The one with all the graffiti

Back in december me and my friend Lieke took our bikes and went on a little expedition to the newly opened bridge. Other than that, we also paid a visit to an old factory, where I've been wanting to go for a long time. It's located at a bit of an abandoned part of town, and I didn't dare to go all by myself. I'm not that big of a scaredy-cat, but it might be a good idea to stay away from shows like Criminal Minds and CSI for a while. Ofcourse, there were no scary men (or women) to be seen, and we did find some awesome graffiti, for which the old factory is known. There are more photo's but I'll save those for another post.
