The Towering Medieval Hotel

Fun Show Last Night!

Last night’s show was a lot of fun. Be sure to check out Kate Russell from the BBC, Thomas Hawk, Brian Matiash, Don the Snowflake guy, Ollie Dale, and Gino Barassa… and Dave Veffer as always! We do the show every Monday night at 7 PM PT, 10 PM ET !

If you come here to the website just before the show, you’ll see the embedded player up and ready to run… and you can see last night’s show in the post below this one! You’ll even see a sneak preview of a documentary that I am in from Ollie called “Virtually Famous”.

Daily Photo – The Towering Medieval Hotel

I’m sure Europeans find this kind of architecture to be quaint and banal, but I rather like it. In fact, I’d say it’s just about one of my favorites! Whenever I see old buildings in this style, it makes me a little bit happy.

This one was in the village of Mont Saint Michel. It was one of very few hotels that are tightly woven into the old medieval walled complex. I didn’t go inside, but it felt like it was right out of Skyrim!

    I spent a night at this hotel two years ago and beleve me, the interior is as beautiful as the exterior!

    Is it functional? Like the antiquated feel of it 🙂

  • Le Mouton Blanc, and that type of architecture, is great, and isn’t all of Mont St. Michel fabulous? We were there summer 2011, just as the Tour de France was passing on the mainland. The police closed the access road to the island right behind us so that we, and only a few other people lucky enough to be there that day, had it all to ourselves. A rare occasion as Mont St. Michel is usually packed with people shoulder to shoulder.

    Thanks for being so generous with your knowledge. I have learned a lot.
