Yesterday for my birthday I traveled with my wife to
to have a good time together in Italia. First stop
was Bolzano, beautifull little place in Sud Tirol..
Everything was perfect, the weather, the food, life can be good
Next stop was the imposant Castle Sigmundskron on top of the mountain, where Mr Messner
started the MMM Firmian, Messner Mountain Museum (Check for background info his websites
www.reinhold-messner.de & www.messner-mountain-museum.it ) Reinhold Messner is living hero
to me, a pure legend who proved that the imposible IS possible. His MMM project he calls the
15th 8000mt mountain he conquered, 14 x highest mountains & his mountain museums makes no.15
Here are some impressions...
And then, after such a long time having contact together, we finally met and shaked hands
What a super interesting individu he is indeed, a peacefull charismatic speaker I trully respect!
We really had a great time together and enjoyed every minute. While flying back home over the Alps
only thing I could think of is how happy I was to meet yet another Rolex legend from the past
Many thanks for all the wishes I received yesterday from my Rolex buddies from all over the world!
