Castle In The Snow
Carefully making our way around the twisting bend on the icy path, each step strategically placed to avoid any slipping and sliding we glance up to discover the turreted castle peaking through the winter bare branches covered in a dusting of frosted snow. A delightful discovery making us feel like we've stepped back in time to a fairytale destination of damsels in distress and charming princes rushing to rescue them from peril.
The frigid air and aching limbs from the climb forgotten in our moment of wonder, appreciation for the beauty of this majestic castle on the hillside. Thoughts of the mad king with wonderfully exotic and slightly egotistical dreams only his royal budget could achieve. A magical place to visit in any season but in winter a truly inspirational destination.
