Draculas Castle

Do you believe in the legend of Dracula?


The #flight seemed to last an age because we were caught in so much turbulence, but when I found myself on top of a hill in #Transylvania it definitely seemed worth it.  I was surrounded by lush green on the hilltop looking down on pretty little brown houses.  Hearing the guide I turned to find myself facing a giant ominous building that belonged to #Dracula. I raised my gaze up over the turrets lining the top and stood in awe; even if this was a #fairy tale it was a great building to continue the mystery.


Inside it was a lot like any other grand house I’d looked at during my week in #Romania, well, all except for one room.  It was closed off to the public and the guide wouldn’t say why.  Nosily I stretched up to stare through the window and saw huge chairs covered in cobwebs, giant spindly machines half shrouded by cloth, lines of glass bottles with cork tops and a huge gilded mirror.  It looked like a secret lair of a #vampiric #legend and it was wonderfully creepy.  That house gave me the right amount of fear and left me hoping that #Dracula did live there, even just for a little while...
