About me

the advantage of having a friend abroad is that he can lead you through places off - the-beaten track only an inhabitant knows - that is my proposal in Lisbon and surroundings - Cascais, Sintra, Obidos, Pálmela. You want to hike, you are a photography amateur, you name it, I'll take you! More than a visit I propose an interactive experience, a hands-on-cooking way to know a country and its people.

My proposal

knowing Lisbon by experience - its ceramics

I offer to you

A visit to one of Portugal's famous decorative tile and ceramics factories. See and learn the methods and craft still used today since the factory's founding in the 18th century . You' ll paint a tile and keep it. A tour of a fabulous convent covered by 16th century tiles Loose yourself through one of Lisbon most interesting neighborhouds. THE oportunitty to take fantastic photos, to visit some eclectic small stores to see and shop for vintage clothing, ceramics, linens and so much more. Dinner in a local restaurant enjoying the sound of the portugese guitar and listening to fado, Portugal's famous, soulful music style

Looking for

discriminating travellers who understand that in order to know a place you have to experience it rather than only visit it
