10 Creepy Curses You Might Encounter On Vacation
Vacations are supposed to be the time for having fun and relaxation. The only bad thing about it really is the depression that hits you when you realize you get only one vacation a year. The rest, really, is all cocktails and sun and looking at the world through rose-tinted glasses. But some vacations can also turn out to be spooky and frankly quite creepy, especially if you pick a destination that is known for its haunted places. Some destinations will even send something extra home with you as they actually come with a curse. Check out the ten creepiest curses you might encounter on vacation.
Koh Hingham, Thailand
The beaches of the little island of Koh Hingham are absolutely gorgeous and are littered with black and white rocks. However, the legend has it that the rocks should under no circumstances be taken back with you when leaving the island as the stones and beaches are protected by an ancient curse cast by the god Tarutao of Koh Hingham. If you take a stone back, you are doomed forever and bad luck will follow you until you die.
Ye Olde Cross Pub’s Dirty Bottles, England
One of the most famous English vacation destinations apart from London is definitely the Alnwick Castle. The castle is seven centuries old and was even featured in Harry Potter movies. Next to the castle is a pub called Ye Olde Cross that’s been struck by a deadly curse several centuries ago. According to legend, if anyone touches the bottles that are on the wall of the pub they would get heart attack and die on the spot. The site is now sealed and the bottles can’t be touched, but the deaths during the history of the pub remain as the reminder of the curse.
