"Living and enjoying it" bambino36's Profile

I've been away for sometime but I hope now I have some time to update my pages and create some new ones :)

a little about me

My language is portuguese, however I'm gonna write this in english.
My name is Antonio, I'm 37 and I come from Portugal. I love to travel, I love the sea and I'm addicted to sports. I practice triathlon and sometimes I participate in some running races. When I was younger I played football, practiced rowing and I competed in athletics (100m, 200m, long jump, triple-jump and javelin throw).
"Anima sana in corpore sano" thats what I would say in latin


My country

I love my country. It's small but so different when one goes from north to south or to the islands.
The people is different... the wine is different... the food is different.. the trees are different
In fact there's so many things to learn and see in my country that probably a lifetime is not enough



The people

For those who are familiar with the portuguese traditional music Fado probably I don't need to say anything...
To the others... well, come to Portugal and learn it :)

Most visitors to Portugal head for the beaches and the perfect golf courses of the Algarve. But beyond those south coast touristic resorts lies the least explored corner of Western Europe, a country of magnificent landscapes, historical cities, rural backwaters and contrasting traditions.
The portuguese borders were virtually unchanged for 800 years. The ten million portuguese speak OUR own language, WE follow our own unique cultural traditions, and we have a centuries-old history. (read more...)


Last trips

From August til October I've been travelling through some beautiful european cities. Some of them I already knew but now I have some more material to improve my pages... Hope to do it in the next future

Hamburg, Germany
Berlin, Germany
