#abandoned #ghosttown #Fairfieldcounty - a barrier island off of Bridgeport Ct with beach houses that had an #amusementpark in 1892 - the access bridge burned in 1996 - we photographed there in 2009 by hiking in along the shoreline. It’s now a #naturepreserve
Great Last minute overnight camping with mini road trips to Aspen and St Elmo! The rivers and streams are roaring right now with all the snow melt. #colorado #camping #lakeviewcampground #exploring #ghosttown

Vladislav in the semi abandoned Town of Dzhantukha. Vladislav is one of the last inhabitants of the so called Akarmara zone. Abkhazia.

So after watching the HBO series “Chernobyl”, Crime Buddy and I decided to make a mission to check out the place for ourselves....I could go on for days speaking of my trip because that’s how much it has moved me...from entering the location, to getting screened, walking around with a decimeter to measure radiation, seeing deserted buildings and homes, a brand new abandoned amusement park that has never ever been used and the infamous Reactor 4 and the newly built sarcophagus built to last 100 years...The way the people of Ukraine react to this is very similar to the way many people in South Africa react about Apartheid and the Group Areas Act... #chernobyl #excluzionzone #pripyat #ghosttown #reactor4 #deeplymoved #blessedtoexperiencethis #solotraveller #plusone #globalcitizen

This once beautiful and dynamic village built on the mountainside in the 11th century used to be the home of Greeks of Turkey, living in harmony with their Turkish neighbours. After the war, in 1922, Turkey and Greece signed the population exchange treaty. One odd morning, they were told to leave their homes and go make a new one in Greece. They objected, even their Turkish neighbours wrote to the goverment asking to cancel this decision but sadly all efforts were in vain. So they left, walking 8km to the next harbour to get on the ship that would take them to their new homes. Still they thought this was a temporary measure so all they brought with them was their suitcases. However it was not a temporary measure and eventually, finding each other in Greece, they set up a new home. In the meantime, some of the Turks from Greece suffering the exact same fate - my grandfather was one of them - were brought to Kayaköy. They were farmers so they couldn’t live on the mountainside... the village was abondened. In time misguided treasure hunters, earthquakes and loneliness turned Kayaköy into a ghost town! not even the attempts of Turkish Greek Friendship Asaociation in 1988 could save it. Now it is a protected historical site. Partially opened to urban development in 2014 - whether it will be good or bad for Kayaköy, we will have to wait and see. But when you walk among the narrow streets, and derelict houses of this big town now lost under a blanket of wild thorns and flowers, all you feel is sadness and a strange serenity. You think of wars and suffering of people and the loss, of Greeks of Turks ... of the world... and you can only send a bitter greeting to its former owners... #kayaköy #ghosttown #Turkey #Mugla #populationexchange #wars #displacement #nature #beauty #Turks #Greeks #Fethiye
