I like any outdoor activities such as a horse riding, camping or hiking.
Especially I am really crazy about a horse riding recently and I go out on weekend as much as possible.
Actually, my desk is Hi-Lo adjustable desk using our products, so I am standing 40~50% of my time even when I am at the office. To work with standing that is really good for our health.

I would use it for my vacation. I would love to go somewhere south islands just like Maldives, Okinawa, Hawai etc
I will do scuba diving and just relaxing there.

I like any Danish breads. Hotdog and the pork with brown sauce are also my favorites.
