During their ninth stay in the Ötztal valley, Yvonne and Jens spontaneously decided to get married here. What a surprise! On 15 July 2011, they entered the bond of marriage in the beautifully appointed and historic register office of Umhausen. I want to say thank you for the many years of loyalty and for choosing me as your marriage witness!

We surprised Yvonne and Jens with a burning heart of fire made up of fifty torches we lit on the mountain just behind our house.
