Lonely Planet Portugal video

Back in the spring, I went from Lisbon down to the Algarve in the south of Portugal to shoot a Lonely Planet video on the town of Portimão. I was a nervous wreck working with an actual crew for the first time ever, in a town I had never been to and knew nothing about. Miraculously, the result turned out quite fun, despite my bad attempts at Portuñol.

The video just went up a couple of days ago so I thought I’d share, for a few minutes of your entertainment and a dose of shameless self-promotion. To watch it, click here.
