Which travel destination has impressed you the most and why? Travel is my passion. I have visited 56 countries and they have all marked me by their cultural, historical and geographical identity. My most recent favorites: over 10,000 km and 6 time zones, crossing Russia and China aboard the Transiberian, and walking 900 KM on the le Chemin de Compostelle.
Which travel destination do you dream of and why? Travel the Eastern European countries by car or train. Even though they may look alike, because of their past, they have a specific personality and offer a variety of landscapes and experiences.
Which Olympic discipline appeals to you the most and why? Alpine skiing, all disciplines combined. In addition to the stress of the competitions, skiers have to face varied and unexpected snow conditions and comply with them every time. I admire their composure and their ability to adapt.
What do you prefer most in events and why? The diversity, the unexpected and the opportunities that come up every time. Every event is an adventure and requires adaptation until the last minute. Another way to travel!
