What do you like most about Portugal?
This may sound a bit lame, but luckily Portugal has the majority of its awe-inspiring coastline and beaches facing west, which happens to be the orientation the sun sets every day!
Life in Portugal’s major cities has been enhanced by historical trams running over the past century, particularly in Lisbon as it’s impossible to leave the city without a ride on the popular tram 28 which connects areas of the city still inaccessible by metro.
More than 800km of coast, the biggest fishing zone in Europe and laughable prices make Portugal one of the most fish-friendly places you’ve ever been to. Dourada, Sardinhas and Robalo are always delicious options.
Portugal colonized Brazil, Angola and East Timor – producers of some of the finest coffee in the world – so things make more sense - you’ll never find better tasting value-for-money coffee in Europe.
Fado is probably the most melancholic music you’ll ever hear and still somehow makes the ideal soundtrack for every trip to Portugal. Even if you don’t understand a word, it has the power to make you introspective. The new generation of singers like Ana Moura and Mariza is making fado sexy and modern.
Eating or drinking while walking is uncivilized. You can buy a Coke from a vending machine and drink it standing there, but once you are mobile, you must put it away!

What do you like to do when you are not working?
I have a young son who was born in Portugal so he keeps me very active. We like to play football and ride a bike.
My family and I spend most of our time outside enjoying the outdoors, enjoying Algarvian beaches, walking, socialising and eating out - there are just not enough hours in the day to do everything.
I like fishing it's just totally awesome when you can take an artificial lure put it on the fishing line and wait, it’s so relaxing - a great thing to do with your family, to be out in fresh air and warm sunshine!
