No better way to spend Valentineâ€™s day than staying in a haunted hotel. After taking a 90min ghost tour, one that happens to have a stop near your room, you are expected to enjoy your dinner and get a good nights sleep. Well, that didnâ€™t quite happen. I am still deciding if I really heard the sound of turn of the century nannies moving their steam trunks across the floors in the rooms above us. No kidding. Iâ€™m not 100% sure, but I am about 90% sure that is what I experienced.

Tip: When working at night, especially cold nights, I have found that using mountain bike gloves does a good job of keeping my hands warm while still retaining their dexterity.
