As you know from before, I'm from Sweden, but this story takes place in Denmark.
I recently moved to Denmark (my fiancé is Danish) in to this really gorgeous apartment, which is located in a building from 1560's. It's a little crooked. If I let go with my feet of the floor sitting in the computer chair, it rolls a bit. Anyway, I know that there's a ghost here. First night here I was alone (my fiancé working a late night shift). I was spending my lonely hours unpacking and watching TV. I was lying on the couch, with my back turned against the dining room, when I got this feeling of being watched. I felt it so strongly I thought my fiancé had come home early and now where sneaking on me. I turned around expecting to see him standing in the doorway. What I saw, was a tall shadow leaning into the living room, and it appeared to watch me. A split second later he/she leaned back into the dining room again. I ran up and checked the dining room, but the shadow was gone. Needless to say, I ran around the whole apartment lighting every lamp I could find.
Later the same night, I took a bath, and while I was lying there, it sounded like someone walked in circles in the living room (some of the floorboards squeak a lot when you walk on them). Sure, it's a very old house, but the floorboards make a really distinct sound when trampled on.
I haven't really encountered anything else after that. I believe that the ghost here was curious of the new ones moving in, and checked if we were "ok".
So what do you guys think; was the ghost just curious? I can't think of another explanation why it would show itself only the first evening and then never again.
As some posters have already said, it kind of just sounds like the being was checking out the new movers especially since you didn't feel frightened. I wonder if you still live there?
I just read your experience at the hotel. All I can say is "Blimey!"
