As a mountain lover, I like to venture into the outdoors and let myself enjoy Nature while doing some cool sport, such as ski touring (in winter) or trail running (in summer). I also like to travel the world and do multi-day hiking trips with Terra, my friendly dog. Apart from that, I really appreciate photography, poetry, and podcasts/books about comedy, philosophy and popular science.
Overall, I think there is always something to be grateful for -no matter what- and that we live in a wonderful world, as the song goes. My mantra is that life is too short and valuable so as to not make it an urgent everyday task.
