My Most Failed Urbexperience

Living in the capital region meant, that I was now able to do a daytrip to almost any of the urbex locations I had read about on other explorers’ sites. And there was one location, which had been intriguing me for quite some time. Laitmanintie was a small road in Western Espoo, where several oneContinue reading “My Most Failed Urbexperience”

Ralph’s House Part III

Among the items was also a packet of cigarette papers. It seems that Ralph was a smoker or knew someone who was. More map pages. This one is from the border of Finland and Sweden in Lapland.

This is apparently, where the butchers had washed themselves after a long day of hardContinue reading “Nightmares Revisited Part VI”

Nightmares Revisited Part V

Back down we go then. As the third floor had been all about apartments, I expected to find them on the second floor, too. This, however, proved not to be the case. What we found instead was an office space full of documents belonging to a company which had operated in the building after theContinue reading “Nightmares Revisited Part V”
