Bukhara - The Holy City Bukhara is one of the most ancient cities of Uzbekistan, situated on a sacred hill, the place where sacrifices were made by fire-worshippers in springtime. This city was mentioned in a holy book "Avesto". Bukhara city is supposed to be founded in the 13th cent. BC was during the reign of Siyavushids who came to power 980 years before Alexander the Great. The name of Bukhara originates from the word "vihara" which means "monastery" in Sanskrit. The city was once a large commercial center on the Great Silk Road. Bukhara lies west of Samarkand and was once a center of learning

omania is a small country in Europe and even if you haven’t been there, you’ve certainly heard about Dracula’s Castle in Transylvania. The most popular vampire movies were spawned from this legend, and many visitors to Romania head to this mystical land to discover for themselves which part is true and which is myth. Halloween was born from the old Celtic Festival of Samhain. At that time, people were celebrating New Year on November 1st and the legend said that the night before, the edge between the two worlds – ours and the eternal land of dead – becomes permeable and extraordinary things can happen. Later, Halloween became a festival celebrated all over the world. It’s the evidence that we are all excited about the unknown even if we often wear a mask of skepticism. The essence of this holiday is the same all over the planet but every nation has its unique traditions to celebrate the last day of October. Romanians have their own way to spend Halloween and their belief in ghosts and other evil spirits is a part of popular mythology.

Transylvania City

Between Myth and Reality One legend says that if on the night of Halloween an unmarried woman eats a salty fish before going to sleep, a man will come to bring her a glass of water in a dream and quench her thirst. That man will be her next husband. Another Romanian legend tells that a long time ago, a young lady felt so alone in her dark room so she lit a candle in front of the mirror. While she was standing there, looking at her sad reflection, a gloomy face appeared for a second behind her. When she turned there was no one else in the room. A year later she married with the man from the mirror. As a consequence, in our days there still are unmarried girls who are trying to find out their future husband on Halloween night when they say that the future is easier Transylvania Brasov

The experts say that Transylvania is settled on one of the planet’s strongest magnetic fields that is why Romanians and tourists from all over the planet come to spend the Halloween here. This makes Transylvania the most mysterious area in the country, where esoteric and traditions come together to awaken your senses, to muddle your thinking and to offer you an unforgettable experience. Another story tells of a German family, who came for Halloween in Transylvania about 10 years ago. They were supposed to arrive at a hotel in Brasov, but as night came, it started to snow and the road became inaccessible, so they stopped at a mansion along the road. There a friendly family sheltered them overnight, served them a dinner with delicious food and told them the story of Vlad the Impaler. In the morning they woke up in the hotel room where they were supposed to stay from the very beginning. They all were shocked noticing that what happened in that night was not true , there was no friendly family, no cozy mansion, no snowfall. They were so frightened that they immediately left for home.

dozens of locations where grisly deeds have given rise to ghastly hauntings. Come with us as we explore a few of the more notorious haunts - places where spine-tingling tales of murder and mayhem will make the blood run cold.

Leap Castle, Co. Offaly While there are literally dozens of haunted houses and castles in Ireland, we've saved the best for last - Leap Castle, once owned by the O'Carrolls. According to the stories, it was built on a Druidic site. When the O’Carrolls came here they had a nasty habit of murdering people and dropping the mortal remains down a hole in the wall - an oubliette - where they promptly forgot about them. One O’Carroll chieftain murdered his own brother, a priest, for starting Mass too promptly. Hence, the top floor of the castle is called the Bloody Chapel. It was, however, lower down in the castle that “It” was seen - an Old Cross, Holly Island

Seaforth House in Co. Sligo

Seaforth House in Co. Sligo Seaforth lies in the shadow of Knocknarea Hill, on the shores of Sligo Bay. It's said that Owen Phibbs, an archaeologist, filled the house with artefacts from the Far East, Syria, and Egypt. Almost as soon as the ancient treasures were installed, unpleasant and malicious activities began to happen. A strange evil figure would be seen on the stairway at night and terrible loud crashes were heard throughout the house. Crockery and ornaments would be found smashed. On one occasion, the whole house shook. Servants would not stay and a gardener was terrified by a tall dark shadowy figure who disappeared into the sea, followed by maniacal laughter. Jesuit priests were unable to rid the place of its ghosts and it was eventually abandoned in the 1940’s. It now stands an empty shell.

