Interesting to read. I've been living in the USA for just over a year now, next week my fiancée (she's American) and I are moving back to my homeland, the Netherlands. I've really heard a lot of Americans express an interest in castles and the middle ages, and I've been asked many times if I happened to live close to a castle.

Chance has it my parents' house (where I grew up) is literally across the street from a small moated fort from 1393, named Het Juffere. Not a large or famous castle, but a castle nonetheless.
