8:33 am
this is not. the majority of st martin's population are descended from african slaves and dutch colonialists added to the mix are the french who've been sharing the island's ninety square kilometers with the dutch since sixteen forty eight and . came here for salt because they needed salt for their herring the tree salt was very important in the preservation of foods and we were a goldmine of salt and the french also needed their own stores of salt so we have a salt on the front side of salt on a dutch side they bought split in half in the side to live peacefully. from the dutch side to the french side the border is barely visible even from the air the somewhat larger french side it's called some nocturnal and unlike cent margin a real part of the european union. that baker and

8:36 am
your palate traditional british roast beef and yorkshire pudding are available right on the beach. pub owner claire lynch came to the island with her parents over thirty years ago. the way that we serve our food is well it's almost like you eating at grandma's house that you saw how the beef came out it's just we want you to be fall into place like grandma beating up play a food you know. british beef dutch beer and permission style that gets all enjoyed under the caribbean sun. another unique place to put on your bucket list of travel is brand castle in romania it was built in thirteen seventy eight on the eastern border of the transylvania region and served as a fortress and customs post now it was also the residence of the last king and queen of romania but most notably brand castle was made famous by the irish writer
8:37 am
bram stoker in his novel dracula i recently went on a discovery tour in romania to find out how much of the dracula story is based on truth. this is brand council in romania otherwise known as dracula's castle it's one of romania's major landmarks and tourist destinations located in the small town of bran some two hundred kilometers north of the capital bucharest people flock here from all over the world to catch a glimpse into the gruesome world of vampires. after a very long journey i have finally arrived at brighton castle here in romania and this place boasts six hundred forty years of history but it is most well known as the home of count. the blood sucking count of transylvania now although i know this story is based on fiction i have come well prepared i have
8:38 am
my garlic to ward off any potential spirits and vampires and have my rosary just in case part let's discover this castle says true. when i go on in there's any tax penalty that i think of. as i enter i wonder if count dracula ever invited his victims to dine here. so as to not tell me how much of the tracks of the story is actually true and related to this castle well you know the lads and there is a small amount of through well dropped out as a story folk out there he really existed he was the prince all by off paid out and not of that it was either no for his bloody care and for his habit of him paid so you see he really existed and brown still the irish novelist at the golden hour
8:39 am
dr heard about this story from hungary and teach a friend of his so he took our princes story enter. made sense of the one of the famous then pi but in fact stoker never visited romania or brand council his book is based on a description of the castle and in illustration of vailable to him at the time but what about vlad the impaler was he ever here during his reign of terror the council does indeed have examples of medieval torture methods used back then so just how know what is this going to hurt the version from that. this is one of the first mechanized torture instruments they were used on suspected witches thieves traitors and the like. you have to make good use this moment is so so you know that you don't want to do
8:40 am
that the real dracula used torture to secure loyalty from his subjects one of his favorite methods for getting rid of his enemies was to impale them that means and use their real drop of blood. and let us say about him is that for us for that i mean people he's a hero and we are still waiting for him to come back rumor has it he was only imprisoned in bran castle for a short time flat dracula actually ranged from. one hundred kilometers south of ground this is where the ruins of his quarter brocaded not far from here in fourteen fifty nine he infamously had several hundred enemies impaled in what is now known as the sunday feast. or worse if we were here. it was six years she lived here and. you can see
8:41 am
there were a circus but it's more fiction it's grand council and the story of dracula the vampire that seemed to interest tourists the most. do you think it's. kerry here it's a bit scary especially the torture. of it that's the most scary thing that you discovered and it goes it's everlasting popularity to bram stoker. so my tour of bring castle is coming to an end and my impression of this place is that it's really just full of history it's really not that scary although i don't think i would want to be here after dark and just in case there are any evil spirits to ward off i will keep this garlic necklace clothes that they had but it's time to say provided now from dracula's castle. and i make my way out of bran before it gets dark when the vampires begin their nightly t.v. . and you can see i made it back very helpfully
8:42 am
art a great way to see europe is by train and currently fifteen thousand young people are doing this free of charge they all took part in a special draw to qualify for the free tickets for the project was the idea of two activists from berlin since two thousand and fifteen they've been lobbying politicians to issue all eighteen year olds free travel to promote international understanding we accompanied the young scot on the first stage of his interrelate trip. traveling to prague by train. student aden gibson from edinburgh has embarked on an intra let venture cross europe. he's fascinated by prague stunning old town and of course no visit to the czech capital is complete without seeing the famous fourteenth century charles bridge.

8:46 am
a cold beer. this is after all the home country of the period. after two days in prague it's time for aden gibson to move on in trail could be described as a kind of speed dating the hero you've barely gotten to know place and you're confronted with another stranger. and quite often you travel alone which is just what eighteen year old aiden bonds it really means so many. their sole travelers. actually made maybe make some good friends over the way they can actually have a very good time traveling solo so i would recommend. they make stops for eight in vienna budapest and. he'll visit for european countries in two weeks and take lots of fresh impressions home to edinburgh. and you can follow his travels on our instagram site ok this is he is the mother of all invention but for you tube or
