Claudio was born in Luanda, Angola but soon moved to Lisbon and later to Alexandria, VA, where he resides until today. From then until his college days in Boston University, he also lived a year in Peniche, a small town in Portugal, and spent another year at a boarding school in Pangbourne, England. It was shortly before interning in Buenos Aires that he began to write about his trips around the world, and figured out along the way that the thing he most loves in life is traveling. He also maintains a blog on his other love, Lusophone music, called Caipirinha Lounge.
