Garage Kees en Annie (NL) – Old abandoned sheds with faded glory, full of oldtimers

Zo’n vijf jaar geleden werd ik getipt over deze plek door een aardige explorer uit Veendam en het duurde niet lang dat ik weer een trip maakte naar het Groninger platteland. Stil en verlaten, een langgerekte weg met hier en daar boerderijen, maar pal er tegenover een woonhuis met vrij uitzicht. Parkeren zou opvallen, ook al staat de auto verderop. Brutalen hebben de halve wereld, maar ik ben soms wat te bescheiden; de eerste keer bleef het bij verkennen.

Erholungsheim Hermann Duncker (DE) – an abandoned retirement home in the Harz mountains

During the return trip from a short holiday in the Harz Mountains last summer, we took a short break for this beautiful location. We were dropped by our fellow explorer Lia, who then looked for a strategic place to keep an eye on things. Twan and I were able to stretch our legs for a while in this large building, where the great decline started a long time ago. With some crumbled ceilings and stairs that are not completely reliable, a great challenge!
