You Can’t Skip Life, Can’t Skip Us, Can’t Skip PORTUGAL


Hey there, today I’m sharing a video ad about my beautiful and inspiring country: PORTUGAL.

No matter how old you are, at some point of your life you heard, seen or even met with some Portuguese people, gastronomy, landscape, event, culture, memes or even Portuguese slangs.
You definitely heard about Cristiano Ronaldo, and Salvador Sobral’s amazing and intimist music “Amar Pelos Dois” at Eurovision 2017 for the past weeks.
No, trust me, YOU HAVE, we are EVERYWHERE, we are *HUGE*, it’s awesome
I’ll let the landscapes and actors speak for themselves, it’s a truly breathtaking video approach.


As the great Portuguese poet(s) Fernando Pessoa (or Alberto Caeiro) says: «we are the same size as what we see, and not what we have». Go, explore. Set off to see a new world, get lost amidst the light that a new place brings. You can’t skip freedom. Can’t skip youth. Can’t skip life. Can’t skip us. You can’t skip PORTUGAL.

Look to see, not to show. Go to places you don’t know. Head off in discovery. Visit Portugal 🙂

Best regards and stay awesome,
Pedro Calado
