Welcome to the Haunted Travel blog carnival
I’m pleased to present a blog carnival focused on paranormal travel and tourism. Have you ever stayed in a haunted hotel or motel? Have you ever driven out of your way to check out the site of an infamous ghost story or joined a ghost hunting session? If so, click on over to the Haunted Travel carnival submission form and share your eerie tale with us!
Our first edition features the following six tales of ghostly travel:
“Ninety per cent of our hotel staff is too frightened to work on this floor,” he said as the elevator doors opened on the tenth floor of the Saint Anthony Hotel. With a mischievous smirk, he led us out of the elevator and down the corridor to room 1080 which is (according to the staff) THE most haunted room of the hotel. I was too busy taking pictures to notice that I was shaking so hard my knees were knocking together. The halls of the hotel look like something right out of the movie “The Shining.”
“So, is the Seven Sisters Inn haunted? You can find out for yourself. The Purple House has been reopened, remaining a bed and breakfast.”
3. Courtney Mroch presents 7 Haunts to Jaunt between Nashville & Memphis, Tennessee posted at Haunt Jaunts, saying,
“Park officials often deny any reports of the paranormal, but rumors abound about phantom drumming, gunshots, and marching, as well as rumors of a pond [which] some claim on occasion turns blood red…”
“Common wisdom says that children and old people are the most sensitive to ghosts. A couple from Pensacola had a few stories for me the other day, but the stories weren’t the most interesting part.”
“The other night, I thought I heard someone climbing the stairs over and over, up and down, accompanied by the sound of change jingling from a pocket…
The noise stopped, but I still had to get up and investigate.”
“What makes this haunted history tour fun is not so much the subject matter, but the fact that Shelly is a masterful storyteller. That lady can sure spin a yarn! Shelly could have led us on a tour of a thimble factory and we still would have clung to every word.”
That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of haunted travel using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.
