... pastel red and yellow popping out of the dark green trees that make up the massive grounds of the palace. It is nothing like any of the other castles we have seen, all the shapes and arches and even the gargoyles were completely different. The best one we saw was this crazy looking lion in one of the central court yards, it was kind of cartoon like pulling a silly face which was pretty weird but there were lots of them.
... observation post. The majority of the buildings are in ruins but the outer wall of the castle is still functioning and you can walk along the guard paths and into the towers. This was really awesome, giving massive views, although there was a storm coming in that was affecting it a bit. The wind from the storm also made walking the guard paths interesting, as it was quite strong and blustery at times.
Sadly I had run out ...

Without boring you to death we had a difficult day with the hop-on/hop-off bus company and would not recommend this one to anyone. In fact we might do something by way of complaining about it on Trip Advisor or directly with the bus company. We weren’t the only ones who were not happy and we feel for the bus driver who received some verbal abuse by some for different problems than ours.
For anyone ...
... lied on my tummy. I was just zoning out, listening to the water and the other people and playing with Kuba's hair. It felt so romantic!! So then I wanted to go back to my hostel to change and shower and the boys went off to do the same thing and I was going to meet them back at theirs later. I was pretty tired. I was tempted to just have a nap for a bit back at my hostel. So I showered and changed and then closed my eyes for about 30 minutes before going back. But none of them ...
... room with large blue tiled murals on all 4 walls.
The last caste for the day was Monserat, and by far the highlight of the 3 castles for me. The inside is decorated with gypsum and plaster work. I hope that we have a couple of good photos to add to the blog. Definitely high on the list ...
