Ah, spring

11
April 2022

Spring is, in general, synonymous with the return of good weather. I well said in general.
This year we had all four seasons in two weeks. We happily went from barbecue to garden to snow sledding, through showers and storms. At least, no routine.

Spring is also synonymous, especially to Mouscron, with the eponymous fair. It was time for it to make its comeback after two years of absence. And of course, I couldn't help but put my camera there. By going there, I also immortalized the new scars inflicted on this city. This is what happens when a city is offered to real estate developers.
I therefore invite you to visit the magnificent streets of Mouscron. Vomit bag not included.

As for urban exploration, that may be for later.


A bit of urbex

Fortunately, between work and daily chores, there is always a way to escape a little. And what could be better than the good old wasteland !
Taking advantage of the mild weather, I took the opportunity to cross the country from side to side. Well, afterwards, I cried when I had to refuel, but whatever. For the next expedition, I'll take out a mortgage.

On the program, two places that are dear to me. The first for the symbol it represents, the other for the challenge it will have been for me : 4 or 5 attempts will have been necessary to overcome it.

To top it off, these two visits allowed me to practice an activity that I particularly enjoy: walking. Helping age, I realize that the counter is ticking, and that it is time for me to get back to sport a little. We cannot win against time, but we can try to mitigate its effects.


The red button

Before a nuclear holocaust now plausible thanks to the other crazy - Putin, if you read me, you are a disgrace to Russia, kill yourself now ! -, I offer you a return to the land of oblivion.
In these troubled times, the calm that usually reigns in abandoned places is a real breath of fresh air for me. Admittedly, the air we breathe there is not the freshest, but who cares. Being away from people is what matters to me.

Visits made with the companies of D-Kryptage Urbain, Kaptage & Robert-Urbex.
And if you're going to make your will, it won't do much good. You don't know it yet, but you're already dead.
On these words, have a nice day.

PS – WorldofJosh.be is now the 1,862,693rd most visited website in the world and its suburbs. In a few weeks, we will be number 1 !
