From 1948 to 1960 - childhood and youth My first event far from home (about 10 km) were some days at my grandparents' in Kamen (Northrhine-Westphalia, Germany), when I not yet went to school. In 1951 I had my first day at school: A couple of years later, in 1955 , I needed a rest cure at the seaside. I went to the Northsea island Juist by train for 6 weeks. It was a wonderful time. I enjoyed it to be far from home! In 1957 cycle tour and camping It was during the summer holidays when my parents started a cycle tour with me. We took a train from Bönen (Kreis Unna) to Nienburg / Weser . From there we cycled about 20 km to a camping site in Rethem / Aller. The next day it rained but we had to go across the Lüneburger Heide (Lüneburg Heath) to Hamburg . The night before we reached Hamburg we had an overnight stay on the camping site in Heber / Soltau in the middle of the heath. The 4th, 5th and 6th night we spent on the camping ground in Hamburg
