Kurt Bodewig Bundesminister a.D.


For physical exercise, I enjoy riding the bicycle, especially cycle races. The most important part is not winning, but taking part!

I like to spend my free time with a good book and in particular a thriller. There are few things as pleasing as a glass of good red whine to latin-american authors such as Skarmeta, Garcia Marquez or Vargas Llosa or the skandinavian crime thriller authors like Jo Nesbo or the icelandic Arnaldur Indridason.

Years ago I used to spend my vacations in scenic regions of the world. I backpacked in the glaciers in Iceland, the Kilimandscharo in Africa, the Blue Mountains in Australia, the Alaskan Ranges and the Andes in South America.
