Lynne says, “what I would say is most likely gonna be geared additional in direction of men and women who do want to be in the outdoors, or at the very least, you never have to be some sort of hardcore, hiker or ski or one thing like that. But even any individual that just appreciates the good outside appreciates beautiful mountains.”
“The Dolomite peaks are there. And, of system, the Dolomites are also a UNESCO globe heritage web site. There are 9 complete Dolomite parks. And I. Six of them are in the larger Trentino Alto Adige location, probably 3 or 4 of those that are particularly in South Tyrol. So it’s a great place to take pleasure in the landscape or get out into the landscape, get out into the mountains.”

Thanks for taking me back again to Adelaide, wherever I invested 3 months on scholar exchange in 1992. Shout-out to Concordia Higher education!
But I do have to weigh in on the Captain Hahn controversy, due to the fact I was shocked when you, Chris, reported that he was Danish, not German. For the reason that the identify is evidently German.
What occurred is that he was born on the island of Sylt, which experienced semi-autonomy inside the Danish Kingdom and became component of Prussia in 1866 (soon after Hahn’s demise).
So, it could effectively have been that he was a Danish citizen, but ethnically and linguistically, he was most almost certainly German (or Prussian). He also sailed on a German ship and took German settlers to South Australia.
Prior to the time of nation states, I always obtain it a little bit tricky to say that an individual was of this or that citizenship. In particular so when it will come to multi-ethnic empires or, like in the case of Germany, to nations that simply did not exist at the time. (Germany as a nation state was only recognized in 1871, immediately after Hahn’s loss of life. On the other hand, that does not imply that persons didn’t have a notion of getting German right before, at minimum because the [failed] revolution of 1848.)
And even much more so in that fraught region, which gave us the famous Schleswig-Holstein question.
Right until currently, there is a German minority in Denmark and a Danish minority in Germany, the two safeguarded by guidelines and treaties.
