I’m driving fast in the left lane, guy comes out in the road out of nowhere trying to get hit, I swerve to miss him and the force of the sharp turn makes one of my breasts comes off in my hand. I woke up with the image of a perfect plump breast [...]
Castel Fratzburg is bout 6km up the mountain next to Merano Alto-Adige, Italy. Its perched on mountaintop. We had lunch so we did only first four courses of the tasting menu.
