Pedro Branco, Managing Director of the Lisbon Market Centre at Engel & Völkers, answers the following 10 questions:
1) A book
I recently read "What I talk about when I talk about running" by Haruki Murakami. I really like biographies and in this particular case, it's about a curious comparison between marathoners and novelists!
2) A phrase
"The best is yet to come"! It's more than a sentence, it is a way of life. Believing that the best is yet to come is the greatest source of energy to jump out of bed everyday!
3) A place
Sintra in autumn! The climate and the warm colours of the trees create a unique atmosphere for a Sunday stroll, and of course a mandatory stop by Casa Piriquita Restaurant!
4) A song
For a music enthusiast it is a difficult choice, but it has to be U2, "Running to Stand Still". This song is memorable!
5) A sport
Has to be "Jogging"! There are no excuses ... wherever you are, alone or with someone, I love putting on my trainers, choose a song and go out in the street for a jog.
6) A movie
"Midnight in Paris" by Woody Allen. I loved the idea of the main character, a nostalgic writer, mysteriously returning and always at midnight, to the 20s!
7) A destination
Praia dos Salgados in the Algarve! A place full of good times where we go every year with friends and family. It also has a great restaurant and fabulous sparkling sangria!
8) A favourite restaurant / food
"JNcQUOI", I like to have dinner there after hours, enjoy its cosmopolitan atmosphere and to meet up with friends without making any prior plans! The food? It has to be the lavagante hot dog. It is delicious!
9) Your perfect day
A jog in the morning, watching the sunrise, lunch on the beach with family and friends and then with a bit of luck, it's Rock in Rio day ... many hours of music ahead!
10) A person you admire
It has to be my mother who has been my biggest role model since my childhood and continues to be the most important member of our family.
