      On a crisp friday 3 men and a little lady (mysellf and members proj3ctm4yh3m, Mr Dystopia and Lowri Jen 37) boarded a ferry from Newcastle heading to Amsterdam.
      The start of an epic 3 days of exploring with 8 locations done and no fails
      We met some brilliant folk and had an absolute scream, really really enjoyed this trip, havent laughed so hard for ages.
      After a heavy night on the boat we arrived at Amsterdam, and proceeded with the 2 and bit hours drive to our first location Chateau Gramophone. Outside we met up with the great explorer Luc De Cock, where, after scaring the crap out of us in his black security uniform , we made our way in.
      Stunning building with a surreal interior, one of the most intact/untouched places I`ve had the pleasure to be in.




























      onto processing report 2, my favourite explore ever !!!

      Day 2 of the tour
      After a very quiet night we were all up at 5am for a 60 minute drive (why is everything in Belgium 60 mins away)
      Parking in a very conveniently situated carpark we done a brisk hop skip and jump and we were in.
      Pitch black we made our way down to the basement for an hours attempt at sleeping,the excitement was too much for me and there was no chance of sleeping.
      About 7:50am we made our way up and into the main hall, this is the 2nd time I`ve been lucky enough to do this magnificent building, as just like the first time it took my breath away.
      It so bloody big !! it tricks you from the outside, and it tricks you from the low ceiling rooms you walk through to get to the main hall, how many times I just stopped and looked around, probably too many.
      I feel honoured to have stood in this place, really holds a grip over me I cant explain, maybe its like when your a child and your have your favourite sports/super car and then you see it, I guess thats what this place is like for me. Ever since seeing a pic of this 18 months ago i knew I had to get in there, no matter what. I still get the hairs on the back of neck standing up when I think/look at pics of it.
      Anyhows.......... 5hours later we exited and started the 60 minute (see what I mean) drive to location number 3
      sorry for the number of pics but this is cut down from 70 !
























      cheers

      ok, been a while since I posted from this trip.
      Day 3, after a very messy night involving several bottles of "baron" red wine, our motley crew awoke.
      Where were we going ?? The night before had been frantic messages home and abroad trying to figure out if the place was still open.......... yes/no/yes/no, then we decided Foret, but then we decided prison........ the last message I had stated it was open, so we got in the car and set off.
      After at least 3 wrong turns on the motorways we finally got heading in the right direction !!
      We met up with 2 explorers from Holland, Mornix and Mallory, good friends and really good to see them again. (Mallorys Apricot pie was amazing !! and who says prison food is rubbish )
      Long story short......... we got in........ took some pics......... go out........ no dramas no gypsies but we heard a few guns being fired in the prison next next door.























      cheers

      A late autumn morning spent lurking in a HUGE decommissioned blast furnace, dodging trains
      and security patrols? Yep... That'll do nicely!
