Personal interest 1

Personal interest? Well. I think that this is one of the most beautiful castles I’ve seen, espically with the pointy tops. [: I love it. If I lived here, I’d try my best to modernize it as much as possible, by sealing up cracks, indoor heating and air conditioning, electricy, and running water.

  • I would also probably rent out sections of the castle as a hotel, because, seriously? That would highly profitable ( imagine staying the night in a castle that had modern comforts).
