    Default Hunter Hotel, Germany - August 2016


    This place is more disused than abandoned, but boy was there a story behind it. When it no longer become viable the owner closed down, but instead of selling up for next to nothing he kept it, and leases it out as the odd movie set or model shooting location. It's still got elements of being abandoned - cobwebs here and there and stuff like that. *We visited here on the last night of our trip, and along with photographing the hotel we were offered a roof for the night. Guiseppe, the owner, was one of the coolest guys I've met on my travels. He showed us to a room with 4 bunk beds and a nice hot shower - just what you need after 9 days camping! Before long we'd settled down and he showed us to a monumental stash of food, and told us to help ourselves and cook whatever we want on a lovely wood*stove. He joined us for a few beers that evening and told us about other explorers who'd come and gone through the hotel. It was really nice to be so welcomed into this guy's home, and if i'm ever passing in the future i'll definitely be stopping by!

























    As always, thanks for looking! :D
    I'm probably not in the UK right now..

    Thank you, and it certainly did finish it off nicely, as we had an 800 mile drive the following day! x
