will not have many problems of communication.

      And lastly how good is the weather there, does it rain alot?
      Good. are arriving good temperature. but as the worldwide climate as, I think is normal 38º one day, rain on the following day, and another 38º xD

      I advise you to post in pt.pokerstrategy.com for more accurate answer
      Enjoy Portugal and sry my english

      Rent's more expensive during the summer, but I spent a summer at a villa there two years ago shared with 4 people and it was not so bad, weather is great and views and beaches are amazing (I went to Lagos in South West) I have some photos I'll try to post (if I remember) for you. Best of luck with it all if I forget.
