My name is Afonso and I'm 28 years old. I've been an Airbnb host for 2 years now and I love it!
I've lived in Porto for most of my life and every day this city continues to amaze me. In the last couple of years Porto has been growing radically, specially when it comes to tourism, and it has been a pleasure to be part of it. Fortunately, this growth didn't affect the city's truly unique charm. It only turned it more dynamic!
I'm really passionate about traveling and I've already visited more than 30 countries (and counting). But when I am not traveling what I really enjoy is welcoming people from around the world.
I really appreciate getting feedback from all guests. This will help me continue to improve my hosting skills.
Hope you enjoy Porto. See you soon!
