I've written articles from haunted prisons (which are my absolute favorite thing to talk about) to haunted hospitals and haunted hotels. But this time I'm focusing around the top haunted hotels throughout the WORLD. We aren't in the USA anymore Toto.

This time we are going to look into some of the famous haunted hotels throughout the world.




1. Castle Leslie, County Monaghan, Ireland

Located in County Monaghan Ireland, the Castle Leslie estate has hosted some of the most famous people. The estate was purchased in the 1600s, and since then been passed on from generation to generation within the family. But, unlike most places that have menacing spirits roaming its quarters, the spirits within Castle Leslie seem to be more chill as we like to say.

The most popular story involves the haunting in the Red Room by one of the former inhabitants- Norman Leslie who died in battle during World War I. Visitors have claimed to hear shuffling paper and someone shushing guests who make to much noise.

The Mauve Room is said to be haunted by Lady Constance Leslie. Supposedly, her ghost visited someone who was on her deathbed and the nurse happened to saw and didn't think anything of it until she saw a portrait of Constance Leslie the next day. Some say she still visits the room to levitate the bed.

Other popular hauntings of the Castle included a monk, a child whimpering and the estate bells ringing on their own and seeing apparitions throughout the Castle.

2. Langham Hotel, London, England

Located in London, the Langham Hotel is the most haunted hotel in London which makes it a favorite for paranormal investigators and visitors. The hotel was built in 1865 and was the Englands "first grand" hotel. It even includes the most haunted hotel room in London, room 333.

There was a doctor who murdered his wife then killed himself while on their honeymoon. And BBC announcer James Alexander spotted the man in 1973. The figure looks like a Victorian gentlemen wearing a cloak but has blank, staring eyes. The man only makes appearances in October.

Then there was the man who jumped at of a fourth-floor window. Observed more in the early hours of the morning, the man supposedly walks through the doors and ends up most of the time in room 333.

Also, a ghost in room 333 who tips guests out of the bed while sleeping and one time an overnight guest felt the bed being shook and proceeded to flee the hotel during the middle might.

There have also been reports of strange noises, and a ghost butler still trying to serve guests on the third floor along with a ghost who has a gaping wound on his face who wanders the halls.

3. Dauphine Orleans Hotel, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

Located in the French Quarter if New Orleans, the Dauphine Orleans hotel has rooms located on both sides of the street which includes cottages or slightly bigger rooms than the main hotel. The hotel has a rich history that leads up to the hauntings, but overall, the actual hotel opened in 1969.

A popular hotspot of the hotel includes May Bailey's where there is the story of the Phantom Bride. May Bailey who was once of the owner had a younger sister Millie who wanted more than a place that keeps the business afloat. Millie escaped in 1861 and met a Confederate soldier but her happy ending was short-lived.

On the day of her wedding, her soon-to-be-husband was shot dead due to gambling. Guests have spotted Millie's ghost in her hand-sewn lace wedding dress standing forlornly hoping her one true love returns to her. There has also been a Confederate soldier spotted in uniform.

Could this figure be Millie's long lost love?

4. Tulloch Castle Hotel, Dingwall, Scotland

Dating back to the 12th century, the Tulloch Castle Hotel has been a paranormal favorite. The castle's south-west corner and tower is the only part of the original building from 1507 that still remains intact.

People who investigated or stayed overnight have seen balls of lights, orbs, cold patches or spots of air felt throughout the hotel, noises such as clicks, bangs, and thuds throughout the hotel with no explanation from where they came from or who made them.

But the most famous ghost of the hotel is the Green lady who has been captured on film. Supposedly, the girl walked in on her father having an affair, fled the castle but fell down the stairs and was killed. Some guests have said to seen her or felt her presence.

Other guests have felt extreme levels of energy at times, being awoken in the early hours feeling someone or thing pressing down on their chests.

5. Fort Garry Hotel, Winnipeg, Canada

Fort Garry Hotel has housed many guests who have shared their experience of ghouls during their stay, but the most famous stories come from the famous room 202. A woman who committed suicide in the room after hearing her husband died in a car accident. She hung herself in the closet of the hotel room.

The women of 202 even haunts the hotel lounge where she is often crying in the corner. The staff has also reported seeing a woman dressed in a room wandering throughout the hallways. Other guests have even reported seeing figures standing at the foot of their beds such as a man or a women wearing a ball gown.

In 1989, a hotel employee was cleaning the kitchen and around 4 a.m. went back to the stairway but ended up hearing noises coming from the locked dining room. He went to unlock the door and saw a figure of a man sitting at one of the tables. He ran to get another employee to show them what he saw but upon returning, the figure had vanished from the dining room.

What Your Hogwarts House Says About You

Get yourself sorted and find out where you belong in the world of witchcraft and wizardry.

Sorting at Hogwarts is a big deal. Being sorted into a house is essentially being placed into a family while you are away from home learning about witchcraft and wizardry. Your house is made up of the people you will live with, go to classes with, play Quidditch with and everything in between. You basically spend 24/7 with them. Your Hogwarts house is your home away from home.

When you get sorted into a house, it is based on your personality traits. The people in your house are typically like-minded people who display the same characteristics as you.

When you’re a first year at Hogwarts, the minute you set foot in the castle you are swept into the Great Hall to have the ancient Sorting Hat placed on your head. This Sorting Hat decides which “family” you’ll be spending your seven years with.

