About 2 weeks ago i joined a ride out to an abandoned village in Belgium.
The village itself still has a few people living in there, as they refuse to get sold out by the government.
Quite an interesting city, which attracts more and more tourist every year.

This was my first visit, and it was quite an amazing place to visit.

Might revisit it with better weather and do a vlog about the story, if people are interested in that stuff ;)





"Doel is threatened with complete demolition due to the future enlargement of the Port of Antwerp. This has seen many people having to sell their homes to the development corporation of that enlargement. Many historic buildings will be destroyed. The village has many historic buildings, including the oldest stone windmill of the country (1611), and the only windmill on a sea wall. "

Never heard of this place but is the type of place that catches my attention. Look forward to watching this one and any future vids.

Thanks.

I have a handful of people who are (semi)interested in the origin story of Doel, so when the sun gets out and temp is above 15 c. i will be riding back to Doel ;)
