The tuga

Gonçalo Cadilhe states in his book “Planisfério Pessoal” that he was hoping to sort out the dilemma of “to travel to write or write to travel” when he started the around the world trip described on his book. At the end of his journey the answer was to “write and travel at the same time”.

Not being a writer, I have the dilemma of working to travel or to travel to work. For the time being, I am collecting the experiences, sharing with you my travels, discoveries and moments in the form of chronicles and photos of the tracks covered.

When I travel, I learn, I see and I touch what I had learnt from books.

Leeds, 23th July 2008


I was born in Leça da Palmeira, Portugal in 1971. Years later, I decided to move to  UK with some friends to study architecture. I was awarded with a BA (Hons) Arch International and a MArch degrees by the University of Huddersfield. I am a registered architect in UK and a member of RIBA. I have worked for over 10 years in the design and construction industry with numerous projects ranging from the modest to the significant.
