About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To visit 50 (44/50) different countries before I'm 42!

ABOUT ME

Hi from Portugal! My name's Miguel and I'm currently living in Barreiro, a city that is just 20 minutes from Lisbon by boat.

I'm available to show you around our Capital, mainly at night because I’m working during the day, and also the surroundings of my hometown, Barreiro, as I have more availability during the weekends and it's the only period where I can host (just 1 person at the time).

I hope to get from CS, mainly, the possibility to meet inspiring people, and also some useful information from addicted travelers like me and, at the same time, share my recent travel experiences (and future ones) with all of you.

Cheers!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

No that amazing is the right word, but being arrested in Copenhagen was the 'moment'. Long history..

What I Can Share with Hosts

Portuguese hospitality and a journey through the district of Setúbal, famous for the gastronomy, winery industry, fishing activities and also for the natural park located in Serra da Arrábida which has beautiful views and beaches. During the week, I can meet people in Lisbon as I work there daily.
