Just like a fairytale

Like any little girl, I was a big fan of of fairytales when I was younger. Those wonderful timeless stories had a way of capturing my imagination like nothing else could! So of course, when I grew up to realise they were all make-believe, I was more than a little bummed!

But a few days ago, when I stumbled across some pictures of real castles in Europe, I reverted straight back to my childhood days. I thought, if there was anywhere on earth where fairytales could actually exist, it would be in and around these castles (seriously, I was just waiting to see Snow White or Cinderella pop up somewhere)! The white-wash bricks, picturesque surroundings and towering turrets look like they have leaped off the pages of my favorite books, they are so beautiful and majestic!

I thought I had better share these with you all. I'm sure you will be just as enchanted by these wonderful structures as I was...

These are all definitely going on my 'to go to' list!
