When a couple of friends and I joked that we should rent out a castle during our reading week, none of us actually thought that we would go through with it. A few days later, though, we had found an affordable attic apartment on Airbnb and were making plans for how to get there. What started out as a crazy scheme turned into the perfect setting for writing essays and daydreaming that were were royalty.
We set off from the local train station at around 1:30 and were walking up the driveway to our castle by 3. We were pretty much blown away by the place that we would be living in for the next three days.
