This is my new favourite obsession!

This abandoned Chateau in France was bought by an Australian couple and now they are renovating the whole place (94 rooms), bit by bit.

The best thing however is that there is a blog with all of the progress and so many photos!
There is also a facebook and Instagram account for anyone who just wants some snapshots.

I can’t stop reading through every snippet of information on this Chateau that has been around since 1700’s.

Kupari luxury resort in Croatia. Abandoned for more than 20 years when the Croatian War of Independence broke out and even though the war only lasted 20 days, all the luxury resorts were destroyed.

Holland Island in Chesapeake Bay.
The house had to be abandoned after the sea took over the last Island in Chesapeake Bay but only after a lengthy struggle by the owner to stop the erosion. (See the digger still there ever after house has been completely destroyed.)

These islands were built off of Dubai and intended to be the ultimate luxury but by the end of 2008, the majority were still uninhabited.
From satellite you can see the full effect; the islands are built as the world.


According to the company who developed them, 70% of the 300 islands have been sold but no one has been seen on any of the islands in a long time and oh yeah, they’re being reclaimed by the sea already…

Slightly less abandoned looking but a novelty anyway;Montreal-Mirabel International Airport-Abandoned since the late 70’s. The airport was due to serve 50million people a year but after the Summer Olympics in Montreal, the airport nosedived (sorry). Parts were sold off as a cargo airport and the rest lay empty apart from a racetrack in the passenger terminal area…

Abandoned (mostly) bomb shelter - Beijing.

During the Cold War, the largest bomb shelter in the world was commissioned beneath the streets of Beijing. Intended to house 6 million people, they not only wanted their citizens to survive a nuclear attack, they wanted to thrive and survive underground if such an event happened.


The tunnels were never finished and a recent explorer found an entrance and discovered a map down there (second photo).
While walking through, he flicked a lightswitch and discovered that the whole place still had electricity running right through it.

Finally, he stumbled upon a homeless family who had set up home down there and even had a fully functioning kitchen (last photo).
