    I Love Castles!

    I love castles. Ever since I was a kid. My stepfather was in the army so we lived in Germany for 3 years. The castles are so amazingly beautiful. There was one in particular that I remember. It had gold throughout the castle. It had a huge white swan statue. A beautiful jewelry...

    German Castles

    I love castles. I have always found architecture fascinating. I live in Germany and 3 km away are two castle ruins in Wolfstein. The walk through the forest between them is very lovely.  I have been to quite a few here in Germany including Neuschwanstein...the one they...

    Stunning

    I love wandering through the old castles, and some of the Roman fortress remains. It is amazing what those from the past built. Of course there is a fortress of my mind, which I try to keep the drawbridge open to.

    Heating Costs

    I love history so visit a few of the medieval castles over here in Britain, must cost a fortune to heat but at least some have very good dungeons :)

    Dungeon

    If I could have a castle modernized (good heating and good running water being the main concerns) I really would. They're so beautiful. Castles and Fortresses are high on my to-visit list when I travel. They're magnificent. I'm sure even some half destroyed ones would be...

    A Visit To The South

    A long time ago, over sixty years ago, my family returned to France from Algeria, where they had lived among the indigenous peoples, where they made a life as part of the French colonial establishment, in their smaller way, and first they came as so many did to Marseille. Forty...

    Tintagel Castle, Cornwall

    It's hardly worthy of being called a castle now. What's remaining of the structure is slowly crumbling into the sea. But there is simply something about Tintagel that is absolutely breathtaking.  I can imagine what it must have looked like back in its hay day. Legend has it that...

    Within the Walls, I Find Solace

    I can walk the halls of an old fortress, home, or castle and "feel" the people that have been there.  I sense the imprint of the energies of those that have gone before.  I am particularly moved by places where great battles took place.  The very mortar...

    I love visiting old forts. Here in the US, there's not much on the castle front, but there are plenty go old forts to visit. One of my favorite places to visit is the old Spanish fortress at St. Augustine, FL - the Castillo de San Marcos. It was the first fortress I ever visited...

    Of Course I Do

    Ah yes wandering around old fortresses is lots of fun. The one that I've been to the most is the one on Shark island  a fort converted to a prison then retired and a few ghost stories to go with it I'd really love to visit an old castle but they are in short supply here...
