So, you’re from Portugal. Anything you miss about it?
Where to start… The sun that is soo shy here in Amsterdam. The beach that, despite what they want us to believe, does not exist here ;) – apologies to all the Dutchies. The sea, which we can find here, just not at a welcoming temperature. Portuguese food, particularly from my hometown in Madeira, is amazing. The landscape, aka mountains. And, most important of all, the red wine – especially from the Douro region!
What would your call your own personally brewed beer brand?
Inspired by the words of Mary Berry (The greatest British baker ever): “A little bit naughty and nice!”
Naughty and Nice would be a great name for a beer! NN for short!
What’s the weirdest thing we’d find in your desk drawers?
I have something that has been sitting in my drawer for forever. A red bowtie, for when I need to sharpen my attire. You know, for all the important meetings I don’t have ;)
Favorite internet meme?
Do you have a favorite quote from a movie?
I like the Batman movies, especially the Joker performances, so it has to be…
“Ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?”.
There are many others but I just really like the sound of this one.
Name one thing that’s on your bucket list
Visit Japan! I really want to do it, never had the opportunity to visit that part of the globe. Can’t wait to tick that box!
