Who is PedroL?

PedroL is a world citizen. Borned in Lisbon (Portugal), he has been travelling everywhere in the last 30-something years to collect stories: wandering (as pilgrim) in Chernobyl; living among the locals as volunteer in Skopje and as translator in Riga; a never ending learner around the temples of Tokyo.

PedroL graduated in ‘communication’ and is a storyteller: he writes stories about priests and freaks, cities and communities, traditions and new trends. Under the pseudonymous Mário C. Brum, PedroL has created a literary world where surrealism meets fantasy and unlimited creativity (cof cof!).

World Wide PedroL is composed by travel chronicles, ebooks, photo essays and whatever. In a mix of innocence and show-off, PedroL believes it will help him to perceive and transmit the richness of different cultures. And maybe in finding his place in the world. Maybe indeed.

Back to his hometown during the pandemics, PedroL is now enjoying Lisbon and sharing his local expertise with other fellow travellers through a series of Walking Tours: take the best of your trip to Lisbon and feel the portuguese capital with the right vibe.

  4. “And maybe in finding his place in the world.” interesting!
    how do you know that you’re already in ‘the place’? how do you describe ‘the place’ itself? is it something physical or something related to non-physical (such as feelings)?
    have a good day!

    • hi and thank you so much for your feedback 🙂 well, literally speaking, find a place in the world is to find a physical place lol however, and honestly, the more I travel the more I realize this place is Lisbon, my hometown… which doesn´t mean that I´d like to stay here forever, in fact I want to travel and live in the most diverse places as possible 🙂 well, in the end, I think it might be something related to my feelings and emotions – it means I always need to see new things and experience new adventures, hope you understand me 🙂 have a great week 🙂 cheers, PedroL
