We were amazed. It was truly beautiful and it gave us time to think about important things. In a very mad way it was creative and full with information. We loved it! Love to do it again.

Just pay this place a visit. You won't be disappointed. It's so different from anywhere I've ever been. The amount of work that must go into maintaining and improving this place must be enormous.
