Born in Lisbon, Carla Henriques grew up camping and road tripping around Portugal with her family. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in environmental engineering and worked for many years in quality control at a multinational German company. A two-year stint in Asia changed her life—and career—permanently, and on her return to Portugal, Carla started working full-time in the travel industry. As a guide for a leading Portuguese adventure travel company, Carla works with visitors to Portugal as well as Portuguese groups traveling in other countries. In her free time, she enjoys reading, watching documentaries, and SCUBA diving.
