Castle HackfortAugust 06, 2015
Ben often takes many fresh vegetables and fruits home from the garden of the castle after work (yes he's allowed to do so) and it means that we eat ultra fresh for most of the time - just how I like it.
The castle is beautiful, but so is its surroundings and although it's usually buzy with visitors, Ben knows a quiet place or two and that's usually where we're heading.
The bike ride was 30 kilometers or so, and it was amazing to drive through pastures and pieces of pristine and untouched nature. I love to ride my bike, though I don't do it often anymore as I have Coccydynia, which I got by heavily fracturing my tailbone two years ago, and you can feel that pain even 10 years after the accident, especially when you sit for long hours or when you ride a bike. Long bike rides are especially a hell to me due to the pain, but we bought a special bike seat for me and I was good to go. I still felt the pain in my tailbone, but much less than was the case with my original seat; you didn't hear me complain.
