Weekly Inspiration #03

Sketch, Write and Keep Notebook - The new Grafolita notebooks, with 48 pages in recycled paper, are "perfect to sketch, write and keep your notes, your drawings and your thoughts. Not too big, not too small, the notebooks' size makes them perfect to be carried anytime and anywhere". Galeria Bessa Pereira - After an impressive exhibition (above, right) about the work of emblematic designer José Espinho, Galeria Bessa Pereira presents Playwood, "a sensorial game", in which vintage pieces by Charles & Ray Eames, Børge Mogensen or Charlotte Perriand get together with wooden installation by artist André Banha. It can be seen until the 14th of September.

Lisboa - Sintra - Lisboa - Despite pedalling everyday in the city, one of the things i most enjoy is going to Sintra on a bicycle with my friends. After covering the coastal road to Guincho, climb to Malveira da Serra, followed by the descent to Colares, the entry in the magnificent Sintra woods is always waited anxiously, be it for the steep climbs or the natural beauty. Before coming back to Lisbon, eating a lukewarmTravesseiro (a local pastry cake) at Piriquita is an essential stop.
