pod day 13 – burg eltz castle

This is a pretty sweet castle. I was really bummed that the construction completely ruins the outside, but you could still tell how huge it was and how beautiful it was situated in the middle of the valley with a river around it. The bridge to the castle totally reminds me of Lord of the Rings, and sometimes I wish I were born in the Middle Ages. But then I’m reminded that it was dirty and gross and everyone was sick and died when they were 20. So, maybe not. But it was still cool to tour the inside and imagine what castle life would be like. It makes it much more real than Disney movies do.
