Not enough castle too much interview
15 March 2018 | by saphiretreeSee all my reviews

I absolutely love these old castles with their derelict dignity still standing guard over the landscape. But we only get to see glimpses from a distance or a view from an abandoned window of the once magnificent structures. Please show more of them, instead of spending video time on the interviewee talking about the castle have their voice in the background while engaging in the ancient stones.
