I’m thankful that we have adventurous friends. On the weekends when we’re feeling like staying in and recouping from the week, our friends invite us to go a-castling! “I was looking on Google Earth…” the conversation starts, and from there – we’re off! Navigating the dirty, rocky roads through villages and farmlands, searching for our destination (finding other sites along the way), finally, we arrive and stand in awe of the sheer amount of time the structure has been standing. So long that there is no rope, no visitors plaque – it’s just always been there – part of the landscape.
