D&D scours the Internet to bring you breaking news in 'Hermit Culture' in a feature we proudly call Hermit News.

"I had thought I had no chance,” Vanuytrecht, who comes from near Brussels, told the Austria Press Agency. “When I read about the Saalfelden hermitage, I thought to myself: that’s the place for me."

"Vanuytrecht said he thought his previous experience working with homeless people, alcoholics, drug addicts, prisoners and psychiatric patients would stand him in good stead. His divorce and the poverty he experienced as a result was also good preparation."

Well done, Stan. And we look forward to many years of never hearing from you ever again.
