My first trip overseas at the age of 19 was to Austria in the summer of 1988, actually to the same area I now go skiing couple of times a year. As part of the trip I stayed three nights at Hohenwerfen, famously the castle used as the filming location for Where Eagles Dare (“Broadsword calling Danny Boy”), back in the 80s a youth hostel, now a folk museum. We spent several days hiking and climbing in the nearby Tennengebirge mountains, stunning part of the world.
I grabbed a pic of the castle as we went past it last week. Felt very nostalgic!
