Rita Alves is a native Lisbonian, however it seems that she has traits of Indian, or so people say. Her taste for travel probably came from her ancestors, who might have travelled to India or Goa. Despite her enormous sense of wanderlust and curiosity about other cultures, gastronomies, people and beliefs, Rita never forgets Lisbon, the city where her heart belongs and where she adores enjoying the light beautifully shinning on the river. She keeps travel journals from her journeys and shares some thoughts on her travel blog. She also writes about Lisbon for various online travel guides, and is the AFAR local expert for Lisbon.
