Lindesnes Lighthouse, Norway - ships sinkings, legends and ghosts. Since the Middle Ages, Lindesnes, or “headland”, as the spot was called, has been one of the most important naviagation landmarks for ships for sailing between the North and Baltic Seas. Once sailors caught sight of this distinctive landmark they could easily plan the rest of their voyage along the coast. However, the waters around Lindesnes were also feared - with good reason. The Skagerrak and North Sea meet here, throwing up strong currents and winds that make the waters treacherous, causing many ships to run aground. Indeed, the stretch between Lindesnes and Lista has been dubbed by historians as a ships´ graveyard. Erected in 1655, Lindesnes Lighthouse is Norway’s oldest lighthouse. Located on the southernmost tip of the Norwegian mainland on the peninsula Neset. It`s situated 1,564.6 miles (2,518 kilometes) from the extreme northern end of Norway, North Cape. The lighthouse is 17.6 yards (16.1 meters) tall and emits a quick white flash every 20 seconds. A magnificent sight in the dark!

Exploration of Dracula' s chamber - the dark legend of the Buda Castle Labyrinth in Budapest, Hungary. The labyrinth has functioned both a prison and as a torture chamber. In the 15th century, its darkest chamber held its most infamous prisonar — Vlad Tepes, better known as “Dracula" from Romania. The Labyrinth is situated in the complex of caves and cellars beneath Castle Hill. Archaeological evidence points to inhabitants living down the caves from pre-history right up to the Middle Ages, but apart from offering shelter, these caves hold a darker history in the years that followed. The story about Dracula is one of the dark stories. Furthermore the underground labyrinth system has served as a large shelter and hospital during World War II, but the Turks also used it back in the 16th century, mainly for military purposes.

Bucharest, Romania - The mystery behind the Great Communist Bank Robbery. In 1959 it was a robbery at the Romanian National Bank in Bucharest. No one expected a bank robbery behind the Iron Curtain, but it was carried out by a gang of six members of the Communist state - against all odds. No one know exactly knows to this day why the robbers did it, but the most peculiar events happened afterwards, or was it not a bank robbery at all?

Brussels - A fun weekend in the EU capital! Here I felt really international soaking up the city`s diplomatic atmosphere from 2nd to 4th November 2012. The capital Brussels in Belgium is well known for the headquarters of the European Union, and the European Parliament, for its beautiful architecture, delicious chocolate, the Belgian waffle, and a huge number of beer brands. No one take the beer more seriously than the Belgians.
