Born in 1964 and raised in Lisbon, Portugal, I am first and foremost a travel addict.
I have been very fortunate to have travelled extensively since my childhood, something which has instilled in me great wonder and curiosity about faraway lands, people and their cultures. I cannot praise these experiences enough. I reconcile this passion for travel with my passion for photography, and for that, my own home country is quite inspiring. I seldom have found such magnificent coastal scenery like the wild Atlantic coast which together with the unique light we get at this latitude provides for some of the finest landscape photography and outdoor activities. If you add the fine weather, food and culture, youâre in for a treat all year round. The more I travel, the more I am grateful to return to this beautiful country and my hometown of Lisbon. An expresso and a âpastel de nataâ at the local coffee shop are usually my âwelcome backâ foodie treat. >
Holding a degree in Law by the Lisbon School of Law and after a long and fulfilling career in International Banking, Compliance and at the Securities Market Commission, I am now leading Photography and Adventure tours for Papa-LÃ©guas both in Portugal and abroad. Iâm fluent in several languages notably English, Spanish and to a lesser extent in French and Italian. I relish in meeting people from different cultures and backgrounds and sharing some of our best spots and mostly, the well kept secrets.
