NOT ONLY CASTLES....

 

 

 

All began during the summer of 1998 when my husband and I took the decision to go on holiday by car

 and make the so-called alternative holidays. 

So we leaved with our Twingo ,it was the same color of the moon, and we directed to France. 

From that distant day, we made too many kilometres with our car, touring everywhere.  96.180 km
