Adventure Inspiration: Castles, Towers and Ramparts

It's taken me a while to organize my photos from the Strasbourg trip, but I've sifted through them and picked out all the blog-worthy ones, which I'll put up in several installments.

Today's episode, "Castles, Towers and Ramparts."

European readers will likely yawn at these (like "yeah, I've got one of those just down the street from my house"), but of course we in the States don't get to see such structures on a daily basis. Personally, no matter how many times I go back to France, I never get tired of visiting them.
