Travel: Abandoned Places

Another great Buzzfeed List: The 33 Most Beautiful Abandoned Places In The World

Abandoned places are so gorgeous and evoke so many emotions as well as stir a sense of mystery.

Some of my favorites:

Kolmanskop in the Namib Desert

There is something so hauntingly beautiful about abandoned places.

I have so many feelings and thoughts about these abandoned places that can hardly put any of them into words.
One thought I have is that they move me so much and I believe that my passion for the abandoned is what I love about cities in Europe, that the everyday is connected to the historical.
And there is something so mystical about seeing and feeling the echos of time.