Skyrne Castle, Co. Meath Nestled between the ancient Hill of Tara where many skeletons have been unearthed and the Gnoc Ghuil, ‘Hill of Weeping,’ lies Skyrne Castle. Built by the Norman knight, Adam de Feipo, in the 12th century, Skyrne is said to be haunted by several spectres that include a nun, and a tall, cloaked figure and his dog. But it is the spirit of a woman in white that gives Skyrne its notoriety. The ghost is believed to be that of Lilith Palmerston who was raped and murdered by Phelim Sellers in the 18th century; it is her ghastly shrieks that many believe can still be heard echoing through the castle in Skyrne Castle

Knockbreda - General

Friar’s Bush, Belfast Not a house or castle, but worthy of note is a dark underground tunnel connecting the Ashby and David Keir wings of Queen’s University. It’s located near Friar’s Bush, one of the city’s oldest graveyards. It’s also close to the site of a former monastic settlement that is believed to date back to the fourth century. Many academics refuse to go down the tunnel on their own, spooked by the intense, unnatural coldness. Three men once ventured down. Unknown to the first man, the other two stopped behind him, refusing to go on. The first man felt someone holding his hand but didn’t look behind him until he reached the far end, when he realised he was alone.

and that one night, the noise was so loud, he was sent to investigate. He switched on the light at the bottom of the stairs and went up. Suddenly, the light turned itself off and he realised that whatever was making the noise had gotten behind him. Somehow, he managed to get back down the stairs and never went up again. The noises continued for years afterwards, and after a skeleton was found on the grounds, the theory is that the house is haunted by someone who was murdered there.

Catacombs of Paris ,France

Although a popular tourist attraction year-round, the famous catacombs of Paris are a particularly good place to visit in honor of Halloween. The underground ossuary, which was organized in a section of the city’s vast network of underground tunnels in the 18th century, were designated as a place to store the remains from condemned cemeteries in the Paris city limits. In the late 1700s, bodies from several burial grounds in Paris were moved into the underground tunnels. The result is the mass stacking of bones you see today, with skulls and femurs lining the walls like decorations. The creepy Parisian catacombs have also inspired ghostly stories for generations. King of creepy, Edgar Allen Poe uses the Paris catacombs as a reference in his story the “Cask of Amontillado” and there have been several books written about vampires who seek refuge among the bones and dead in the catacombs. Who knows, maybe the next time you are roaming the bone filled tunnels below Paris you may just see a monster living among the dead.

5 Bhangarh Rajasthan, India In a ghost town in the Rajasthan state of India between Jaipur and Alwar City, there remain ruins from a once prosperous town that was mysteriously and abruptly abandoned. Although tranquil during the day, it is said no one dares to hang out in this ghost city after dark because, as legend has it, a curse forced the whole town to be vacated overnight. While some may scoff at this myth, even the Archaeological Survey of India has placed its office near Bhangarh close to a temple to protect it from spirits of the town and has placed a sign stating: “Staying after sunset is strictly prohibited in this area.” October 2011 3838 october 2011

There is a myth surrounding this ghost town that involves a princess and a magician who fell madly in love with her. The magician tried to use his black magic to make the princess his sexual slave, but was killed when his plan was foiled. Legend has it that as the magician died; he cursed the city and wished eternal death upon any person dwelling in the town. The following year, there was a huge battle in the town, which killed everyone involved. Since then, it has been said that anyone who dared to live in Bhangarh would have their roof collapse and would diewhich is mysterious as today all of the ruins of houses are without a roof.

Bran Castle

Transylvania, Romania

The cruel leader who was rumored to live in this castle was mostly known for his preferred method of executing his opponents which was called “bung poling,” where the person was dropped upright onto a sharpened tree trunk starting from between the legs and forcing the tree trunk through the chest or neck. It is rumored Vlad “Dracula” would impale thousands at the same time, often leaving the bodies on the stakes decaying for months. Whether Vlad actually lived in Bran Castle is uncertain, but what better place to visit on Halloween than the Dracula’s Castle, which has inspired a plethora of terrifying vampire tales. A fortress situated on the border of Transylvania and Walachia in Romania, this castle was the home of the Bram Stoker’s legendary Dracula character, which has led to persistent myths that it was once the home of Vlad Dracula, or “Vlad the Impaler,” who was a ruler in the area known for the exceedingly cruel punishments he imposed during his reign and which inspired Stoker’s famous book. 40

