Next fun day trip we took? To a ridiculously cool castle. With great people (read: my fiance Jake, our friends Jason and Gabriel, and a new friend, Chiara). Where we could run around the open-air turrets/towers/etc like 5-year-olds in a McDonald’s play-place. In the beautiful sunshine. Basically just pure awesomeness.
Let me begin…
Castle-front picnic to start off our day!
Castle Playground. 🙂
Lovely day, but a bit gusty on those towers....
Notice the small triumphant figure on top? That would be Gabriel. "I'm king of the world!!!!"
We kind of scattered in all directions and started finding each other on separate towers...and of course taking pics the whole while. This shot, of course, was taken from the vantage point of yet another tower.
Had to do it.
One of a long series of many silly shots.
I don’t know. Maybe playing around a beautiful old castle is impressive to you, maybe it’s not. (I don’t really care, actually…not to be rude, but impressing people isn’t really the point here). There was just something a bit, forgive me…magical about that day: with 5 friends, 3 languages spoken (English, Spanish and Italian….and a whole lot of Englispanglitalian), a roadtrip to a castle, a day to do nothing more than enjoy ourselves in that beautiful place and finally— be completely silly(i.e. our true selves). Just one of those times that carve themselves into your memory, I guess. Vale, enough musing/rambling/blubbering off into space. I’ve got more blogging to catch up on!
Until next time— besos!
