Inspired by movies – Haunted or not?

By | 7 Comments

Residual Residence was made in Bredene. The director of the movie didn’t have to look very far for a suitable location for his haunted house movie. He simply used the house where his grand-parents used to live. It is abandoned now, but his family still takes care of it. I found it a bit bizarre; the house is certainly not…

We were missing in action half of the weekend, thanks to a stupid iPod and two very stubborn PC’s. I am happy to announce that The Viking and I won this epic and exhausting battle.

Inspired by movies – The Strangers Outside: What is that building?

When I was a child, my parents were often annoyed by my questions and my curiosity. I always told them that if you are not curious, you don’t know anything! I was very curious about the big building with the war memorial that was surrounded by the holiday cottages. It was clear it had something to do with World War…

Inspired by movies – The Strangers Outside: Where Avalon dies

By | 7 Comments

One of Vanessa Morgan’s books, The Strangers Outside, has been turned into a movie. If you want to know what the book is about, it’s better to read my previous post again, because it contains a short synopsis of the book. The name Avalon is actually the name of Vanessa’s beloved cat. He makes a brief appearance in the movie, but…

Inspired by movies – The Golem: A visit to the Jewish Quarter of Prague

By | 4 Comments

The evening before The Viking and I visited Prague, I decided to have a look at our travel guide. We had agreed that The Viking would show me around in the city, but a little bit of extra research doesn’t hurt, does it? That’s how I discovered that there was some truth in this legend about the Golem of Prague.…
