Of all the pictures I liked the cruise ship the very best. Well I'm sure that's not a surprise to anyone.

Have a terrific day. Big hug to you both. :)

All those people on the photos are familiar to me!!! Strange!!! Hi, hi! I was very impresse visiting the castel and admiring the beauty of the mobels, paintings, decorations... We could imagine the royals living there at their time. And remember, we chose our cabin on the cruiseship!!! We are ready for a next cruise!

Nice job! I have not been in all the rooms, some of the castle fortress has been reopened since the last time I have had a tour. They have been working on it a lot in recent years.

That really is a grand fortress, loved all the things inside and outside - and the company :-)

So many great photos of you Tor - maybe I don't have to bother about my photos.... *giggles*
