Foggy day at the Dover Castle

*in italiano dopo le foto*

Two days before leaving Dover I finally went visiting the Castle. It is literally located over where I was living as it’s up on the East Cliffs and my “home” was just at the bottom of them. So it would have been a shame to leave without having visited it.

The medieval castle is the largest one in England, and I can totally confirm that! My friend and I only had 2 hours so we pretty much ran around taking as many photos as we could.

English weather is so unpredictable! While I was there some days I would wear shorts and tank tops and the next day I would have to wear jeans and 2 sweaters! The day we went to the castle it felt as if it was autumn: it was SO foggy, windy and rainy. You can tell it from these pictures:

My favorite part of the Castle, unfortunately it’s closed to visitors

When I left home I had done only a pony but my hair was “flying” everywhere so I did a fishtail braid

The tower is the Roman Pharos, the oldest surviving lighthouse in the country and one of the oldest in the world.

The view from the Pharos: fog, fog and, guess what, fog

I bought these rain boots for the rainy italian winter and autumn, and I ended up wearing them in England in summer

On top of the hill you can see the lighthouse and, close to it, the Anglo-Saxon church

Thanks for reading! xx


Due giorni prima di lasciare Dover sono finalmente andata a visitare il castello. Questo si trova letteralmente sopra a dove vivevo io dato che è stato costruito sopra le scogliere est e il posto dove vivevo io si trova proprio ai piedi di esse. Sarebbe stata una vergogna e un peccato andarsene senza averlo prima visto.

Il castello medievale è il più grande di tutta l’Inghilterra, e posso confermarvelo! Il mio amico ed io avevamo solo due ore di tempo e quindi praticamente correvamo in giro e cercavamo di fare più foto possibili.

Il tempo in Inghilterra è imprevedibile! Mentre ero là c’erano alcuni giorni in cui indossavo solo shorts e canottiera e altri in cui dovevo mettere i jeans lunghi e due maglioni! Il giorno in cui siamo andati al castello sembrava fosse autunno: era freddissimo, c’era tanto vento e piovigginava. Lo si può capire guardando le foto sopra.

Grazie per aver letto:)
