The last two years have been a bit hectic around the world, with lots of panic, anxieties and uncertain realities.

In recent years, mostly due to an improper personal time management and to not having the right people around, I almost forgot all about biking for the fun of it ( I use my bike in the city, but it’s purely a practical and easy way to move around).

Last year, just one month before the entire world would be facing this modern pandemic, I headed for a 2 weeks business trip to Cairo.

Weekends at the Suru Chalet are for sure becoming a tradition for us. We keep saying that for us it’s the perfect mountain escape, especially when we travel with our daughter. 2021 had quite a good kick off for us – we are in the mood for being active and enjoying nature and since snow refused to show its face in the city, it left us no choice but to head towards the mountains for some proper winter scenery.
