This Saturday morning, we only got to breakfast at 8:00 am. The scrambled eggs are amazing.
After we had eaten, we went to grab my camera and went exploring the old but small town.
Our first stop was the Station Museum, which doesn’t look big, but it is with a basement as well. I must admit those times where scary.
Then the Motor Museum, which I have personally never been into so it was new for both Kieron Thwaites and I. This houses old cars, the steam train and carriages, which we got to explore these and they are really dark. Kind of spooky really.
Then after a mid morning nap we went to have lunch at the coffee shop and afterwards walked around a bit and talked Basically we went exploring the gardens. Also went to check out the duck pond and we saw baby ducks and then onto explore the hotel itself.
We went up the main flight of stairs which leads to more hotel rooms (some of these are meant to be haunted). I was actually brave enough to walk up the stairs to an attic room (pity it was locked). This room is called Katie’s card room and if you go into the room one can feel it is haunted. Apparently at night one can hear someone playing cards in the room when there is actually no one there.
We also came across this one room in the hotel which looked like it was used as a small lounge , reading room or even a parlor. But Kieron and I could feel it just didn’t feel right, it had that airy ghost feeling. So we quickly left the room in a hurry.
At around 6:00 pm we went on a bus rid in one of those old fashion buses from London. The guide/entertainer gave the history and haunting of the town and made it more entertaining.
After dinner we decided to go back to our room and ea chocolate on our balcony over looking the semi dried up river. It was windy and the trees decided to make ghostly creaking noises, so we agreed to go back inside. Since my beloved boyfriend Kieron found out the times when Rovos Rail was going to pull into the station the next morning, we at least had to be at the station at that time.
P:S: I have never seen Rovos Rail in person only in photos so it was awesome me who studied travel and tourism.
