About This Blog

This blog was originally started as a thread on the forum pages of an animal rescue site. Now it's here!

The articles you find in here are purely for entertainment (yours and mine) and (with one or two exceptions) are all tongue-in-cheek chronicles of the World (my bit, anyway) as I see it.
No disrespect is intended towards anyone unless I make a mistake and make it too obvious.

I hope you enjoy my offerings. Feedback and comments of any kind are welcome.

    Holy Moly Georgie Man - them's some great shots you got there! Of all the ruins I've visited this is not one - never even heard of it so thank you for bringing it to notice.

    YAM's worried though... are the doggies with you? Are they allowed into the grounds? (YAM! kya? too curious...)

    &*< Looking forward to more fab photos!

  2. People often confuse palaces with castles. Palaces are built to impress while castles are built for defense. This site was obviously designed for defense. Great pictures.

  3. I'd love to see some of those castles one day. Nothing like that here of course.
