Selected books that pushed me to hike …

Alle Wunder dieser Welt
A book about the World’s Wonders with many, many pictures that spanned from the Pyramids to Cologne Cathedral and via Arc de Triomphe in Paris to Taj Mahal and Machu Picchu. My father got it as a Christmas present from a business partner, but soon I confiscated it and revelled in travels all over the world. In short: it was my childhood bible.
