"My son and I were walking in the forest. We went down into this hole under a tree and found ourselves in a secret tunnel. It was a siege tunnel that would connect to a convent.

At the other side of the tunnel were some railway lines. There were bits of industrial remains there, like old iron carts with iron wheels.

There was this water stretching out—beautiful, crystal clear. It was a romantic and adventurous place. I was young, only 19 years old. I was with my son but more of a big kid myself. It was kind of like carrying on with my childhood."
