Hi guys, sorry for the lack of posts!
Let’s dust it off starting with how my trip went. I know it’s been sometime since I came back to Brazil, but it’s never late to share adventures.
I started my journey going to Lisbon and then to Troia, in Portugal.
I stayed in Lisbon at a very nice hostel named Living Lounge Hostel, very recommended.
In Troia I had one of the most amazing art experiences. I met artists from all over the world, including Finland, Indonesia, Germany, Serbia, Spain, Portugal, Chile… I was able to listen to Syd Mead, Scott Ross and Ben Mauro. I laughed and drank beer with the super-nice guys from Techno Image. Really helps to boost your life. In the end, Trojan Horse was amazing to meet new people and do networking.
Later I went to Switzerland to spend some days with two good friends from Brazil who are living there. I stayed in a countryside farm at Elgg, in the canton of Zürich. There, the family received me very well, everyone was always nice to me. I was also able to travel a lot through the country with my friends. They even prepared a very special surprise to me: we went to Giger Museum! My heart was filled with awe seeing so close the original paintings from Alien and the Necronomicon. I will never forget that experience.
We also traveled through the Alps and over there I saw some of the most spectacular vistas ever. Such a beautiful, clean country!
After Switzerland I went to London. There I visited Camden Town, the National History Museum, went in a nerd-tour with my good friend Gustavo Brauner and, of course, to EGX. I played Alien Isolation and Evil Within before everyone else 🙂
I also talked to many developers and was able to learn a lot.
London is amazing. So many different people living together. Everyone seemed to speak a different language and to not care about what you were wearing, how you were looking. Many lessons I have learned in London.
This trip was extremely interesting in a lot of aspects. I learned that the world is at the same time bigger and smaller than I imagined it to be, and that you really need to meet new people and new artists.
I came back a different man.
