‘Teufelstritt or the Devil’s Footprint’ -Munich Frauenkirche. The twin towers of Munich’s Cathedral are the signature of the city. Standing at 99 metres tall to meet archaic city laws that nothing within the city limits can exceed 100 metres in height. Yet few know of the Devil’s Footprint 👣 at the entrance to the church. According to legend, the builder made a pact with the Devil to for nd the church in exchange there would be no windows. Strangely if you stand where the Devils footprint you cannot see a single window as the pillars hide it. The Devil was furious and stormed out leaving behind a furious wind that blows to this day through the Cathedral whenever the Main doors are open. Of course like everything Devil’s Prayer, the Cathedral was badly damaged during the bombings in WWII but the Devil’s Footprint was untouched. #munich #germany #cathedral #devilsprayer #devil #bestseller #amwriting #authorsofinstagram #travelblogger #wanderlust #legends #devil #cold #bavaria #passionpassport #architecturephotography

‘Near Andrematt, Switzerland’. The Schollenen Gorge near Andrematt has Switzerland’s most famous Devil’s Bridge -Teufelsbrucke which was built around the same time The Devils Bible was written. According to legend, the Devil was tricked after building this impossible bridge and so he hauled a large rock to destroy it. There are many versions of this story but down below the bridge a 220 tonne of granite rests, known as Teufelsstein or Devil’s Stone. #andermatt #devilsbridge #devilsprayer #switzerland #bestseller #travelblogger #wanderlust #legend #passionpassport #bookstagram @writeplacepub

‘St George slays the Dragon’ St Vitus Cathedral, Prague Castle. The dragon has symbolised the Devil in many cultures from China to Western Europe, but none so prominent or popular as the legend of St George. Did fire breathing 🐉 really exist and why did the Tui Bri Tu symbolise the coming of the Devil with a dragon. #prague #czechrepublic #praguecastle #dragons #prophecy #architecturephotography #wanderlust #bestseller #amwriting #passionpassport #pictureoftheday #bookstagram #stgeorge #devilsprayer #devil #travelporn #travelblogger

‘Asen’s Fortress- The Church of the Holy Mother of God’. Nestled in the Rhodope Mountains perched on the top of an almost vertical cliff (See Image 2) is the Church. It is all that is left of the 2 hectare fort which once lived here. Not a stone remains yet the church alien to Bulgarian architecture stands untouched. That is except for the murals on the ancient walls. The eyes of each of the saints have been gouged out. A punishment reserved in those days for treason. What did they see here? Was it treason against God? And why did the Turks who removed every trace of the once impregnable fortress leave the church untouched. But that is the norm for all monuments which have once housed or held ‘The Devil’s Prayer’. Messing with another man’s God seems acceptable but who is game to mess with that which belongs to The Devil. #devilsprayer #asensfortress #bulgaria #history #devil #horror #church #wanderlust #bookstagram #bestseller #travelporn #travelblogger #pictureoftheday #lost #mystery

‘Marine Drive- Mumbai’. A finger stretches out into the sea to form South Mumbai and the centre of the city. The land and sea breeze cleanse the pollution metronomically fighting hard to match the ever growing vehicle population. Then each July the rains come and wash away the sins and millions of particulates into the ever forgiving Arabian Sea. But maximum city Mumbai was not built for 22 million plus people. Our forefathers joined the seven island and in 1912, the population of Greater Mumbai then Bombay crossed 1 million. But that was 100 years ago. With a growth rate of 2.5 million in the last 5 years increasing now at over 1000 persons each day, something has got to give. But yet the growth continues -faster and more frenetic each day. #mumbai #india #population #amwriting #bookporn #marinedrive #wanderlust #bookstagram #travelblogger #passionpassport #bombay #authorsofinstagram #crosswordbookstores #devilsprayer

‘The lonely lighthouse of Byron’ - the Eastern most point of Australia. Much of The Devil’s Prayer is located in the beautiful Gold Coast. Byron Bay is the heart of Australia’s Bohemia, where free spirits roam. #byronbay #australia #goldcoast #devilsprayer #wanderlust #travelphotography #travelblogger #bookstagram #amwriting #lighthouse #bookporn

‘The narrow shopping streets of Sorrento’. Devoid of the bustle of tourists in the early morning. Sorrento is the Gateway to the Amalfi Coast. Sorrento is indissolubly linked to the myth of the three Sirens who lured sailors to the rocks until they drowned. Perhaps the origin of mermaids came from this ancient city. #travelphotography #sorrento #italy #travelblogger #wanderlust #sirens #mermaid #sailors #devilsprayer #passionpassport #amwriting #bookstagram #bestseller #author

‘Sun rays filter through clouds on the Gold Coast Hinterland’ shot from Surfers Paradise with the Nerang River and the mountain range which feature in The Devils Prayer. #surfersparadise #australia #nerang #springbrooknationalpark #amwriting #bestseller #travelporn #wanderlust #devilsprayer #sunset #passionpassport #travelphotography #travelblogger #authorsofinstagram #bookphotography

‘The Baldachin of St Peters’ Vatican City. Placed directly above the tomb of St Peter, the altar in the Vatican is placed at the crossing of the Latin Cross unlike other altars worldwide placed at the top. The altar made by Bernini is held up by four twenty metre high bronze pillars representing pillars of the Solomon Temple. Four marble plinths support the base of the columns and the two outer sides have the Barberini coat of arms on shields. Each shield is supported by a woman’s head at the top and a satyr at the bottom. The shield are identical except that the face of the woman changes depicting child birth and above the 8th shield, the female face is replaced by a winged child. There are several explanations but perhaps some clue lies in the satyr who remains unchanged. Does it represent the birth of the child of the Devil? #vatican #stpetersbasilica #devil #baldachin #church #devilsprayer #passionpassport #travelphotography #rome #italy #amwriting #travelporn #wanderlust #occult #religion

