Family Biking In The Cherry Season

 ‘I am cycling on a beautiful sunny day. I can see around me green hills covered by vineyards, large orchards and curious faces of the villagers. They’re probably thinking what I am doing there. It’s just a leisure bike trip, a perfect way to enjoy the end of my weekend. It’s great to get away from the noisy and dusty city. Suddenly I stop. What do I see? I am standing in front of a garden with a cherry tree, luring me with his red shiny small pebbles. I ask the permission of the owner and he’s quite pleased to see me climbing a ladder to pick some great fresh cherries. I am happy like a kid. I continue my tour and visit a beautiful wooden monastery and right at the end of my trip I enter a manor-museum and I get to see how the rich landlords used to live a century ago. This is what I call an impressive combination of culture, tradition and natural flavours…’
