Sports consume quite a bit of my leisure time, both at home in Düsseldorf or away on vacation.

My favorite activity must be alpine skiing. I started when I was 5 years old and have been skiing in Switzerland and Austria every season since.

Sailing and other sports around water such as water-skiing have been around for the last 25 years as well. Golf and fitness are activities that are fairly new to me, though gradually I am finding friends that join in and make it fun.
