LOOKING FOR A CASTLE

SHOW ME .... your selfportrait is here

Last saturday I wanted to visit the castle of Beersel not far from my home to make some pictures. I knew where it was, but as usual didn't know the way. I asked Miss GPS who always directs me with her friendly voice and so far I always arrived at destination.

At the beginning we had some misunderstandings because I mixed up left with right and she had to correct me with an offended "Recalculation", but at the end I arrived although a little later as foreseen. But know I thought we are used to each other.

I left my home and turned left and right as she told me and I pinched myself mentally in the left and right arm just to be sure not to mix it up. Suddenly I had to stop because there was a deviation. Miss GPS "recalculated" and I drove and drove and suddenly I was in the middle of nowhere, left and right fields and I with my car in the middle of a little way which was more for farmer's tractors then for my beloved little car. No soul around. I assured myself, telling me that I still have my mobile in case of ....

The only person I met was this one



looking at me with a suspicious eye, when I got out of the car to take a picture.

Driving slowly in my shaking car, suddenly I saw houses and a normal street and a little further down my castle ! I assure you I really was relieved !

Are you still arguing with your GPS, Gattina? How hilarious. I'm very happy that you eventually found your castle, though. Just think of the fight if you'd ended up somewhere in Holland, say. Goodness me!