Rose Great 7 Hall House

Montego Bay, Jamaica

Once the home of Annie Palmer, who is also known as the Great White Witch, this old plantation home in Jamaica is said to be haunted by the witch herself, as well as the people she is said to have murdered in the home. Annie Palmer, who was the wife of a powerful sugar plantation owner, was known as a cruel and gruesome mistress who tortured and killed her slaves for the smallest infractions. The Great White Witch was also known to take her slaves to bed and then murder them when she grew tired of them, burying them in unmarked graves on the property. It is thought she also murdered her first husband, John Palmer, and avidly practiced Voodoo. It was her Voodoo practices, including sacrificing human infants, and black magic that earned Annie Palmer the reputation of the Great White Witch. Rumor has it Palmer was finally murdered to stop her cruelty. Despite efforts to entomb the witch’s body and build a grave that would prevent her from rising and roaming the grounds of the plantation, the Great White Witch continues to haunt the house to this day. According to local legend, the White Witch and her victims actively haunt the house and she has been seen wearing a green velvet dress and riding a black horse, whip in hand. She has also been heard walking the halls of the house, and cries of the babies and slaves she murdered have been heard filling the halls. Voices are reportedly sometimes heard coming from the dungeon where she tortured victims, and lights commonly are switched on and off throughout the house with no one around. If you are brave enough to explore this house, then prepare to come face to face with the ghost of the Great White Witch. 42

Himeji Castle Kobe, Japan

Thirty miles west of Kobe, Japan are the well-preserved remains of an imposing wooden castle at Himeji. The haunted Okiku’s Well, located near the Hara-kiri Maru (Suicide Gate) where people were forced to commit ritual suicide by disembowelment (defeated Japanese soldiers were often forced to commit suicide), was not dug as a source of drinking water, but rather was created as a means of washing away the blood of the suicide victims and was named after a woman who died there. In Japanese culture, ghosts take on different forms and Yuurei ghosts are those that were murdered or committed suicide. The most hauntings by Yuureis come from wronged female spirits. Okiku was a servant for a lord who lived in the castle, and she was wrongly accused of stealing one of a collection of precious plates. Okiku was tried and found guilty and was punished by being tortured, sexually assaulted and killed. Okiku’s body was thrown into the well and because of the way she died it is believed her soul could find no eternal peace. It is said Okiku haunts the well today, where in the early morning hours you can hear her screams rising from the depths of the well where her mutilated body was tossed centuries ago. So, if you find yourself in Japan this Halloween, make a trip to Himeji’s castle, camp out near Okiku’s well and wait to see if you hear the woman’s ghost screaming from below. 44 44

And the nature already serves you 4 waves to conquer. Kong’s is the highest wave with about 12 meters. The consistent speed of Money Tree Wave with its arched-wall is the second wave which is worth trying. And don’t count yourself as a surfer if you don’t try Launch Pad yet. This is the longest wave and can roll itself up as long as 2 miles. For amateur surfers just pick 20/20’s and Tiger Tracks! These small waves are positioned about 3-4 km toward the west of the beach.

Those cottages are built a few meters only from the beachside. The sand is white and there are also several granites even if as not many and big as in Tanjung Tinggi. Waves are so gentle and the water is not so deep. Swimming is not so interesting in this area. In the offshore there are two small islands; one of them can be reached by walking crossing a shallow sea. The other interesting view is several traditional fishing boats that are spread out along the offshore. www.traveladdictmagz.com

Burung Mandi Beach

The Culinaries

In East Belitung there is a beach called Burung Mandi Beach, on this beach we can find white sands like on other beaches in Belitung. But the unique is you won’t find any giant rocks of granite on this beach. This beach named Burung Mandi Beach not because there are many birds having a bath but because in northeastern of Belitung about 18 km west of Mangar town there is a mountain called burung mandi. Burung Mandi Beach is unique because there is only one beach in Belitung which has hills as its background. The

Bukit Batu was built by the first Regent of East Belitung, Basuki T Purnama in 2004. Here you can find a good restaurant with good toilet facilities.
