Karla: Hello, Mr Baumgartner. How do you feel after accomplishing this exciting but unusual quest?

Ka: How do you keep fit?
F: I have a little cottage in a little town in Salzburg where I spend most of my time. It is a skiing resort, so, in winter I spend my days on the highest peaks doing all kinds of winter sports. I like cross country skiing and biathlon. In summer I also spend a lot of time there because there is a lake in which I go swimming. I also visit gyms and use other sport facilities.
