Ascending the Round Tower of Český Krumlov Castle

It was a Monday, 6th June 2011. I wanted to tour the Český Krumlov Castle but only to find out that it is closed on every Monday, except for the Round Tower.

I was a bit disappointed, but without any hesitation, I paid for the fee to enter the Round Tower.

The climb was easy as the Round Tower isn't that tall. It was equivalent to climbing five to six storeys in a modern building.

The medieval mood is maintained at several parts of the staircases, making the climb even more interesting.

As I ascended higher and looked through the windows along the way up, I already knew that the scenery offered at the observatory deck should be rewarding.

However, as I got out onto the observatory deck, it wasn't the scenery that first caught my eyes. It was this interesting trapdoor that swivels upward at the end of the last flight of staircases.

Only after that the beautiful scenery of Český Krumlov was presented in font of my eyes. I went a few rounds round the Round Tower. It is really a Round Tower as it made me went round and round.

Tissues Issued!

One of the things that almost every traveller will bring in one's day pack is a small packet of tissues. In the big cities of Japan, there is no need to bring along this item that every traveller thinks is necessary.

Just within one day of roaming around in the streets, you may get abundant of tissues issued by the promoters on the street. Getting more tissues than what you need on the streets of Tokyo is not uncommon.

This is one of the cheaper ways of doing advertisement in Japan as billboards are very expensive. Most people won't welcome flyers too. I find it an efficient way of advertising as nobody would mine a packet or two tissues issued to them.
