Home Chile 2013 Mountains Diving About Contact
My name is Gert. Family life and job are keeping me busy but every now and then I can follow my hobbies - mountain climbing, trekking and photography. Getting older I follow the "keep it or loose it" rule and sport became an important part of my life. At an age of 47 I finished my first marathon and plan to do now one or two marathons per year. I hope to find more time for extended cycling tours too.
