The yearly exotic travel destination for the Summer of 2014 were the Philippines. It was probably one of the most tranquil and uneventful trips I’ve ever done with my family, since it was shorter than usual and my parents decided to stick to the beach and avoid cities. We did visit Manila for a couple of days, but that will be up on another post. Today, I’m focusing on the beautiful landscapes, rocky silhouettes and […]

My last long lonely walk around Rome on a hot Summer day. I finally got the courage to walk all the way up to the Giardino degli Aranci (where I didn’t see any oranges) and that one magnificent church overlooking Testaccio.

On a weekend trip back home to Lisbon, my dad and I decided to drive up to Sintra to visit a particular monument that people usually miss, since it’s nestled between several other major ones – Palacio da Pena, Quinta da Regaleira, Castelo dos Mouros and Convento dos Capuchos to name a few. This one is very small and, as most small monuments in the forest are, it’s also incredibly pretty. It’s called the Chalet da Condessa – translated roughly, The […]

Spring is finally here, with some bouts of rain… and allergies. I was lucky enough to be visited by my dear friend Tanya, who happened to be in need of some new photos. Here are a couple of my favourites! We shot these at Villa Sciarra in Rome on a very hot afternoon between two days of rain.
