bwookss asked: hello :] so I'm really into abandoned houses and some of the ones in England you've posted are absolutely stunning. how do you find out where they are so that you could visit? I'd love to visit some.

Hey hey!

To find out where they are it’s best to become a frequent visitor on 28dayslater and forums like that. You have to become a regular poster to gain respect and trust from others to tell you about things.

There are a lot of places that aren’t disclosed because not all people want to go and look and leave it in the same state they found it.

From cracked.com;

Expo ‘92 in Seville was one of the 20th century’s final world’s fairs, so Spain wanted to do that biz up right. The theme of the expo was “The Age of Discoveries,” and Seville certainly lived up to it: They spent over five years and $2 billion to construct a 500-plus-acre utopian city of the future.

The expo was a smash hit, attracting more than 16 million visitors during its short six-month run. But the extravaganza was over as quickly as it began, and while the organizers had high hopes that it would spark a rebirth of tourism to the region, it just … didn’t. Thus, much of the site has since been abandoned to the elements. The rocket ship on the horizon is forever lashed to the Earth by decidedly low-tech vines; the monorails are up on blocks and wouldn’t look a bit out of place in the backyard of some sci-fi redneck.

Memorial-Bulgaria

(Information from source)
In 1891, a group of socialists lead by Dimitar Blagoev met on a peak to plan for Bulgaria’s future, resulting in the birth of the Bulgarian Socialist Party…..
In 1974 construction began on a monument to commemorate Blagoev’s contribution to his country: designed by Georgi Stoilov, it took the equivalent of €14,186,000 ($20,387,292) and seven years to complete.

After the government’s fall from power in 1989 the site was abandoned and left open to vandalism. All salvageable metal has since been removed by scrappers.
There are no plans to do anything with the memorial

Island of the Dolls-Mexico.Although a big tourist attraction, this island remains uninhabited…..From source;
'The story goes that the island’s only inhabitant, Don Julian Santana, found the body of a drowned child in the canal some 50 years ago. He was haunted by her death, so when he saw a doll floating by in the canal soon after, he hung it in a tree to please the girl. He hoped to both appease her tortured soul and protect the island from further evil.’

Abandoned building - Paris, France.

'A doomed 10-storey building slated to be demolished has been decorated inside and out by more than 100 street artists in Paris, France.
After gaining the relevant permissions, art gallery owner Mehdi Ben Cheikh invited artists from around the world to decorate every part of the building - from its 36 apartments to stairwells and even the exterior brickwork - before it is torn down.
Tour 13, as the project is called, is now open to the public until the end of October.’
