True Travel Tales

Here's a non-fiction travel writing competition. There's a £200 prize on offer - every week! I'm good at the travel part and here's a picture to prove* it. I'm less good at the non-fiction part. A lot less good.

*It was taken about 6 miles from my home so proves nothing, except my point about non-fiction.

    1. Would you believe hangliding over the top? No, OK then - I was up the tower, leaning out and holding on with my toes.

  4. They say true stories are always the best. I think I've seen that pic before.

    1. Don't think I've put this one up before, but I've certainly posted other ones taken at the top of a castle's tower.

  5. Fabulous picture, Patsy. You could have jotted notes down whilst hanging above the ruins. If that were me, I'd have written the article in 30 seconds flat. I hate heights! You are brave.

    1. I'm not great with heights, Nicola, but I feel fairly safe on something that's survived for hundreds of years, withstood battles and is regularly inspected.

  6. Hi Patsy - amazing shot - and I love seeing things from above - we can understand the feel of its greatness so much more easily ...

    Cheers Hilary

    1. Aerial shots are good for giving an idea of scale, aren't they?

  7. Great picture, Patsy, shows so much - but I'm glad it wasn't me taking it from that height.

    1. Once I've climbed up I like something to prove I made it, Carol.

  8. You do like castles, don't you? Were you a Tower Princess in a former life?

    1. I do like a castle, yes. In a former life (if I had one) I imagine I'd have been outside the castle walls tending the cows, or perhaps brewing something with herbs.
