Castles.....yawn

On Sunday I took a quick trip to the town of St. Goar which lies along the Rhine river and over 40 castles flank both sides.

Sad to say....but I've become NUMB to the whole castle scene. You see one, you've seen them all. This one was massive in size and had hidden doorways and tunnels everywhere. Like most, this was severely damaged during the war..... 








See how little the person is in this photo? It gives you an idea of how large this castle is.


See the archery target underneath? This place would be a Dungeons and Dragon's NERD fantasy.



See the castle across the river in the trees? They're EVERYWHERE




Finally! A professional photograph. One of my coworkers on the trip is a photographer and we did a mini shoot. This is the only photo I've seen so far. I like how the castle is reflected in my sunglasses.

I've been buying a TON of clothes and accessories in celebration of the upcoming FALL season. I'm hoping to have more photos taken so I can do a real layout of French and German trends for Fall/Winter.  Goal Date: September 10th!

Hi Selina!!

Ugghh - I can not stand those toe shoes. All of the military people wear them and swear they are the best shoes ever. I can't do it - they're hideous.

I'll run over to your blog and check out your EUROTRASH. How exciting!!!

I can see where you'd be coming from on the castle front. I felt the same way after the 15th church/cathedral. Woops!

Your picture at the end is FABOOSH though.

I don't think I can ever get tired of castles! I've never actually seen one so I'd fall in love :)

i loveee castles, but i understand what you're saying! im more a scenic person anyways...i am 10 times more blown away by what God put on this earth than what people created for some reason ;) one of the reasons i love living in norway for sure!

i remember seeing the heidleberg castle with my parents when i was younger and i didnt "get" it...i was SOOO bored with it. but now they are cooler to me. a little bit at least!

That is such a nice picture of you, and I just LOVE your hair! Really wish I could pull off short hair but you have to be petite or have distinct facial lines (if you know what I mean, like models) for that.

You hot little minx how gorgeous do you look in that photo :)

Hahahaha, I sooooo agree with you. I once did a long documentary for a channel in Greece about castles and after the second it was aaaall the same again and again. And honestly, they all look alike all around Europe.
Nice portrait indeed :)
xoxoxo

I can't imagine Castles getting old but maybe it's like when I was in Peru and after a while all the ruins start looking the same :)

OMG you are so chic! You look like a model!!!

"Castles, yawn" - too funny! Isn't it silly how we become so blase' about things because we're so used to them?

Hi Everyone! All of you are so sweet - and great job Krista on throwing my nickname in.

I can't get over how nice the picture turned out. Honestly (I know I'm not supposed to say this),, but I think there was some 'adjusting' done. My bottom lip looks bigger than normal. Oh well, if celebrities get photo touch ups - why can't I?

If I find a COOL CASTLE, I will definetly post it. Especially one that still has the original furnisings - those are amazing. But if I keep seeing 'ruins', I'll just keep on driving.

I have some exciting news coming up.....stay tuned!!

Double yawn on the castles. I get bored with stuff like that too. I know we're supposed to be in awe of the structure and blah, blah, but I just can't do it. It's booooooring.

You, on the other hand "just walked off the cover of Vogue" ~ look fabulous! Stop that! You're making the rest of us look bad!!! ;)

But, I still heart you. XO
