Czech this out – Paranormal Prague

Halloween #Blogtober post 30. I don’t think I’ve mentioned this, but by the time this post is live I will have touched down on the shores of sunny Prague! Just because I’ll be out of the country, doesn’t mean I will be falling short when it comes to enjoying the Halloween festivites. It seems that Prague is a country steeped in history, and so the list of paranormal type things to do and see doesn’t fall short.  I’ve researched and researched and researched and this is what I’m hoping tomorrow will look like:

  1. McGee’s Ghost tours of Prague
    hunt-hp-asylum

    These sound insanely good, and have insanely good reviews. There are two that particularly tickle my fancy  – Underground Walk by Lamplight which takes you though an old Prison, and the Mental Asylum Graveyard Tour.
  2. Prague Ghosts and Legends Museum

    This pleas eis split into two sections. The first has a huge tome which will take you through the Spirit of Prague. The second takes you directly into the city of ghosts – the streets of old Prague.
  3. The Bone Church
    bone1
    Legend has it that a monk went mad and started building things out of human bones – this place is rumoured to have 40,000 people’s bones knocking about. Creepy.

Short and sweet because I’m off on my holidays and I’m too excited to concentrate properly. Farewell!

 

My going-straight-out-after-work-so-require-little-to-no effort Costume

Halloween #Blogtober 28. This is from Wednesday night (the 26th). We were off to a Halloween themed pub quiz and I literally had about an hour to get ready. For ease and speed I decided Witch. For a challenge and a nod to the years I spend dressed like I’d been transported from the 1940’s I decided Pin Up Witch. Obviously.

I armed myself with:
A hairband with a mini witches hat on in
A hair doughnut cut and stitched in the shape of a faux bang
My favourite hooded capeIllamasqua lipstick in Disciple
Lace up black boots
Any old back dress
and a £1 broom from Tesco
…and just hoped for the best.

The result wasn’t the worst thing I’ve ever done.

The Pumpkin King of Halloween Beers

Halloween #Blogtober 27 – BEER. I planned on this being a review of the 7 or so Halloween themed beers I could find in Morrison’s. So of course, seeing as I’m a super professional blogger I bought them all. I lined them all up. I drank them one by one and completely forgot to make notes to differentiate between any of them.

Although… One stood out to me. Brewdog’s Pumpkin King. The one on the left. I’m too lazy to actually get up and take another picture you see, so here. Have one I took for instagram.

Pumpkin King is  red/amber and packs a warm glowy 5.4%. It’s got all the pumpkin and the spice, but don’t expect some pumpkin spiced latte tasting bev’, oh no. It’s sweet in the way gingerbread is sweet. Like comforting, and warming, and screams of autumn.  I enjoyed it that much that the next day I went out to buy 4 more bottles, and I buy a bottle every time I see it. Gonna need to stock up before it disappears forever…. (Or until next year).

Make your Halloween a merry one.

Pining and pinning – Pinterest Halloween Party Food

Halloween #Blogtober 26 – Pinterest is king and I am a lowly subject. This is all super cool looking food that I would love to make myself but 1) I will be out of the country for Halloween, and 2) I’m far too lazy. Also I’m not sure I know enough people in real life to even have a party… Won’t you join me, in virtually living vicariously through Chez Pinterest?
