Earlier this year I had the great chance to spend three weeks in Portugal. I started my trip in Porto and stayed there at Marcello Oliveira's place. After some days of skating and filming for another project I went down south to meet up with Bruno Santos, who's the owner of Rove Skateshop in Leiria and made this little interview with him. We had great a time and it was really nice to be involved in his daily life!

When I arrived in Lisbon – my final destination of this trip – I decided to find a hostel and to stay there for the rest of my tour. I also met up with some rollerblader dudes to go skating with: Ricardo Lino and some youngsters like Martin, Rodrigo and Hugo.
Altogether I have to say that Portugal is the best country I've visited so far – and I travelled alot around Europe! I have never met so many nice people and felt so welcome! Thanks to Marcello, Bruno, Ricardo, the Teixeira brothers and the Living Lounge Hostel for such a good hosting!
