A wise man once said "life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get".
The story started a few weeks ago when I so cleverly thought it wise to buy some land in a remote town I never heard of before. Because my consumerist blood was flowing so intensely and what is cheap must be bought, even though you don’t need it, here began my journey into buying a big piece of
The actual idea came from my wife that one day from surfing the net had come across a site which promotes and auctions various properties all over the country. The basic setup is. A buyer has a few weeks to visit any property, something I did not do, and inspect everything to see if is worth buying. If still interested the potential buyer must send an envelope containing his personal details, information on the property in which he is interested and most importantly his bid. Generally and auction takes a few months to end so there’s plenty of time to check everything out before hand. To make a short story even shorter let’s just say that I won one of the many bids I had sent in.
A few weeks later I received the much anticipated phone call informing me that I had won one of the properties in which I had made a bid. Very ecstatic with the news, I immediately got into my car, drove for a few hours into the unknown to claim what was mine by right and pay for it obviously.
Bellow I’ve taken the liberty to post a few photos I took from my worthless land.
Many big rocks, a very common theme on my land.
One of the many big rocks that can be found on my land.
This is the driveway. If you are a trucker or bus driver you will never have trouble parking, trust me.
The hole from one side.
The road leading into my property.
A big marble rock stands robustly in the middle of the hole. Quite breath taking really.
This is an image of my wall. Dating back to the 13th century this beauty gives the surrounding area an even bigger look of worthlessness.
This road goes to…. I just don’t know….
So here we have the picture. One big hole in the middle of who knows where.
Today I’m the proud owner of a big hole on the side of a road. The big hole was once upon a time a small quarry but it has long since been left forgotten in the middle of the wordless. From the looks of it this is how it will look for many years to come.
