I love my job as researcher. But I also have many other passions, including hot air balloons, figure skating, traveling, cats, and music. And of course, I love to spend time with my family, two sons, and friends!
Hot air balloons
From childhood onwards, I have been a big fan of hot air balloons... They are so majestic and have something mysterious. As a farmer's daughter, I was very impressed when sometimes a hot air balloon landed on our property.
For several years now, I am a crew-member of a hot-air balloon team (Hot-R). My main tasks are to prepare the balloon for a flight, to follow the balloon till landing, and to pack it again. I try to do this at least two evenings a week in the summer (March - October).
We also make international trips with our balloons - in particular Austria and France are trips I will never forget!
