Apologies for the short and late post today. I am fighting a bad cold and can’t take traditional medication for it, due to the pregnancy, and herbal remedies don’t seem to be working very well.

One of the best stories comes from Romania. Bram Stoker’s Dracula. The fact that it has been reworked so many times and into different forms proves that it stands the test of time.

How would you feel about visiting Dracula’s castle?

Bran Castle was the inspiration for Dracula’s Castle, even though Bram never saw the castle in person. Apparently pictures were enough to stoke (I punned! heheh) his imagination. Vlad the Impaler (inspiration for Dracula himself) was reputed to have been held prisoner here in the 15th Century.

The castle is currently up for sale, and the link in the description of the picture contains more pictures of the castle. If you had $80 million dollars (euros?) would you buy this castle? Personally, I’d rather go and visit.

Let me help you plan your trip. You can contact Jennifer Desmarais through Orleans Travel.

Sharing is awesome!
