2013 sees the World Fantasy convention happening in Brighton, England and along with other writers from my neck-of-the-woods I am planning on making the trek over. This has led to a flurry of ‘what else can I do while over there’ trip planning (got to get value for the 23 hr trip each way!) and a commensurate internet image trawling endevour.
One of the places I’d love to visit is Tintagel. Essentially there’s not much to see there but some ruins and there are plenty of other ruins to see around Britain, so I was thinking it was silly to go to that area just for Titagel. Then I saw a picture. Sigh.
Some places just have romance. Whatever other interest it might hold, I know I’m going to stand there looking at the ruins as a blustery wind knocks me about and I’m going to go “wow”. Even if it’s raining. Which it may well be.
