One of the best parts about travelling (for me, at least), is getting to go to a place that’s seen a lot of history, where I can walk on the same streets that centuries of people have walked on, and imagined what life was like back then. Which is probably why I’m fascinated with castles and old stuff. Sure, when you hit up a new destination on your next vacay, you could try to stay in a major city, or a chain hotel, but why not try staying in a castle?
These places are castles you can actually stay in, and if you bring your special someone, you can have some pretty interesting experiences (role-play anyone?) They’ve seen some things, had some bloodshed and are breathtakingly gorgeous. Here, you’re not just learning about the history of the area, you’re sleeping in it. You’re living it.
I can’t wait until my next vacation.
