Blockhaus d'Eperlecques, a Nazi megastructure built in occupied France as a launching facility for V2 rockets. This huge concrete building was constructed between March 1943 and July 1944, under the code name Kraftwerk Nord West, to accommodate up to 100 V2 rockets and launch up to 36 every day. If it had been completed, it would have incorporated a liquid oxygen factory and a bomb proof train station to allow missiles and supplies to be delivered from Germany. The main structure is that shown in the photo, and is 92 metres high, 28 metres wide and possesses walls 7 metres thick in order to protect the area for assembling the V2s. Located north of this is a fortified railway station, and just beyond this is a bomb proof power station which would have provided a generating capacity of 1.5MW in order to make the site self sufficient. This huge structure was built by a total of 35,000 slave labourers; amongst them were Spanish Republicans who had fled Spain at the end of the Civil War, as well as French, Belgian and Soviet POWs. Nevertheless, the complex was put out of action as part of the British and American Operation Crossbow, a series of bombing raids that were designed to knock out the German V-weapons programme. The raids on Eperlecques and Mimoyecques will be covered in detail in future posts, but here it will suffice to say that work at the complex was finally abandoned in July 1944 due to the raids. This was shortly followed with its capture by Canadian forces on the 4th of September, but only after large parts of the facility had been made inaccessible by the Germans flooding the basement.

Ik bezocht vandaag Fort Vijfhuizen! Wat een rust. Het monumentale Fort maakt deel uit van de Stelling van Amsterdam; een 19e-eeuws verdedigingsplan dat nooit volledig in werking is gezet, en in 1996 werd uitgeroepen tot Unesco Werelderfgoed. Yep, daar was ik dus en ik had de zon aangezet. #kanik #cultuursnuiven 🤔

Not just lost, but wonderfully lost. Getting lost, in the traditional and out-of-the-box sense of the word, is just one way you can find something out of the ordinary as you travel. #Girl #trek #trip #trippyowl #_coi #travel #sahydri #ratangad #fort #nature #hiking #she #lost #throwback #trekking #instahappiness #instagood #insta_maharashtra #clickindiaclick #maratha #travelling #TravelAdvantage #bestcapture

There's something so utterly fascinating about ruins. As you stare at the remains of the past, you wonder about all those people who lived there once upon a time... - The Rani Mahal inside Golconda Fort . . . #RaniMahal #Golconda #Fort #GolcondaFort #Hyderabad #HyderabadDiaries #SouthIndia #HistoricalMonument #History #India #IncredibleIndia #TravelDiaries #Travelogue #Travel

I've heard so many bad comments about solo travel as a woman. Recently, in Goa, this girl got raped and murdered and I've been reading comments like: "it's her own fault for going to the country alone." India has been getting so much bad press and all I want to say is that violence against women is sadly something that happens, everywhere in the world, even in the town you grew up in. Yesterday, two girls got raped and murdered in my hometown in France. But that shouldn't give bad press to the whole country. Bad people are everywhere. But you wouldn't say: "Don't go to France, really bad people are there!" Would you? As women, it’s up to us to face these situations and accept that while there is danger and fear from outside, there is also strength and confidence on the inside. India is incredible and despite the dangers, it’s also one of the most fascinating, diverse and colourful places I’ve ever been to. So ladies, don't be scared of traveling to India alone. It's my second time and I feel strongly that travelling in India is a very personal experience, so if you really want to go but something is holding you back. Just go for it. Honestly. P.S. yes, I was alone watching the sunset, overlooking Jodhpur Fort.

Groupe fortifié François-de-Guise. C'est un peu glauque quand tu y arrives mais c'est impressionnant. La hauteur et l'épaisseur des murs de ce fort sont gigantesques.

Imagination and invention go hand in hand. Remember how lack of resources was never no problem in childhood games? Shift a few pieces of furniture around the living room and you have yourself a #fort. #himachal #heritage #symmetry
Awestruck by the grandeur of this fort. 700 years in building and nearly 28 generations of royalties and marvelous architecture And it becomes amazing when you have your Sis as a #travelbuddy #incredibleindia #pinkcity #fort #summertrip #nofilter #instagram #instatravel
Throwback2016..... ‘There is something about these mountains that I am addicted to. Every step I take, every pain I encounter, gives me sheer pleasure of doing it more. The drug of climbing is addictive. It is not just the views, but the nature that calls me, every time when my soul gets polluted of city lights. I thank the god of nature to give me a chance to encounter such beauty. And I wish that as long as my breath last, I keep hiking and watching the miracles of nature’ #torna #fort #pune #trek #trekking #climbing #rain #clouds #backpacking #hiking #outdoor #explorer #traveler #travel #mountains #hills #wanderer #wanderlust #wonderlust #nature #scenery #puppies #travelpics #lonelyplanetindia #incredibleindia #photography #potd #instamood #wonderful_places #gopro
