The most technically perfect, medieval castle.....

... me, this is a sad castle because it had such great potential to be perfect for its purpose and yet never got to prove itself.
It is known as the history teacher's fantasy castle with its 13th century classic proportions and perfect symmetry - sigh!

Some days, the public transport system is not all that user=friendly. Luckily, this is the exception, rather than the rule. Today, to move to Wales, we were scheduled to take 3 trains and a bus.

... 101 states don't go near a fricking cow with a calf. you will die.

I was stunned. literally ready to say f*ck the sea, turn around and go the 10km back home. until the bull behind bellowed. ok then, a break in the fence over there may help. trudged thru a good 4 inches of "mud", skirted around (with a 100 eyes watching) and eventually made it past.
