I am a Portuguese travel and food writer. Back in 2011, I quit my advertising job in Dubai. I started exploring the world with my husband Ashray, from India. We are the founders of the travel website Backpack ME, where I regularly publish articles about food and local culture in Lisbon and beyond. I have also published a travel food book about Lisbon, called Lisbon in 100 Bites. After 5 years living as a nomad, I have returned to Lisbon and I am eager to share a less touristic side of the Portuguese capital, with travelers who want to experience “the real deal”. I love food, unusual activities, chilling with good company and discovering new aspects of the city every day. With my tips, I’d love for you to experience Lisbon this way too! + More
