One thing I really loved doing was getting out and exploring.  One of my favorites was finding castles and castle ruins.  Some were easily accessible while others took some time, hiking and even climbing to reach.  These pictures show some of the amazing structures I was able to access.  Enjoy browsing through and experience the passage of time.  Some of these were built as far back as the 9th century.

I'm also going to add some info on each castle on this page.  Enjoy reading.
