It comes as no surprise for someone who grew up in a small farm in Coimbra, Portugal and made his career in international hospitality in Spain, Brazil, UK and the US.
As a dedicated hotel manager I love small personal ambiences, which show love and dedication, where one can experience a million different details all working together.
Most of my career took place at unique locations, with a great share of it in Palacio Belmonte, where I personally oversaw each guest’s stay, being more like a local friend who really knows the city well and will unbiasedly recommend the best that it has to offer.
As an engaging storyteller, I dedicate my writing and photography to the soul and sense of place of the locations I visit, the people I meet and the food I taste.
The travels I share through my blog are mostly friend generated, as I feel that the best way to get to know a city is through an insider, who can share feelings and emotions about sites, food and people as passionately as I do.
