When I heard about a ghost town in Belgium I knew I had to go there, it’s only a 3 hour drive from home. So I asked Melissa and Kevin to join us on this little trip and explore the abandoned city Doel. There’s lots of beautiful street art on every wall.
So about Doel. It’s a tiny village, scheduled to be completely destroyed to make room for an expanding harbor. Every protest and the incredible street art cannot stop te inevitable destruction. Today there are 25 inhabitants left, who wont leave their house. Meanwhile this village has been transformed into an artistic playground with a post-apocalyptic atmosphere.
We kinda were expecting empty streets and grumpy inhabitants, who are not happy with the ‘disaster tourism’. But when we arrived there was a huge sign with all kinds of warning and a poster announcing a flee market, lol. So we weren’t the only ones there.
