one second everyday — february 2016

today is the last day of march and i haven’t even posted february’s video yet… so here it goes, without further ado:

a month in our lives — february 2016 from meiadeleite on Vimeo.

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! :)

a bike for algarve

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!

after some searching, i’ve found a portuguese brand that does just the kind of bike i was looking for. meet the órbita classic:

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! :)
