A Haunted Holiday on 2014-02-03

After 6 months living in the cold, lifeless town of Invercargill situated at the bottom of New Zealand's South Island, a spontaneous trip to the tropical shores of Brazil with my sister seemed like a marvelous idea. She had won a holiday with her company and invited me along, much to my fiance's dis...

The Notorious Doctor G on 2013-08-26

It was July 2012 and my fiancé and I were counting down the hours until our trip to Mauritius. Having arrived 2 hours early (as is protocol for all International flights) we decided to pass time at a coffee shop in the airport and use the free wifi to check our mails one last time. I checked in on F...

Hibiscus Coast on 2013-08-19

Many a summers holidays of my childhood were spent at the seaside resort towns of the Hibiscus Coast. When my father retired in 1992, my parents bought a cottage at one of these pretty coastal villages to escape the crime and congestion of the city, with us, their 3 teenage children. Easter, Chri...

Hospital By The Sea on 2013-06-12

Working night shift in the Emergency department was always chaotic. I was born, trained at and went on to work as a registered nurse in a massive government hospital situated on the beachfront of a South African coastal city. Built in the late 1800's, upgraded in the 1940's, the once proud and pr...

Hi Griff84, yes my sister says she has seen this supposed attachment a few times over the years. Upon waking on several occasions she has been confronted with a floating black mass positioned near the end of her bed which would dissolve out of vision. It has followed her from one residence to other and the feeling is ominous. What I saw that night was translucent and I felt a curious perhaps even mischievous energy about it.

To Miracles51031, thanks, your comments have been very helpful.
Yes, my fiancé did get to meet Dr G once when we bumped into him one night & although briefly introduced, Dr G made quite an impression on him, as he did many people!
My fiancé is a skeptic of all things paranormal but he is also the one person that confirms my experience that night.

To lady-glow, apologies for my error, he was hiking from the US Canadian border across Alaska to the Bering sea.
You are also right, he certainly died doing what he enjoyed doing the most. He was a part time doctor and full time adventurer!

Hi HappySpirit and RedWolf. Dr G was an incredibly religious man, so much in fact, that he was quick to dismiss ghosts or any of the other content covered on this site. Perhaps he realized that after death its not the black and white world of heaven and hell like he believed. Having said that, he was a great guy and the world is a far sadder place without him.

Hi Trix, sorry if this post is a little late. That was a lovely story and very well written. I enjoyed the way that you described things.
Your story reminded me of my own experiences as an RN in SA. I don't think there is a single hospital that I've worked in that I haven't heard of or experienced strange things.
Thanks for sharing!

Although I'm curious to go on a tour of a Concentration camp I don't have the guts to. My great uncle was a POW in Stalag 18A in Austria during WW2 for 2 years which he described as an awful experience.
4 years ago my fiance went to Munich on business. He and some colleages went on a tour and ended up at Dachau. He doesn't believe in the paranormal, or so he says, but he felt so overwhelmed by a feeling of hopelessness that he had to leave halfway through the tour to go sit back on the tourbus.
Thanks for an interesting story.
What a fascinating story. I have heard many interesting tales regarding this old ship which makes it one of the top haunted places on my list that I'd love to visit.

Hi BattleScars, I have also emigrated and am living in New Zealand now.
I am eager to hear if your grandfather knows anything more about the Umzumbe/Hibberdene area.
I lived there from the age of 12 to 17. Back then I didn't know much about ghosts or the paranormal but maybe that was a good thing otherwise living in that house would have been unbearable.
Within 3 months my parents had put the house on the market but it took 5 years to sell. We never felt welcome there and spent most of our free time outdoors.

Thanks Fergie and LillyPieLindsay. The towns Zulu name is Umzumbe.

To BadJuuJuu and RedWolf thank you for the comments. I do believe that the feeling we were getting on the garden path was from the spirit of that maid my mother had seen. My mother described her as looking very worried and in a great hurry as though she was being pursued by someone.
She had asked our elderly neighbour if the previous owners had a servant, which they did, but she couldn't or wouldn't tell her anymore than that.
