Hugo D.

Vila Nova de Gaia, Porto, Portugal

Hi! I'm Hugo and I am passionate about my city. I love getting in touch with people from all around the world, as far as I remember.

As a curious person, I managed to learn a lot about other cultures and other people, just for my own interest. Hence, I developed a great overall knowledge which makes me comfortable when leading with people from different parts of the world.

I studied History and Archaeology and I know the official history teached at schools, as well as the alternate versions that only locals have the previlege to undesrtand.

Being a graphic designer and a photographer for many years, I developed quite a good visual culture, useful to notice the subliminar bits of my city.

I love to get lost in the narrow streets of the medieval quarter, chat with the old and wuthentiv people of our city and stop for a drink and a snack of our rich traditional gastronomy, in a hidden place know mostly by locals.

Will you join me on this? I would love to hear from you.
