Where did they go? What happened?

 

 Time passes, people pass, and the world keeps rotating. What trails of their lives are left behind? At least, the trails that can be seen and experienced which are available.

                                                     Belgian Victorian mansion, left in 2015

It is quite an experience to open a door of some abandoned building and see that the owner are gone, not there. Maybe they went to church? Or to see a family member?  Now, that's a trial to explore.

The mansion above is one of those homes to wander through rooms and make some possible scenarios that were part of this trail.  Now, this is long, 50 or so minutes. Scan through the explorative video. 

Life happened here. But, one day, the front door had to close and key turned. This is what was left in a silent house.

 The video above is about long, interesting but fast forwarding to allow you to watch a house that was once loved.

                                YouTube + Doctor's home, 9 min. long

 I follow  FB sites that find, explore, and report on abandoned homes. Some are almost falling in, others are trashy but enjoyable, and then the ones with folded laundry on the bed, table set out with plates.

  2. It's funny in the second one when he picks up the glass urinal and calls it a flask.

  3. Better to see this than the deserted houses in Chernobyl after the nuclear explosion there in 1986.

  4. Scary. One wonders if the people were taken against their will and no one thought to look for them.

    1. There was a shot of folded laundry on the girl's bed in another one really is creepy.

  6. When I was growing up, there was an old shack of a one-room home across the road from us. Nothing of note in it but an old table with someone else's abandoned beer can on it. I found out later that it belonged to the man who owned the 40 acres from which our 3/4ths of an acre was carved.

    1. I am betting there are some events and stories that could be found there.

  7. It leaves more questions than it answers to explore these places.

  8. I always go on realtor.com to see what's available in our area but never went into a house that's been abandoned with laundry still on the beds and looking like somebody will walk in any minute and wonder why I was there going through their stuff! If our house ever goes abandoned the blog books are on a shelf in the livingroom..help yourself! This was a bit creepy!

    1. One has to have permission from whomever holds the deed, which is legal record.
      But, some of them are apparently like that. The laundry part is really disturbing.
