  1. great photos, and making them black and white added to the effect. It looks like it is the perfect place to visit at Halloween. I can’t remember if you already wrote about the scariest house you’ve ever seen; if not, I’d be curious as to what made it so scary…

    1. Well the scariest house I personally have ever seen is that one right up there. In Sighisoara, Transylvania. The moment I saw it. In all my life in all my travels I have never seen such a spooky house. Just to look at. I mean look at it. It’s very unusual, cool, old, quaint and definitely spooky! It’s certainly not a house you”d normally stumble upon.

      I think its known as “The Shoemakers Tower” or “The Cobblers Tower”. And yes I saw something curious there… But I expect theres a logical explanation. 🤔
