After visiting London we decided to explore Stonehenge on our way to Bath. After driving more than an hour, I was excited to see this place, but I also didn’t know what to expect from this experience. When we started to get bored in the car (especially the kids) the beautiful landscape of Salisbury Plain showed up delighting our eyes. Not much later after, the monument of Stonehenge appeared. Some people will call it just a pile of rocks or a ghost from the past. But for sure, the reason we were there was to find out for ourselves what Stonehenge is.
As I think of mysterious places in California, Alcatraz Island comes to mind right away. The scene of many movies and known as “The Rock”, Alcatraz Island is a mysterious place. It is so close to shore and yet far enough. It’s interesting to read about the escape attempts that have made Alcatraz Island famous…history has not recorded any successful escape attempts. All those that have at least made it into the water have drowned on their way to the San Francisco coast. Enveloped in mystery and many times in fog, Alcatraz Island attracts the visitor.
California is not normally associated with mystery. California brings different thoughts: sun, ocean, surfing, Hollywood but nobody is immediately thinking of mystery when they hear the word California. This does not mean that there is nothing mysterious about California. Alabama Hills is one place where mystery and Hollywood converge.
What comes to your mind when you hear about Romania? Most probably: Dracula and vampires and…mystery. While Dracula is associated with the region called Transilvania, there are other areas of Romania that are quite mysterious. One of these mysterious places is called Corbii din Piatra, or Stone Ravens in English. What is so mysterious about it?
