5 questions to Lisa Galke
Lisa Galke is the restaurant manager at the Genuss- & Aktivhotel Sonnenburg. Service is in her blood, you can feel it immediately. She welcomes me to her workplace with a broad smile and I feel immediately welcome. We don't have much time between two shifts, because there's a lot to do - debriefing, preparations for the evening business, and carefully setting the tables. So we sit down in the stylishly furnished restaurant and start chatting.
How were the early days for you when you look back now?
It was a bit unusual at the beginning, because I left home at a young age.But I always knew that I wanted somethin long-term, not just a seasonal job. Since I like to have people around me, networking was important to me. Because of the hotels and restaurants in Kleinwalsertal, many young people live and work in the valley who have similar interests. So it was easy for me to meet new people.
What do you like to do most in your free time?
On my days off, I go hiking or jogging. I can't do without music, because that's the best way to clear my head. My favorite jogging route is the Burmi Trail along the Breitach. It's a wonderful jogging route when you have the stream next to you and are surrounded by trees. In addition, the route is not too steep and ideal for an after-work run. Even on busy work days, I often still go out into nature, so the time of day doesn't matter. Sometimes I just take a walk through the valley. I really enjoy the silence in the evening, when I can take a deep breath and switch off.
