I grew up in a family that loved to travel to off-the-beaten path destinations, particularly in Europe and South America. I am of Portuguese descent and grew up speaking the language, and during my college years I took opportunities to work and study abroad in Portugal and England. Today, I work as a travel writer with a particular focus on culture and history.
