I have a degree in Law and I have been working as a Human Resources Manager for the past 15 years.
I’m the daughter of an Indian father and a European mother and my great-grandmother was from Macau, China. I was born in Angola and raised in Portugal, so I always felt like I was a true citizen of the world and the curiosity to explore it begun very early in my life.
The first time I stepped on a plane I was only one year old, and I was with my parents who were escaping from Angola’s Civil War. Obviously I have no recollection of that day but by age twelve I did my first trip outside of Portugal and I was hooked! I never stopped again.
So far I’ve been to 66 countries and visited countless cities and locations.
I travel because it allows me to connect with my history, my cultural heritage, and helps me on my personal development. I learn something new on each trip. It’s the best education you can have. Plus it’s fun!
I don’t have any favorite kind of travel destination, I like everything: city, beach, natural parks, jungle, desert, mountain… you name it, I’ve done it, or I am dreaming of doing it 🙂
When I’m not traveling I’m planning my next trip, I’m reading about locations, about experiences, about the people that live there.
Only recently have I started to write about my journeys on my Portuguese Blog and I can say it’s been a real pleasure to share my adventures with others and receive their feedback.
I’m honored to be a member of Global Storybook and I hope you have fun reading about my travels and about my country, Portugal, in this wonderful website.
