You are a bloody, stinking, lying, b-word!
<3 One Disgruntled Surfer
Yes, tout le monde, the internet led me (and a car full of my nearest and dearest) astray last weekend. It all happened on Thursday night. Insomnia had sunk it's torturous, Sandman scaring fangs into me and wasn't showing any signs of letting go. The time? Near 2 AM. My coping mechanism? Facebook.
I was merrily (as merrily as one who deeply craves but one thing and cannot have it despite hours of effort (cos laying in bed is hard work)) scrolling through my Facebook feed, when I came across THIS article. A ton of cars rotting in a Belgian forest is super cool/creepy/perfect for an exploration and a photoshoot, right? I hopped onto Google maps and discovered that the city this car graveyard is near is only a 2 hour drive from where I live, so I rounded up the usual suspects, we packed a picnic and hit the road on Saturday morning.
Our first snag was that the above article, nay any other article we could find online gave coordinates on where this forest is actually located, though some articles state that the car graveyards are a big tourist spot and are easy to find. Soldier Boy tracked down a satellite image that clearly show the cars in the woods, so we used that as a guide. When we arrived at said spot, we found that it is at the edge of a giant field of cows. We parked the car, ducked under a barbed wire fence (which I snagged my leather jacket on) and found… oooooh, just guess…
ONE CAR IN THE FOREST!
In some of what I read, I found that there used to be 5 car graveyards, but that now only one remains, so instead of taking outfit photos with the car that we did find, we attempted to track down the other car graveyards, got hungry and bored fast, and headed home, which made me uber sad because I got rather dressed (in my snazzy new dress from SammyDress) up for an excursion of this type. Luckily, the entrance to a series of underground tunnels built by Hitler during WWI is across the street from my house, so I used that as my background. Please pardon the inconsistency of the photos here) I'm off to Italy tomorrow and will have more fun travel snaps coming up!
Also, as I've been writing this post, I came across THIS article, which features photos of the exact same lone car that I snapped on our adventure! GRRRRRR, INTERNET!
