What do you do and why do you do it?

Since 2013 I have my own business in tourism in Brazil. I used to be an official tour guide in Rio de Janeiro because I love showing the city, nice conversations and meeting new people. Nowadays I'm in Barcelona concluding my masters and figuring out new possibilities to share my passion of helping people enjoy the most of their trips with less effort and frustration.

You’re broken hearted - what tracks does your heartbreak playlist consist of?

If I'm heartbroken my playlist consist in romantic-tacky-sad Brazilian songs. LOUD! LOUD! LOUD! When it goes I go back to the SAMBA.

What are the best TV shows of all time?

Friends and Breaking Bad - I'm not very original in TV shows theme. Do not come with side B ones!

Name some spots in Barcelona that are good for a Tinder date.

Gola Taperia for a romantic but not predicable dinner or The lime House for some drinks in a casual and relaxed place.

Who’s your hero and where in Barcelona would you take them out for a serious hang?

My sister! She's a beer girl and I'd take her to Mikkeller for a serious beer night!

Where do you buy those fabulous clothes of yours?

I'm not the person for clothes tips. I buy online in American OLDNAY - I'm sorry!

What’s the area/ spot in town you’ll never be caught dead in?

Eixample Detra!

What’s the thing you LOVE to do in your city that you never get to do?

Sunset at Montjuic Castle.

What’s the most decadent / extreme dish you ever ate in Barcelona and where did you get it?

Patatas Bravas at Bar Xapaco. They have a good online reputation, it's close to where I live, only local visit but it's really bad! Oh GOD!

What restaurant in Barcelona looks crap, but the food’s amazing?

La Caravana in Gracia! It's not that craps looking, but for sure the best falafel sandwich in town.

Where can you get the best cocktail in Barcelona? Which one do you like?

I'm not a cocktail person but I had an amazing Mojito at La Rouge in Rambla Raval once. My friends liked it a lot - and they are fan of cocktails.

Where would you take your partner in Barcelona if you wanted to really pamper them?

My wife love seating outside in the sun, drinking a beer and eating a fried calamaris, so for sure I'd take her to a Xiringuito (beach bar) at Bogatell beach.

Which snacks can you only get in your country, and which ones do you recommend?

Patatas Bravas - at Vinitus bar!

What are the Barcelona spots a first-time visitor can’t miss?

Montjuic Castle

Tomorrow’s your last day in Barcelona. How do you spend it?

On the beach drinking a beer.

What’s your favorite vacation city in the world and why?

Maceió - Brazil. The best beach, cheap and amazing food.
