Sailor, welcome to RUA!

I suspect some present will bite you. But I understand the perspective. Anyways Stay calm and sail on.

There are some amazing castles and estates in the West of Ukraine.

  Thank you for putting this up, I'm a big fan of castles; I have no idea why.

Perhaps you fancy living in one?

Too much upkeep, i'll take a house on the golf course or lake instead; but I am a big fan of the ornate structures and décor of castles. They are a lot more impressive than most that passes for art today.
