today is the last day of march and i haven’t even posted february’s video yet… so here it goes, without further ado:
february was a very normal let’s-get-work-done month with a few highlights in between. we got our xmas presents (plus the loveliest care package all the way from canada!), did a quick trip north to check on the family and had a nice Postcrossing meeting with lots of people who came all the way to the south! i also finally bought the domain name for project X, something i’ve been working on for quite some time now… hopefully soon it’ll be live! :)
i’ve been bikeless for a year now, after selling my beloved raleigh when leaving germany. but a few weeks ago, i joined a local gym that is just far enough that i don’t want to walk there… and yet close enough that it would be ridiculous to go by car… hence, the final push for finally buying the bike!
it’s sort of a dutch bike, with not-quite-moustache handles but close. it’s simple, comfortable to ride upright and not too heavy. i miss the back pedal brake of my previous bikes, but this one has gears, which is a nice bonus!
it’s still missing the basket for the market trips, but so far, so good. i look forward to many nice rides around the ria formosa! :)
