Tour Report: Farmhouse "Danish Dynamite" [Revisit]

Only a short while after my first visit to this place, I got the chance for a short revisit. My niece worked for a German radio station at the time, and they had her do a short piece about urban exploring. So we drove up to Denmark, so I could show her the abandoned house that we had discovered a few weeks earlier.
My niece had been on tour with us once before, so she wasn't completely new to the hobby of urban exploration. We parked in the same spot where we had parked for our last visit, walked around the house, and the window was still open.
My niece was recording everything, asking questions and describing what we were seeing.
We started with the house itself and then made our way into the barn. There were actually a few shots that I'd missed the first time around, and the light was pretty good as well.
After about an hour, we climbed out again.
On the way to the car, we noticed that a neighbor was standing in front of his house and looking at us. We thought that this was a unique chance to get a little extra for the radio, and walked over to him.
We introduced ourselves, and he told us that he had seen us walking around the old house. Apparently, he had no problem with this, and he even agreed to tell us a little bit about the story of the house we'd just explored. Since he spoke German, that was a really nice addition for the recording.
When we were finished, we packed up and headed back home.

Tour Report: The Priest's Home [Revisit]

Only a few months after my wife and I first visited this place, we returned for a revisit to the abandoned home together with our friend North Urbex.
It was the final spot on a spontaneous tour through Denmark back in October of 2017.
There is nothing much to say about the visit itself. We parked on the same spot as the first time - with the exception that there weren't as many flies around - and walked the rest of the way up to the house.
Upon entering, we immediately saw that there had been vandals at work in the months before. The mess had gotten worse, but the few worthwile shots were still there, so we took what we could get in terms of photos and got back to the car to drive back home.
And yes - the next time around we were going to take the time to check out the barns of the place as well, so stay tuned :)

Tour Report: The Inn by the Cemetery [Revisit]

As the second spot on our short tour through Denmark together with North Urbex, we had decided to go for a revisit of a spot that my wife and I had first visited about six months earlier - a really nice abandoned old inn.
We assumed that it would still be accessible relatively easy, and we also hadn't been able to explore the smaller house across the street during our first visit, so there still might be more to see for us.
Everything went smoothly, just like the first time.
We parked in the public parking lot right near the inn, and we walked around the building. There we found the open window that we'd used the first time - it was still open!
As we entered, we already could see that not much had changed in the past six months. Most of the wine bottles from the bar had miraculously disappeared, and some of the decorations had wandered around in the main room - but aside from that, everything was the same.
As I walked through the rooms taking photos, I found myself hoping to be able to see the place again in a couple of years when there is decay everywhere - not only in a couple of the guest rooms. In any case, the condition of the old inn is still really good despite almost ten years of abandonment.

After we had finished taking photos in the main building, we climbed back out and crossed the street to see if we could find a way into the other building that we supposed was the residence of the owners and/or the hotel staff.
We walked around the small house and checked for openings. Just as we were going to give up, we found a small open window.
North Urbex squeezed through, and I followed. When I was crouching on the windowsill to squeeze through, I heard him say, "Watch out for the cat."
I asked, "What cat?", and in that same moment, I saw a cat running and jumping towards the window. There was a bang, the cat was gone, and so was one of the lattice windows right next to me.
The cat appeared to be alright - there was no trace of it, and the window was broken clean.
After this little moment of shock, we continued our exploration. It was only a small house, so we were through in about thirty minutes.
