Everything's Abandoned! Is this End of Days?


Recommended Posts

Went out on some familiar back roads into Murcia province to put the Beemer through it's paces.......get a better feel for it type of thing. As I've said it's totally different to the Strom in all respects as it feels like a big dirtbike or supermoto.......rather than a road bike that looks like it can handle a limited degree of offoad.


The upshot is I'm still very impressed with it......even took it in places I wouldn't have taken the Strom......and it handled it easily.


Couple of Beemer Boys loaded with dustbins were holding me up......so I had to pass them! Not sure if they're aware that despite paying around €20K for the full Ewan and Charley experience, they were holding up and got passed by an A2 licence motorcycle ridden by an Old Age Pensioner! :lol:


Anyway, I ended up near the abandoned village of Moralejo de Arriba so I took a few shots in there.


After I left there, I wanted to top up with petrol.......but found that the filling station was abandoned as well. Looks like they left quite a bit of stuff in there too.


So it's a treble dose of dark motorcycling......Abandoned Beemer Boys, Abandoned Village, and Abandoned Petrol Station! 


This has to be End of Days! Weather permitting of course!

My cousin recently renovated an abandoned house in Spain (purchased from its previous owner, I don't mean he just rocked up and picked a house at random). He could have an entire village by the looks of it.


Ireland looked a bit like that, tens years ago, after the financial crash. There were lots of abandoned homes, many brand new and almost complete. A distant relative was one of two householders on an estate of over 100 houses that the developer had to abandon as he went bust.
