This was our next explore. It was a fantastic day but resulted in a phone call to Sullz back in the UK and a 60euro taxi journey....bloody trains.

We got the train to the nearest stop and got out. We missed the bus by about 1 minute so waited around for an hour, took a trip to Lidl and then went back to the bus stop. Once we finally got the bus and got there we read our little printout of OT's PM. We went to our nearest access point and walked in. As we were walking in we were greated by a german police car containing, what looked like, Laurel and Hardy. After us shouting 'tourist' at them and me looking like a knob taking photos on my imaginery camera, to show that we were tourists, we left and headed for the next access point. A mile later and we were there. Access was....interesting.

As soon as we were inside the fencing we headed in the general direction of the main building. We kept hearing 'van door' noises. We got further inside and then saw a van with its lights on heading our direction, we legged it and dived behind a flower bed/bunker (i think it was a flower bed, Dojann doesnt agree). After poking our heads up and watching it go we then proceeded.

A long'ish walk later and we saw the swimming pool building. Access was a joke lol. Once inside we realised that it had become nearly pitch black outside. Flash was out of the question, so was light painting (glass walls) so that meant that, as most Canon users must know, auto focus was also out of the question.

Had a fantastic time and apart from my slight Fawlty Towers march and salute all was good.

On with the pictures!

1. A very cool car parked near the station

4. A very impressive wall, it was nice looking at these pics back at the hotel and seeing how much detail there was in there. All we could see was mostly blackness.
