... horrendous with people sleep on one large bunk with no mattress or blanket. Sometimes it would get so cold their hair would freeze and if they got up to use the toilet they'd lose their spot so many didn't bother!

Supposedly drinking this water would increase longliviety and cure disease. It was delicious, clean, fresh water, and felt great and soothing on my sore throat. A miracle cure! Maybe!Next stop, Turulda, home to another old castle, once seat of the bishop, and a muchly ...
