  1. Did you ever went to an Island full of creepy dolls??? NO??? Let me take you with you! On my holiday in December 2017 to Mexico I heard about this place so I had to go. There is no holiday without finding some decayed stuff! The story goes as followed: The guy who lives on this Island found a girl who was drowned around the island. He also found a doll floating nearby and, assuming it belonged to the deceased girl so he hung it on a tree as a sign of respect. After he did that he heard whispers and foodsteps around his hut where he lived. He started to collect and hang more and more old dolls to calm down the spirit of the drowned girl. In 2001 the owner of the Island died and was found on the same spot where the girl was found. When I wanted to go to this place I had to find someone who wanted to bring me there because it was hard to reach according to people around there because of latest hurricanes and earthquakes . After a lot of negotiations I found someone with a little boat to go there and to be honest it was worth the whole trip!! I hope you liked it! Let me know what you think!

  3. Hi explorers, One of the most surprising locations I have been was Maison Kirsch in Luxembourg... It is already a quite old urbex location, but we gave it a try begin 2015 ... And it was actually a very nice fun location! Still a lot of details and not very much was trashed.... Hope you liked my little tour in Maison Kirsch and please leave some comments if you liked it.. also check my flickr if you like ... https://flickr.com/marco18678 Happy exploring and talk to you guys / girls later!! Marco
  4. Hi crazy fellow urbex people, I've been 2 times at this location. The first time was already almost dark and we thought there was no entrance anymore... All the windows were closed and sealed... But we didn't look good because later we heard were the opening was. And I really wanted to capture some of those weird baskets that they use at the mine to store your personal belongings. They put their stuff in it and ther raise it to the ceiling. Every person had his own lock so people could not lower someone else his basket... pretty clever use of the space! The only interesting thing for me to photograph were the baskets... the rest of the place was not so interesting to me... Please if you like it put some comments ... love to hear some feedback! See ya, Marco

  6. Hi, This will be my first post on this forum. I am already for quite some time on the facebook page, but I wanted to post some on the forum, because this is where the forum is for ) Begin this year I did a trip to Belgium / Luxembourg / France / Germany ... It was a hell of a trip! So many amazing locations to see!! I will start with Sous les nuages in France.. When I saw some pictures online of this location I knew we had to do this one..! When we arrived we already saw the HUGE building! It was tricky to find some entrance and there was a goat as an guard, but we made it! We started in de library ... what an amazing place!!!! The living room and dining room was amazing too ... so well preserved that somehow you had the feeling with some cleaning and painting you could still live here very well!! Upstairs was a bit more decayed ... you could see the roof had his best time... After some hours we rushed to our next location ... but we were really happy we could do this one! It was worth the trip! Will be back with some more locations! Please leave a comment below if you like it! See ya, Marco
