For all the writing I do, a read a lot as well. I mean a lot. Ever since I learned how, I read anything and everything that comes my way. It’s a great way to learn about other parts of the world or other perspectives of your own home.
I came across some interesting things the past couple weeks and I want to share them with you.
It’s that time of year… the spookiest time of the year. Here’s a link roundup of some excellent articles and listicles to get your creep on.
→ Creepiest Urban Legend in Every State via Thrillist
This extensive list makes me want to watch The Mothman Prophecies and to not visit a graveyard, ever. Have you ever heard of the one listed for your state?
→ Get to Know your Japanese Bathroom Ghosts via Atlas Obscura
Japan produces some really scary films like Ringu, and has a very deep, historic tradition of spiritual folklore. I found this article so interesting, especially the hand drawn artwork. Atlas Obscura never fails to provide fascinating offbeat articles.
→ The 20 Most Haunted Places on Earth via Fodors Travel Guide
This list makes it evident that wherever you are in this wide world, there are sure to be disgruntled ghouls right over your shoulder. Reassuring!
→ A Living Ghost Town: Randsburg, California via Noelle Across the Pond
If you are looking for the keyword “ghost” but don’t want nightmares, check out Noelle’s trip to an old Wild West mining town (population: 96!) outside Bakersfield, CA.
Hope you enjoyed the roundup. Don’t forget you can follow The Voyageer as well so you don’t miss anything 🙂
