Back home :-(

Post holiday depression set in soon after i arrived back in Melbourne. It has stayed with me for a long long time. Yes this is going to be one of those posts where people complain about not being back on holiday and not appreciating what they have. Sure i can go on and on about all the friends i am seeing after 5 months of holidays, but that’s no comfort. I miss Europe and the people there really miss Prague and the great time I had there.

With that said i have been doing NOTHING since back at home. sleeping 6 hours a day, playing playstation 3, and going out taking photos. The inspiration for photos has stopped and the dream of moving to Europe take over my thoughts. With lack of things going on in my life I have left things slip. my blog, flickr, and tumblr. All these things have slipped on the wayside.

But things are changing Big things are happening.

Here’s a few photos that I have done with the help of friends. Photos are the only thing keeping me sane at the moment.

Holiday.

This blog is mainly going to be about my holiday in the EU. It will consist of photos of abandoned buildings and photos of general sight-seeing from most of the continent. Urban exploration in australia is fun but when I see photos uploaded of places in the UK and the EU I am amazed by the sheer beauty of them. Some places are so big and have been left abandoned for years, even decades with little to no vandalism. This is unheard of in Melbourne.

The holiday will start off with a bang when Nameless (for now)¬† my mate ‘mask’ and I in Ukraine for 10 days with a 3 day 2 night visit to Pripyat. As much of a disaster that was the nuclear meltdown that happened in Chernobyl and the lives it took and changed, it’s still a destination that we are looking forward too.

After our 10 days are up we all go our separate ways. There will be lots of stories and photos from us.

Keep up to date with our adventures  of urban exploring by following my blog and or group one here.

here is a pretty photo for reading this far.

The basement.

first attempt at this place was a failure with the WLGS’s. This place was the cream of the crop when it came to UE in melbourne. Melbournians tend to trash the site and with-in a matter of months once the word is out a place is ruind and graffed over. back to the failure of out first attempt.¬† We had out hearts set on entering this place and seeingwhat is inside. No one had been in there before and it looked prime for the taking. WLGS never got organised to explore this site and then we started seeing photos of it on flickr. It had been found out and now everyone knew about it. It would be a mtter of time before the vandals got they mits on this pristine place and ruin it we thought. trying to get everyone together at the same time is always hard so i decided to go to this place with a mate and report back to the rest of the WLGS crew.

My mate and I were out at a site that will remain nameless. spent a few great hours there taking photos and exploring this HUGE site. We were like kids in a candy store.

after a couple of hours my mate points to some stairs that head to a basement. we decide to investigate them. to our surprise it lead to a musty room with water dripping from the ceiling. the mud on the floor made it very difficult to walk. All this didnt matter to us as we had stmbled onto something big. something that no one would have seen in over 20 years.

A room full of files and records from the company. As I was trying to remember the photos from the other people on flickr from this place no one had posted photos of the basement. Were we the only ones to have ventured down to the basement?
