We had a real-life, medieval castle all to ourselves today. It felt creepy and romantic at the same time.
For those inclined to Game of Thrones, King Arthur, or the Disney version of Rapunzel, there’s more than enough for castle lovers to make it interesting. In our case the fact that it was a compact castle with a lot of ins and outs, ups and downs, that we were completely free to wander every nook and medieval cranny was a treat, and the fact that it overlooked the winding Rhine river felt like I was a guard on the watch for enemies from the North (or South, who knows).
It’s been a while since I’ve felt this excited about a castle and despite the off and on drizzle, the sunlight peaking out on occasion, with hardly anyone there, the well-maintained castle became our little playground on this cloudy Easter Sunday.
