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 9 years later my first ultramarathon. Running in the mountains became a new passion.
