Road Trip - Belgium '12

Lots of fantastic sites seen on this rather spontaneous trip [erm, primarily a trip to Wales, heh].

all places visited with: Day Of The Dead, Keïteï and Subversive.

Day 1

So we are queuing for the ferry down to France, and who can we see queuing next to us?! Sx-riffraff and his crew! heh, we did Belgium Road Trip together last year.. that's completely unscheduled meet up, i love random encounters, bizarre, random meetings :)

Crachoir Swimming Pool

After a fail in an abandoned house (which wasn't quite abandoned and we opened the door to meet a very angry lady and her dog, lol) we headed for this swimming pool. Build in 1915, with lot's of eye catching details.

Cite du Dragon

Stop number two, an abandoned Chinese restaurant, unfortunately smashed to bits.

Chambre du Commerce

Famous CDC, there's some work going on here atm, floor has been all stripped down, and there's lot's of random junk lying around, hopefully it will make it look better in the future.. We stayed here over night.

Day 2

Salve Mater

Very interesting site, partially occupied by the artists, which charge 20 Euro per head to shoot inside, ehh. Fortunately we managed to capture three of the buildings before getting noticed and caught, so brace yourselves.. even-though the guy has been very polite.

Hoff van B.

It's all about stairs in this place, normally you wouldn't even stop, while passing next to this smashed to bits office building.. but quoting Oldskool after visiting here: "Never judge the book by it's cover", yup.

Horror Labs

Unfortunately we spent here only about 15 minutes before getting raid of armed police force.. Had to drop our tripods, get on our knees and things like this, very unpleasant indeed. Return visit is necessary..

St Hilarius

We had a little wait here to allow builders leave the site so we can enter. It's partially abandoned and very easy to meet someone you not necessarily want to inside.. We had a good luck and in few hours we could properly document the site.

Forges de Clabeq

Last place we managed to do before it got dark, plenty of rusting steel and some nice views.

Day 3

IM Powerstation

After rather eventful night involving police, security and the lack of place to sleep as it was too dark to find one, we woke up to explore this impressive power station and it's cooling tower.

Cooling Tower

Home Sweet Home

Last surprisingly good stop of the trip, plenty of chairs and beds, heh. An abandoned care home and hospital.
