The Newsletter of Castles of the World Tours
Where Bricks and Mortar Still Surpasses Virtual Reality

Welcome to our premier issue of The Traveling Knight.  Our newsletter dedicated to offering travel information, tips, news and tour announcements.

TRAVEL TIP:  Take a Change of clothes on a handbag.
When traveling with you on a flight take with you a small handbag with clothes and bathroom items for one day.  Many times the airlines would lose or delay the arrival of the luggage.  Thus, by carrying a change of clothes you should be able to survive one day without your luggage.  Carrying this small handbag might also result in a bonus gain for you.  Many times (during the busy travel seasons) the airlines will offer incentives for passengers to wait one extra day.  The incentives can be as high as $1,000 US dollars good for an airline ticket.  The main reason most people do not take those offers is because they have to be at their destination for some particular reason.  The second most popular reason is because they don't have a change of clothes.

TOUR ANNOUNCEMENTS:  June 2001 tour SOLD OUT, September tour still taking reservations.
We are happy to announce that the June 2001 Great Castles Tour has been sold out.  We have reached our goal of 35 passengers.  For the September tour of the Great Castles Tour we still have a few spaces available.  They will be given out on a first come first served basis.  After it fills up, we will only take people on a stand-by basis.

FEATURED CASTLE:  Angers Castle
Angers, the capital of the historic province of Anjou, is considered one of the most beautiful cities in France. Foremost among its many notable structures is the magnificent twin-spiraled Cathedral of Saint Maurice (12th-13th century) and the massive Castle of Angers (early 13th century), with its moat and soaring towers. Angers was once inhabited by fierce Celtic people who tenaciously opposed the Roman penetration.  For more information about Angers Castle click here.

THE BIGGEST TAPESTRY IN THE WORLD
Today the castle of Angers houses a tapestry museum that includes the famous Apocalypse series of Nicholas Bataille who did the weaving and Hennequin de Bruges did the painting. It is 140 meters long.
