Mariana Pereira, Team Assistant at Engel & Völkers, answers the following 10 questions:
1) A book
"1Q84" - by Haruki Murakami. One of the best books I have read and one of those I would read over and over again. Both the first and the rest of the volumes.
2) A phrase
“It's better to regret what you have done than what you haven't." was always a phrase that accompanied me from my college days and which I keep as one of the best reminders so that I can make the right decisions in all stages of my life.
3) A place
Disneyland Paris. I only visited it last year, but it reminded me of my childhood and allowed me to be a child for a few days!
4) A song
Bohemian Rhapsody from the Queen, because it was a song that accompanied me during my childhood, my father is a Queen fan and passed his interest to me.
5) A sport
Football. I'm a huge fan of Benfica, I never miss a home game and since I was little I really liked to play football, so much so that when I was a kid I wanted to become a football player for the team when I grew up!
6) A movie
Mr. Nobody, I do not know if any of the scenarios reminded me of my life decisions, but it was one of the movies that inspired me the most.
7) A destination
I really want to go to one of the Nordic countries just to experience the beauty of Northern Lights. I have not been yet, but they are in my dream destinations list.
8) A favourite restaurant / food
I'm a fan of sushi, but I do not mind traditional Portuguese food.
9) Your perfect day
Start the morning with a walk by the sea, followed by lunch with family or friends.
10) A person you admire
It may sound lame, but I have to say my boyfriend. He is one of the best people I know, the most hard-working and with the most resilience and positive thinking attitude. He is one of my inspirations every day!
