I been trying to think of things to do, and I wondered if I could go sleep in a castle.
As you do.
Turns out I live in the only bit of the country where this is not simples (:eyeroll:)
but Britain is very well provided with castles
especially if you count 19th century thingies with lots of glass.
I want to get a room up a tower and stare out the window and write something exciting.
... there may be a few practical difficulties if said tower doesn't have a lift, but as long as I only go up and down a couple times a day carefully, should be fine.
So I wondered if you can sleep in Eilean Donan castle
and not as such, no, but
they have a cottage and apartments with a view of it.
So I could sit in a perfectly ordinary flat, stare *at* an excellent castle, and write something exciting.
Different vibe, but doable.
Might take more planning than usual. I looked up how to get there and there was a post being all "you're in luck! it's just a two hour bus ride!"
... the picturesque bits and the accessible bits of the country maybe might not as much overlap...( Read more... )
I mean at the moment my vaguest plan gets as far as a beach, because I haven't been for ages. But there is a lot of beach. I could choose new and unusual bits of it.
... there's a bit of me that is just, like, wherever I go, I'll just be there. How different can it be?
But I went to Stonehenge and I went to see a play in original Shakespeare places and those were both excellent expeditions I still have many memories of.
... also immensely stressful, but, that happens most places. that happens sitting here...
So I'm just cranking my daydreams bigger to see what I could see.
