My passion for the mountains started when I was a child when I would often make small excursions around the city or go camping with the scouts.

Changing from "summer mode" to "winter mode" when the actual winter conditions were failing to show up was even more frustrating especially during the holidays when feasting on the Christmas meals was [...]
