Don and Connie wanted to take us to Eltz Castle while they were here, which is apparently Rick Steves' "favorite castle." I don't follow/watch/read Rick Steves - I have nothing against the guy, I just haven't really had occasion to. But that day I went to his Facebook page, and sure enough, Burg Eltz was featured as his cover photo, freshly updated with a picture from when he must have visited recently.
I posted my own not-as-good pictures on Facebook already, just to mix things up a bit, but I thought I should post a few here too for blog continuity-sake. (No photography allowed inside the castle, unfortunately.)
