Am liebsten genieße ich meine Freizeit bei ausgedehnten Spaziergängen in den schönen Regionen meines Wahlkreises. Gelegentlich verschlägt es mich auch auf die Inseln an der Nord- und Ostseeküste. Daneben verbringe ich gerne Zeit mit meiner Familie und meinen Freunden. Wenn ich nicht selber Sport betreibe und meine Laufschuhe anziehe, bin ich gerne als Zuschauer bei Sportveranstaltungen zu Gast, vor allem bei Fußball- und Handballspielen.
