TWO STEPS IN THE RAIN
Walking in the rain is good for the soul and spirit. When it rains, a short walk in the forest behind the hotel along the stream fills us with energy and also allows us to discover small animals, such as frogs and snails, that go hidden on sunny days. Furthermore, even the rain, as it comes, can go away, leaving room for a magical atmosphere illuminated by the rays of the sun that penetrate the forest.
