I am a Portugal based writer, co-founder of the travel blog Backpack ME. Until 2011, I used to work in Dubai, in the fields of advertising and TV production. Since the end of that year, I started traveling full-time. That is how my travel blog came about. I now make a living as a travel and food writer, both for my own platform and other publications.
