Full of dreams and expectations I left Austria at 21. Between 1979 and 1982 I travelled from Sri Lanka to India, Nepal, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand, before finally reaching the Phillipines.
Tired from my many adventures I settled here, since I had married a Filipino woman in the meantime and the first child was born. 1985 I found the right place to stay in Puerto Galera, where we opened a restaurant together in Sabang. Since tourism was still in its infancy, the timing was perfect for the restaurant to become a success.
Investing a bit of capital, we bought a small hill next to the restaurant. This purchase enabled me to fulfill the dream of my youth over the next 20 years. The caste slowly took shape, and so did 4 more little princes and 2 princesses.
Tourism may have arrived by now, but Puerto Galera has managed to keep its charm. Joy and contentment are in everyone’s hearts and thus I wish every guest a happy stay at Castle Tropicana.
