Arnold Schwarzenegger takes a trip down memory lane. Hundreds of fans gathered to see the Hollywood star in Austria as his childhood home was turned into a museum. Speaking in his native tongue, Schwarzenegger said the museum was now home to prized mementos. SOUNDBITE: Arnold Schwarzenegger, actor, saying (German): "It is a small house that stands here behind us, it is an old house, it has been repainted in yellow and freshly renovated but it was here that I spent my youth days. You all know that you can see lots of things behind these walls now, the things that were very important in my life, that played a big role in my life. For example the first weight that I lifted, or the Terminator model, or the desk from the governor's office in Sacramento." The 64-year-old says he hopes the story of his transition from bodybuilder to movie star to politician will inspire others. SOUNDBITE: Arnold Schwarzenegger, actor, saying (German): "It is my great wish that everyone that visits this museum fully understands that everyone can be successful in their own way. Everyone. Stay hungry. Stay hungry (repeats stay hungry in English) Although Schwarzenegger was disgraced in the U.S. after admitting to an affair with his housekeeper, some fans like Branko Krk still say he is a good role model. SOUNDBITE: Branko Krk, fan, saying (Slovenian): "Schwarzenegger is like my friend, I even named my "Terminator" motorcycle club after him, he is a bikers' legend." The former California governor is now working on his second autobiography. Alicia Powell, Reuters.
