The town of Yanghuo and the village of Xingping China sit in the stunning limestone karst peaks of the Guangxi province of Southern China.

The most eerie, impressive and moving abandoned places to explore in Europe (where we’ve been so far!)

We love exploring abandoned places, call us strange, but there is nothing quite like the eerie atmosphere of discovering a forgotten or over looked area of a city.

From the capital a day trip to Matka

Hitchhiking to the tropical Bogove waterfall in rural Albania, a day of real adventure! (Plus: shorty skinny dipping!)

Whilst on our amazing 11 day adventure through Albania and the ensuing love affair that resulted, we found ourselves in the charming town of Berat. This beautiful Ottoman city has clung to the side of mountains for centuries and we inevitably ended up extending our stay. We heard whispers amongst our fellow travellers of a
