Hello and welcome to bastoraexpress!
I am Charmaine Abreu Lobo and thanks for stopping by.
I grew up in Goa (India) in a beautiful place called Bastora, and now live in Belgium. I am a lawyer and so is my good looking, loving and patient husband, Joel. I have the cutest little daughter in the world, Emma and a very lazy dog, Shadow.
Bastoraexpress, came from my law school days. My husband had this cool super bike and would drop me home ever so often. We spent so much time discovering new places on that bike and that’s where my love for adventure started.
This blog celebrates my lifelines – my grandmother (nana), mama and dada, Joel and Emma, for all the love, inspiration, support and patience – and making me, me! Life is too short and its time to make your own reality – they all told me in many different ways.
So grab you glass of champagne and join me in living life to the fullest! Any views or statements expressed are mine and not those of my employer. Enjoy this site.
