i grew up in a small village in the woods, so the best thing to recover from the city madness is walking through a forest and take a deep breath of fresh air for me.

i was invited to the very nice family run parkhotel tristachersee. the slogan of this hotel is “small paradise” and for sure it is. this hideaway is a magic place on the small lake tristachersee next to the dolomites (mountains). when you step into the door the first impression is like coming home – everything is very warm and cosy and you feel very welcome here. that’s also because the owners greet you themselves and every morning you get a good weather forecast (always sunny ;) ) from mr. kreuzer.

to perfection the lumberjack look i asked for an axe at the reception – the eyes of the receptionist were scared i can say. but after i explained myself michael – the facility manager – brought me one,  also with a big question mark on the face. but in the end they also loved the result and that there was no blood ;)
