Obviously, my childhood was pretty rough. And when we went to Disney World? I decided that Cinderella’s castle didn’t count. I wanted the real deal.
So, you can imagine how I felt when I was 18 and spent a summer on an exchange program in Germany. I remember biking past the ruins of a castle on my way to school every day and immediately having to write home and tell everyone about it. There were turrets! And those little windows for cannons (or something)! And I bet there was probably a draw bridge that I couldn’t see!
