  • About rachel_branco:

    Brazilian, a daughter, a sister, a girlfriend, a teacher, a life enthusiast in all its forms -- especially when it comes to arts and culture. Knowing people and places is what makes me feel alive the most. As a traveler, I believe I try to do so as independent as I can, but preferrably with some well-known company (I'm adventurous, but still a bit wary, I guess). I'm also a tourism researcher really interested in how consumption process has become central in our lives and identities, currently conducting my dissertation on P2P accommodations/short-term rentals. I love teaching more than anything, but travel, cinema and gastronomy are not far behind!

  • Hobbies:

    Most of my free time I spend planning the next, or a maybe-in-two-years-or-three trip to as many places I can think of. It's my therapy and also my fuel to get through routine. I also love spending time scrolling through Wikipedia articles and following hyperlinks everywhere until I forget where I came from -- in other words, I love learning, and learning the most random material. This means I love reading, too. I don't have much time as I did when I wasn't a masters student, but sometimes I can sneak out to go to the movies and/or marathon a new TV show. And, of course, I'm really into cuisine; not just the fancy stuff, but the experimental and local as well.

  • Favourite places:

    NYC, definitely, the most energetic place I've ever been to. Italy inspired my romantic and cuisiner traits. South Spain really conquered me. Brazil never ceases to surprise me. I haven't seen much of the world yet and I surely have a lot of places in my bucket list... But honestly, I can't think of anywhere it wouldn't sound good to visit. Anyhow, I hope I can get to go to Japan, Peru, Iceland and South Africa within the next five years.
