As regular readers know, the marquis loves his castles. The fact that there are a whole lot more that he didn't get near last time has been weighing on his mind. So early tomorrow we're off on our travels again, for another week's intensive castling. We're staying in the town of Eguisheim, http://www.ot-eguisheim.fr/ which is endowed with three fortified towers of its very own plus two more castles within walking distance, which should keep himself busy for at least some of Sunday. There are many more within driving range.
We're going by train. We planned to do so last time, but the Eurotunnel unsportingly caught fire (I told them tunnels were dangerous) so it'll be a longish journey -- Cambridge - London - Paris - Strasbourg and then collecting a hire car and heading on to Eguisheim. My bag is packed, a taxi to get us to the station is booked and a table is reserved for a week on Saturday at the amazing Strasbourg cheese restaurant http://www.cheese-gourmet.com/restous.html
All of which means I'll be off line for just over a week from late tonight. Have fun, be good (or careful, as you chose). (Grass King is going with me. IT needs to be kept moving. Oh, and so is the Sekrit Projekt. I have thoughts, I have plans...)
