Besides that I have to say that I'm the kind of guy, who works to live and who doesn't live to work. I just enjoy my free time way too much to be spending more time at the office... meeting (new) people, discovering new places (near and far away), making great experiences, that's what makes me happy.
I'm mostly hanging out with friends. Enjoying a tasteful dinner at a restaurant, a drink at a bar, go to the movies or sometimes even go clubbing (but much less than in the past... I guess I'm getting old ;-)). Besides that I'm playing Badminton, watch TV-Shows (see below), go swimming, play Video games or do a Tour along the Rhine River by Bike or Inline-Skates. I also enjoy travelling a lot and went on a trekking tour through the wine mountains of Tuscany a few years ago which was totally awesome. "Short" trips through the Eifel or the Niederrhein-Area are very pleasant, too.
