What do you like doing in your free time?
I already do what I love for money. If I'd get no money for it, I'd still do it because it's my passion (but shhh, do not tell my boss!). Besides that, I'm into:
- Traveling. Unfortunately, I haven't gone outside of Europe yet, but I'm on my quest to visiting the majority of Europeans capitals. I just love to experience new cities and different cultures.
- Playing the E-Piano. I started this hobby during my studies. Listen to me learning "Pachelbel's Canon in D":
- Doing sports. Having a brother educated in physiotherapy, I know how important movement is for one's body. Especially, I like to do sports incorporating my own body weight, e.g. performing a Handstand:
...Anything else left?

I think it is important to never stop learning and always looking forward to improving. I sincerely hope you have a great day, are happy and learn something new today! Let us each contribute a small part to world peace. Thank you.