‘Lake Mckenzie’ - Fraser Island, Australia. it’s waters are so clear, probably due to natural levels of acidity it has low levels of aquatic life. Fraser Island is the largest sand island in the world and until as recently as 1970, it was mined for sand, rutile and other heavy minerals. Australian Environmental Law owes its birth to the Commonwealth Inquiry into sand mining on Fraser and in 1977, it was banned. Existing mining leases issued by the State were extinguished. Perhaps we would have lost Lake Macquarie whose sands are almost pure silica. Believed to have been formed 750,000 years it could have been the casualty of a bucket wheel excavator. #fraserisland #lake #environment #environmentprotection #bookstagram #amwriting #australia #travelblogger #travelphotography #travelporn #passionpassport #beach #mining #devilsprayer

‘Strasbourg Cathedral’. With the Pillar of Angels depicting the Last Judgement, which is known to generate strange air currents at its base due to a legend the the devil is trapped within. Outside the courtyard has a sculpture of the devil surrounded by satanic script. It is said some religious monument was on this site probably from before the time of Christ. The Cathedral built during the time of The Devil’s Prayer in the 13th Century was visited by Hitler in 1940. The stain glass seen here was removed in 74 cases and stored in the salt mines of Heilbronn which features in the film Monument Man. #strasbourg #france #stainedglass #wanderlust #hitler #passionpassport #devilsprayer #amwriting #travelblogger #devil #bookstagram #travelporn #pictureoftheday #mystery #film

‘Hellbrun Palace - Salzburg’. From the city which gave the world the divine music of Mozart. If Giotto painted Heaven and Hell, as though he had visited it, Mozart’s Don Giovanni is the other end of the spectrum of his divine music - the most hauntingly mesmeric journey into Hell. #music #hellbrunn #wanderlust #salzburg #austria #travelblogger #mozart #passionpassport #devilsprayer @crosswordbookstores #travelporn #bookstagram #amwriting #dongiovanni

‘St Bartholemew Milan Cathedral’ - one of the strangest and most famous statues in Milan Cathedral. St Bart was skinned alive and what he carries is. It a robe but his skin and he carries a skull behind his back and a strange book of course. The sculptor signs in the most unusual way confirming it is not the work of Praxalis but some random called Marcus Agate. It just does not belong here yet it is one of the most striking sculptures in the world. #milano #italy #wanderlust #church #sculpture #passionpassport #mystery #conspiracy #devilsprayer #travelblogger #travelphotography #horror #bookstagram

‘The Mongol Bible in Assisi Italy’. Amongst the strangest paintings in the world is one in the Upper Basilica of St Francis. St Jerome reading a bible written in Phagsa mongol script. He wears the red robes of a Cardinal or was it of the Red Monks of the Cardinal of Death Arnaud Amalric. The Vulgate Bible which was St Jerome’s preferred version did not include the Acts or the Book of Revelation- just like the Devil’s Bible (currently housed in The National Library of Sweden). The Devil’s Prayer documents the Unholy Alliance between the Mongols and the Papal Legate Arnaud Amalric. If you look closer, you will see it. #wanderlust #mystery #assisi #italy #church #mongolia #bible #devilsprayer #travelblogger #travelphotography #bookstagram #painting #art

‘Inside the Eiffel Tower’ Life is all about perspective and timing. In your mind’s eye certain image will forever be indelibly branded. The Eiffel Tower (See Image 2) on a foggy night from across the Seine. I ventured to take an almost empty lift to the upper platforms as visibility was poor. Yet I looked through the glass and took this almost alien looking photograph. Paris, the Seine, the Notre Dame and a foggy night make for a great location in the sequel. #paris #eiffeltower #fog #france #seine #wanderlust #amwriting #amazon #travelporn #travelblogger #devilsprayer #follow4likes #passionpassport #authorsofinstagram

‘Sunset over Stuttgart’. “I see God in every creation, in the staggering beauty of this fragile world. I see God in every act of kindness” Denise queried “So what of acts of cruelty and hate? - Do you see the Devil? For God and the Devil do not exist without each other. Two faces of the same coin.? - The Devil’s Prayer. #devilsprayer #stuttgart #germany #sunset #travelphotography #bookstagram #wanderlust #travelporn #passionpassport #religion #amwriting #authorsofinstagram #travelblogger #follow4likes

"I had a Nanny Beatrice, and she was just like me, a She Wolf, she'd fight tooth and claw for her family,
She went in like a bytch, they called her the old witch, that man, he'd do anything to get a little bit rich,
He has a funny way, of getting what he wants,
He set her up lies, tied the noose tight, then pushed her off,
Nan I'm on my knees I beg you,
Hear my Devil's Prayer, as I lay myself bear,
I don't wanna break the heart of any other bytch but you, but you,
Hear my Devil's Prayer, I sing it all for you,
I know I'm going to Hell, but I don't mind as long as I know you're there too!" ❤️
Kiss my Arse or call me a Bitch, I will still be #Queen 😘

‘Death and the Woodcutter’- Jean Francois Millet. The masterpiece based on the poem by the same name. ‘Death comes to end our woes. But who called him? Not I! The motto of mankind still goes: We’ll suffer all, sooner than die.” -Jean Fontaine -1666. Came across this in the Glyptoteket in Copenhagen whilst searching for material for the sequel. #glyptoteket #copenhagen #denmark #masterpiece #artistsoninstagram #art #travelblogger #amwriting #painting #death #devilsprayer #travelporn #horror #bookstagram
