    And another one from the 13th century:

    Castle Rameyen, Belgium
    It started as a watercastle. Bought by Nicolas Rubens, son of, in the 17th century. During the peasant's war (last years of 18th century) the collaborator in residence was driven out by unlawfull combattants, or so was the version of the French liberators.

    Anyway, moving on:

    Castle "Steen" in Antwerp, Belgium, commanding the river Scheldt.
    I've been told that the castle must carry the flag of Brabant by decree of the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire. A task dutyfully and diligently carried out by the Antwerp FD, eum... until recently. Is it a case of sudden vertigo..., a lost key..., the enemy within...? Who can tell, I can only hope they don't get in trouble. An emperor can be pretty unpredictable.:mad?

    This is about as close to a castle as you can get in Ohio.

    Pure refinement and enchantment. A castle true and true.
    And a worthy motorcycle to pair with it.
    Very nice find.

    Of course we have snow! Why not? We are at about 1,000 metres above sea level. The North of Spain is usually cold, especially Castilla y León and sometimes it is very wet, for example Galicia, Asturies or Euskadi.
