Strolling down in some unknown avenue or going deep in an old quarter is something indescribable when anyone travels inside oneself and discovers something new, absorbing what’s around and the energy of each city or village.
So the travel begins and something new opens inside us, not only the perfect view for the postcard picture but a feeling is born when we are touched by the humanity of the urban landscape. Funny enough that is why shopping gives us a fulfilment gratitude and power, we find what we need. And those shops, those streets gives us what we were looking for! Even admitting a hidden desire yes we can find new desires while travelling.
But going back on the adventure not only we feel comfortable to take a plane to go far way but we find ourselves in the busiest street or avenue of a city or a village because life is pumping out and it can be a home for humanity. Walking along with the crowds or maybe discovering a hidden alley or a cute design store.
Stopping for a nice coffee or tea maybe it’s a regular place or the most charming. Well good chances or tips take you to the right places, but enjoy your break feel the flavours and what’s around you. Absorb and observe what a diversity can be found in any place any corner.
People are beautiful and yet full of mysteries and each city or village make a picture of who is behind the widows, the doors and what is important for each one. Mapping places can be like digging gold back on the days, really it can take a life time to really know someone! And in fact places show their layers of skins on the surface and there is so much to take!
The best feeling is that freedom of just scrolling down any main street of the world ad going into heart of the centre of life, a square a crossroad or any corner in any place of the world.
Connecting as stranger and entering in an atmosphere unknown to us can be the beginning of knowing a bit better what is there at that moment, who are those people in those places, what makes them laugh and best enjoy at a table. The flavours and sounds behind any place is truly what represents ones culture and distinguishes each corner of the world.
Explore and travel connecting to the locals in the most active corner or silent. Allow yourself to travel inside you by trusting and setting yourself free to a small step of feeling familiar with any culture or at any hub of the world. See the eyes, smiles, elderly, children find any their daily routines. Absorb the real life and feel the human family.

Its a thrill you may first think, yes but also what a huge responsibility. All eyes and ears are set on you and the inner hearts looking to be touched or the minds evaluating each word and tone…
It has been a challenge of years, considering as a child I was so shy… So finally through opening and sharing I can almost sing to the world. It’s about sharing something special, trustful and a view over the past culture, all the life around you and what you treasure and would advice to your best friends!
Being since a ever a researcher gives you an endless urge to discover and learn more new old facts that offer a better understanding of the past, the living present and which direction we are going. I am graduated in History and followed the subjects of history of art, completing it with a Master in communication.
As local growing in Sintra and Cascais, it’s privilege to tell you in first hand some of my experiences and what I have learned throughout the years. Then Lisbon is just around, a world was open. By studying and working in the city of light with the magic Tagus river and exploring the hills that unfolds and showing all the secrets that lies in each corner, window or endless steps to climb to heaven.
Working in the tourism field for more than 8 years I found myself now lucky to be living this moment in my own country and being able to receive and share stories with new comers and travelers. Hoping some may return others may keep a good memory…
Living, working abroad and travelling, was also a life experience that made me grow and becoming more humble at the same time. How it is such a vast and rich world with so many cultures and people and how we are together in the blue planet.
To be a storyteller is mostly a pleasure to expose some of my ideas and show around places that are unique. Travelling in words, time and space, meeting new people and sharing moments together! I start by inviting you for the best views, a nice delicious restaurant and to step outside what is written in the guides or maps…

Ser livre é ser como uma andorinha, que voa livremente mas em união consigo mesmo…
Voa em jeito de liberdade e nos movimentos do vento, torna-se no ar que respiramos, circulando e girando com o rodopiar do elemento ar,
Andorinha leva-me nesse horizonte de tudo seguir sem nenhum rumo definido, apenas o sentir das estações do ano e do ninho da tua evolução. É o porto de abrigo onde descansas para por fim seguires a tua viagem, bate as asas com as tuas crias e ensina-as a serem livres para de novo regressar à tua beira, ao teu conforto.
Andorinha voa pelo vento e vem com a primavera que tudo renova e faz crescer a esperança nos corações que se elevam no azul do céu e nos teus voos, que buscam outros olhares, outras vertigens, que urgem pela transformação, pelo alento do sol na sua pela que traz a bonança e a libertação dos sentidos…
Oh Andorinha, leva-me no teu voo, já qu eu aqui cresço só de te ver e sentir a nova estação a brotar.
O valor de tudo é conhecido pela sua ausência e é na carência que se atribuí valor ao que se retoma ou é familiar… Mas o novo vem e mostra outra vez como é infinita a liberdade de existir no mundo!
As andorinhas recordam-nos todos os anos disso…
Vem andorinha no meu regaço para sentir de perto o que é ser livre e existir simplesmente ao ritmo das estações! Por tantas possibilidades e lugares que desafiam as leis do tempo e do espaço é no voo da andorinha que se revê o detalhe no todo, na natureza. Nós ali e por toda a parte! Que se soltem das gaiolas os sonhos, espíritos, vontades, sentimentos prisioneiros de si! Voem andorinhas que desconhecem o medo!

Open roads are there for us
Drive through with no inner force
Just surrender to those days and instants
When it’s all so clear and right to us
Feelings of safety of the unknown
Seems funny and crazy to known
The darkness and the empty room
All over again and once more
It’s a thrill to experience what once was
Now look another way more
Till the end of the road
It seems so familiar and predictable
Each time a restless feeling takes us
To another open road
Lost and lonely it can be without
That infinity that drives us safely
Through storms, noise, cold and dryness
Eventually it all finishes and starts again
Hopefully with our heads up and open hearts
There’s a lonely road that fills the world
Smile we are all there like a family
And the magic of living is without a doubt
The way to overcome fears and ourselves
Carry on with a lighter storytelling weightless
Fly with that child inside you even knowing
There’s no turning back just forward and
Mistakes are part of the labyrinth of life
Mothers are also reborn and
We all take baby steps and
Open roads are there for us
