With all the development taking place in Qatar, I realised that this is the right time to be here and be a part of it. So I welcomed the opportunity to join the hotel which is in the beautiful West Bay area. I live close to Aspire and so find myself hanging out a lot at the Villaggio Mall, Aspire and its parks. I am looking forward to exploring the coast and pursuing two of my favourite hobbies: Kite-surfing and fishing. I'm from Porto in the north of Portugal but I haven't lived there since 2001; if there is something I miss about home it's the river and seaside cafes and restaurants which are great places to spend time with your friends and have good meals. I also miss the beach waves where I used to surf whilst living there.
