I came to Brasov with one goal in mind: partake in Bran Castle’s annual Halloween party. Halloween isn’t big in Europe at all, but the holiday is growing. Bran Castle takes it’s Dracula haunting corridors and transforms it into a beautiful and fun event. This year they offered three different ticket options: a Halloween night tour, a Halloween after party, and Halloween dining experience like no other. Prices significantly increased from the previous years with the more recent tourist traction, but this didn’t stop me. I was determined to scratch this off my bucket list.

A Monday in London

If there is one thing that you should know about me is that I hate having to travel fast. I’m a lazy adventurer. People tell me their travel plans and it’s always two days here and then two days there. While that’s not a bad way to spend your vacation, I just enjoy being lazy and not feeling rushed.

However, there often comes times when you land a 17-hour layover in the Gatwick airport (UK) and you have nothing better else to do but spend 7 of those hours exploring a new city.

Magic Kingdom Entertainment

My friends and I were standing in line to meet Anna and Elsa at Princess Fairy Tale Hall. After waiting in the line for an hour, it was our turn to finally step into a new room and wait some more!

Everyone in the room was taken aback by her response. Elsa tried to ask the question again, but the girl was persistent on brushing her teeth. We died with laughter.

I remember hearing a story about a sixty-year old grandma walking into the gates of Magic Kingdom and breaking down crying. She had made it. After years and years of saving, she finally was able to go to Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. Snow White happened to see this woman crying and comforted her. That is what makes this park truly magical.
