  1. Friend of your Austrian fanbase.
    This place looks very familiar. I remember climbing up a very very steep slope from the beach to get there a few years ago. Quite a beautiful spot.

  2. My Grandfather and Grandmother were the Keeper’s here, this is their old house and thats my mum’s bedroom there. Out of it.
