Using Paranormal Investigators to Discover Mysteries

Ghost hand: Paranormal Investigators

When it comes to investigating the paranormal there are those who believe that it can be done and those who believe that it is impossible. For those who believe that paranormal investigations can be performed, their research relies upon a number of questionable methods and pieces of equipment that are seldom recognized by the official scientific community.

Just a short flight from London (or direct flights to dozens of other European destinations) it is full of history, charm and a perfect mix of both sightseeing and relaxation. There are cathedrals, museums and of course shopping. And all extremely affordable. My first time to Mallorca, and hopefully not my last.
