    Liked the minimal structure and speed. As others have referenced you definitely don't need bootstrap for this site, i'm sure you can replace the bs columns in the speaking section for your own code (unless you're intending to expand the site with some more sections).

    Don't like the fonts, serif vs sans-serif is a matter of preference and mood, I don't like that specific serif. Also don't like the default monospace, take some time to test different parings. Typography is 99% of your website show it some love :p inspiration here

    Watch out for that 800px breakpoint: at that point (some old tablet resolutions), 40% content is too narrow and line-length is not the best for legibility. In text-based layouts like this I tend to prefer fixed with content, that give you more control of your text across screen sizes (like medium does)

    Rule 45 to 75 character per line, is not an absolute truth but is a good guide.

    Good work, keep improving!

      Thank you for your feedback and I'm already looking into different typography options.

      (Also, special cheers from Coimbra!)
