Captivating Castles

Captivating Castles of Instagram!

By on April 27, 2015

I love castles!

Castle: A large building, typically of the medieval period, fortified against attack with thick walls, battlements, towers, and often a moat.

Castles are some of the most beautiful pieces of architecture I have ever seen, and they are surely not to be missed when you are travelling the world!

So to celebrate my love of castles, I wrote three articles about my favourite castles I had visited on my travels, including:

1. Neuschwanstein Castle, Bavaria, Germany


2. Caernarfon Castle, Wales


3. Edinburgh Castle, Scotland


My Very First Instagram Challenge

So a few weeks ago, I started my very first Instagram challenge, where you had to TAG your castle photos with the hashtag #captivatingcastles and LIKE my Facebook Page “The World As Bec Sees It”

Many of you got tagging and hashtagging your best castle photos and I want to thank every one of you who got involved in the challenge! Thank you so much for sharing a beautiful part of your travels with me!

So without further ado, here are the #captivatingcastles of Instagram:

      Prague Castle was definitely the favourite in the Instagram challenge! Your welcome Ashlea, my favourite photo was the one with the stone brick patterns! Very interesting to learn about, and I love that it was a different perspective of the castle! 🙂

    I think so far my favorite castles have been Heidelberg Castle and Eltz Castle, both in Germany. They were both so breathtaking!
