Riegersburg (vacation intermission II)

image
Here’s the challenge: Not using the elevator, or bringing Dragons into the mix (looking at you, Targaryans), take that castle with all medieval possibilities you can think of. 😉

image
Really? We REALLY need an App for that?
image
Moat pigs! But, do you really need a moat up here? You built your castle ON TOP OF A (dead) VOLCO!
image
A second moat? A SECOND MOAT?

image
There is a watering hole for horses (Ross-Schwemme) behind me. In some spots, you can clearly see the volcanic origin of the mountain.
image
Terroir Burg. I got myself a Cuvee with wine from that terroir, sadly there’s no pure wine. But volcanic soil, in that position – perfect!
image
Enter. If you dare.
image
One last glance down.
image
What have we got here?
image
A well! Beautiful!
image
In the lower right corner you can see the castle blacksmith, doing what a blacksmith does : Teaching tourists how to make knives, selling other tourists other knives and forged trinkets. 🙂

Somewhere in this picture one can find my family. First one to spot them get’s a coupon for “A gentle nod from me in your general direction at a public gathering”. Happy Searching. 😉

No, this os not the Mediterranean, but Styria (that’s in Austria).

Just as I had foreseen, no network connection where we are staying.

That means that the prepared posts have gone, and will go up. Until I am back in touch with you, here a few more pictures to entertain you folks:

Calm your ovaries, girls. 😉

Pirates of the Styrian XD

Yeah, that’s a thing. A nice thing. 😉

Shoot out at the Styrian graveyard. idk, it just looks like a scene from a western.
