    I know this place has been done many times before but it is right up my alley and was a tantalizing temptation whilst the rest of the family slept/swam in the villa pool. Thanks for the tip from a fellow member here. The last report/intel from here was 2014 so it has been a while. Things have...

    France Centrale De Schneider Power Station - France - April 2016

We heard some noise which we assumed was one of our group, but as we later found out, it was someone locking the door and...

    The Littlest Hydro-electric Power Plant - USA - March 2015