For some, it is very obvious which house they will be in, due to certain personality traits they possess. For others, they may exemplify traits that fit a multitude of houses and are uncertain where they may end up.

To find out where you belong, you can take the official "Harry Potter" Sorting Hat quiz at Pottermore.com. For all you muggles out there, these are the characteristics that the houses possess and what your house says about you:

Gryffindor: The house of the brave, loyal, courageous, adventurous, daring and chivalrous. Those who stand up for others are typically Gryffindors. Brave-hearted is the most well-known Gryffindor characteristic, and Gryffindors are also known for having a lot of nerve.

Gryffindors are people who hold a multitude of qualities alongside the ones listed, making them a very well-rounded house. People who are Gryffindors are often people who could fit nicely into another house but choose to tell the sorting hat they want Gryffindor (there's that bravery). "Do what is right" is the motto Gryffindors go by.

Being a Gryffindor means that you're probably the adventurous and courageous friend, and you are usually known for doing what is right.

Ravenclaw: The house is known for their wisdom, intelligence, creativity, cleverness and knowledge. Those who value brains over brawn can be found here. Ravenclaws often tend to be quite quirky as well. "Do what is wise" is the motto they strive to follow.

Though Ravenclaws can be know-it-alls sometimes, they most likely do know what the wisest decision is.

If you are known for being the quirky friend, the smartest in the group or just great at making wise decisions, you're definitely a Ravenclaw.

Hufflepuff: This house values hard work, dedication, fair play, patience, and loyalty. Hufflepuff’s are known for being just and true. "Do what is nice" is their motto.

Hufflepuff is known as the “nice house” and believes strongly in sparing peoples feelings and being kind. This is not to say that Hufflepuffs aren't smart or courageous. Hufflepuffs just enjoy making others happy and tend to be more patient towards people.

If you ever find that you are too nice for your own good and cannot bear to hurt someone’s feelings, congratulations, you are a Hufflepuff.

Slytherin: This is the house of the cunning, prideful, resourceful, ambitious, intelligent, and determined. Slytherin's love to be in charge and crave leadership. "Do what is necessary" is the motto of this house.

Slytherin is a fairly well-rounded house, similar to the other houses. They are loyal to those that are loyal to them just as Gryffindors are and are intelligent as Ravenclaws.

Slytherin house as a whole is not evil, despite how many dark wizards come out of this house. That is merely based on the choices of those wizards (so if your friend is a Slytherin, don’t judge, it doesn’t mean they are mean people). Slytherins do, however, have a tendency to be arrogant or prideful. This is most likely due to the fact that everyone in Slytherin is exceedingly proud to be there.

What Hogwarts house you’re in says a lot about the person you are, the traits you possess and how you may act in some situations. But in the end, your house is really just your home that is always there for you. Always.

6 Things I Never Miss To Have In My Handbag

My handbag is a 'mini me' and I feel totally clueless without it

153
views

I take my handbag everywhere and carried everything at times even junk, worn out receipts, tickets, coupons for a long time. Thought it would be the right time to come to terms with it. I have started organizing or should I say customize my shoulder companion with things that are needed every day for me so that I could share it with you peeps. I really like my handbag that I became a sucker for naming it and you can see it why.

My Nutcracker Case

It might seem different but that is how I like to call my cute little box with nuts. I fill them up with almonds, pistachios, cashews, walnut and dried fruits and sorts if I go out. My nutcracker case helps me with my hunger pangs and snacking habit. I can munch them on when I have to skip my eating during my studies or if I have some work or travel. It is just a simple healthy alternative I do instead of grabbing fries or burgers. I've been taking healthy choices lately and this idea is helping me a lot. Try it!

My Perfume

I literally cannot survive without my perfume. It keeps me going and it really helps me on the go. My perfume is like a part of me so I am very choosy about it. So that said, I always keep my perfume in my handbag. How do I choose my perfume? My nose has a sharp sensitivity over the fragrances. So it says, what is the best perfume for women.

My Tech Space

I use to put up a fight every time with my handbag in the name of searching for my charger and headphones. So I gave it a thought. My favorite clear pouch came to the rescue and I gave it a name, my Tech Space. I carry my two headphones, my power bank, pen drives, travel phone charger, memory cards, and USB connector within the Tech space!

Money Banks

Well you would have figured it out by now. Yes, it's my wallet . Something I would never miss to have. I do have a separate small coin pouch. I am not a big wallet person so I always prefer a small comfortable wallet with many racks where I put my cards and ready-cash. I don't just put my wallet in my bag; I specifically have them in a zipped compartment. Once I had a bad experience when I left my wallet in the room due to 'bag cleaning'. So from then on, I started to put my wallet in a separate zipped compartment, so that it remains safe even when I occasionally take out the bag.

My Journal

I am still an old school. I will better remember the details when I manually write it down. My journal is also my 'To-Do list' so I pretty much use it for everything. I carry a fountain pen with me which I use, so pretty much I am a very old school indeed.

Vanity

I stash all my skin essentials in this pouch. I will have a small bottle of my daily-facewash, a pack of facial tissues, my moisturizer, a concealer, small mirror and a light lip shade, overall a quick makeup fix. I have a side compartment in my vanity pouch where I keep my sanitary needs. I need my lip balm very often, so I usually put it the bag so every time I don't have to open the pouch.

When you ask me, my bag is more like a non-talking companion who literally has a small version of my room in it. What about yours?
