Rural, Historic, Abandoned and
Desolate Places, Travels in Spain and Other Things
Hello and welcome to my site.
Here you'll find pages available (with lots of pictures)on subjects like:
country rural, historic, regional and remote Australian towns and places that I visit and
scenic places of natural beauty
travels on Route 66 or any other interesting or historic country, place, road etc!
places that are abandoned, disused, desolate or interesting to me in any way, or have a military
aspect to them, plus a bit of urban exploration
classic Australian pubs, whether still in use as a pub, adapted to other uses, closed or abandoned
interesting churches, operating or otherwise
rock and pop music of the 60s, 70s and 80s
my interest in and travels in Spain, the Spanish Language (viva!), food, people, architecture, history etc
