Here are two photos of the fairy tale castle of Hochosterwitz in Austria. As you can see, it's perched way up high at the top of its own mountain—and it's a LONG way up! You leave your car at the bottom and walk up and up and up through a dozen or so fortified gates (photos another day). I was pregnant when we went and it was quite tiring! I really love old places, though, and I loved this one. Plus, the view from there was lovely—as you can probably imagine from the second photo!
Originally from New York, I spent many years in Belgium, as well as six months in the former USSR. I'm happily living stateside now, but I've taken many photos along the way and I'd like to share some. On a different note, I'm doing my best to turn the Brit hubcap into a Yank!
