"While I am no expert on Portugal, I have lived here for a few months now and have come back and forth for many years since a kid - and I was born in Lisbon...
Portugal does have its good and bad...
If you go to the North you have a similar greenery and climates to UK/France. Green places devoid of constructions, parks, sunshine, lots of rain, etc and a lot cheaper...
Today I was asked to share my thoughts on Portugal in one of the Facebook groups I am part of. There is a family that wanted to visit. So I gave them my own run down of what I think of my home country...
I have done it! I got to Edinburgh! As soon as I stepped outside the heavens opened, and there came the snow! :)
So I made my way to the taxi ranks, and was straight away helped to a taxi. They took me to the Halfords where I had arranged to meet the man with the bike I have bought.
I know and re-iterate that I am well aware of the risks I took to get this bike and to fly to Edinburgh. Well aware.
But it was a risk I was willing to take.
So... My wife has a Bike....
A few days ago we brought home my wifes bike. Like bringing home a newborn, we were very careful to make sure there were no bumps or scratches made to it! Then we had the issue of finding a space to put it... and the boys bikes... and our 2 trailers... oh... the house is becoming a bike warehouse!
It is a Wilier cittadella bike. It cost a pretty penny but thats okay, because we actually saved up for it!
Here is the brochure for the Italian made bike... The Cittadella
It is my wife's first bike since she was a kid... and excited by it, she is!
** Please note: site will have MUCH MUCH more on it... we are still building! :)
We are a Vegan Home-Schooling, Prepper family traveling and making the most of this life and sharing it with our 3 wonderful kids!
