Rami and the bike


  • Cycling
  • I love outdoor sports and being in nature, combining intensive physical training with technical capabilities.
  • Sailing
  • It's a sport requiring knowledge, discipline and planning ahead. I love the Greek Islands and the Mediterranean area's beauty and the 'old meeting new' vibe.
  • Football
  • European football has lots of South American players, who kick the pace up a notch.
  • You'll find me rooting for FC Barcelona and Chelsea.
  • Family
  • Weekends and vacations spent with family and friends are the best.
  • Sci-Fi movies
