Our home for a week -- a castle! Really! A real castle -- large, cold, grey, old .... If one is looking for a 5-star hotel, this is not the place.

Camping is one of those activities that everyone likes to talk about, but who ever sits enthralled as one recounts the packing and unpacking of smelly coolers, wet sleeping bags and muddy tents? Therefore, I will not go into details regarding the above 5 "P's". Instead, I will use one photo to bear witness to this unspeakable (albeit, necessary) activity that all successful travellers must engage in. Some of the photography equipment David is taking on our trip. Enough "said"! ... read more
