Fancy a spooky vacation?On our summer vacations (or holidays), we all want to feel safe, don't we?On the other hand, most of us also crave for some adrenaline every now and then – of course to different degrees.
I literally have a small heart attack when I'm in a mirror maze.Oh, Prague memories.And I wouldn't dare ride the ghost train at Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, London, guess I don't like those kinds of thrills!However, I would not call it cowardice.I love to shiver, but I prefer something less cliche.
The following are the scariest places I would like to visit in the future.Lo and behold, it's about to get scary.
1. "Death Road," Bolivia
The most dangerous road in the world: 35 miles from La Paz to Coroico.In 2006 about 300 people died there.You may again see many crosses on the road, memorials to those who lost their lives on Yungas Road.Built in the 1930s, the road is rarely wider than three meters, and traffic goes both ways.Inclement weather, tragedies in the air, and yet the road of death draws riders and cyclists to take on the deadly challenge.Difficult, Bolivia.I think rather die than … die?
#travelaware:Carefully check the entry requirements of the country you plan to visit.In the case of Bolivia, your passport will suffice if you stay there for up to 90 days.Your passport should be valid for at least six months from the date of entry into Bolivia.
2.The mountain of crosses, Lithuania
Located in northern Lithuania, it's a pilgrimage site whose origins we don't know for sure.The Hill not only contains over 100.000 crosses, but also statues of the Virgin Mary or rosaries brought to the hill by the Catholics.There is something mystical and romantic about this place, but you have to admit that just reading about it gives you goose bumps, or?
#travelaware: Familiarize yourself with the customs and traditions of your destination country before you travel, especially how to behave in a touristy place.Remember that in some countries it may be forbidden to photograph monuments that are considered cultural heritage sites.
3.Hoia Baciu Forest, Romania
The forest of Hoia Baciu is located next to one of the biggest cities in Romania, Cluj-Napoca, and is known for its paranormal phenomena.It was once called the Bermuda Triangle of Romania, with a string of disappearances and rumors of UFO sightings.Whether the supernatural things happening in Hoia Baciu are real, we will never find out; except for a few archive photos, all evidence has been lost.If you are in the mood for this kind of entertainment, this forest is definitely a place for you.
#travelaware: When abroad, always think about what you are doing and trust your instincts.Don't take any risks you wouldn't in the UK.Also, don't openly display valuables like cell phones or digital cameras, and consider using a padlock on suitcases or backpacks.
