Alonissos Hello feature-self 👋. Alonissos is awesome! Go back there. flying over the alps Tucked away on this little Greek island is slice of paradise.

torscharte tour


Torscharte ski tour route Another weekend, another ski tour. This time visiting once again the peculiar Austria valley of Großer Ahornboden. leaving the parking lot Peculiar because though it is Austrian, one can’t drive from there to Innsbruck without going back up and around through Germany, 🤯.

Oblastle Dev Log 001 Lately my family and I here in Germany have been playing a lot of Wordle and Worldle.
