After a long and hard winter here in Schochwitz we are happy to welcome the spring and watch the last snow melting. The new season is about to start and we are looking forward to meet many new guests and volunteers. currently we are 3 people and a dog, Ingrid, Mario and me (Hauke). The dog in the picture is Ronni, a Himalayan Sheepdog who is always eager to protect his turf but when he gets to know you he is a real gentle soul. We are preparing the castle for the upcoming season and getting in shape with daily Yoga and meditation.  Yvonne and Simon, two volunteers from 2017 are going to rejoin us, sadly there were problems during the journey so they will arrive in some days. furthermore the time is flying while we always have something to do, in the castle and in ourselves.
