About Me


Wandering traveler | Viandante


I consider myself a wanderer, at least in spirit. I travel the most I can. I like to meet people from different places and learn about local traditions, specially music. | Considero-me um viandante, pelo menos de espírito. Gosto de conhecer pessoas de locais diferenes e conhecer a cultura local, especialmente a música.


"I don't do projects for life; I could miss the projects that life has for me" (Agostinho da Silva, portuguese philosopher)
"Não faço projectos para a vida; osso estragar os projectos que a vida tem para mim." (Agostinho da Silva, filósofo português)
