In May 2013 we went on a 12 Day road trip around the former Eastern Bloc for my commissioned book Soviet Ghosts, for 5 days we explored in Eastern Germany, we then drove to Poland where we meet. We drove to Hungry, Slovakia, Austria and then to Czech Republic where we explored the abandoned town of Milovice. Finally we drove back to Berlin to finish the trip. This was the longest I’ve ever been exploring and we had some amazing memories along the way. We did manage to completely wreck our hire car on day two, on our way to the amazing Beelitz hospital, but we all live to tell the tale and it didn’t stop us.
