Summer vacations aren’t always relaxing! My Illustration for a Boston Globe essay. The author of the essay prefers to just stay HOME during the summer while everyone else clogs up the roads to the beaches and sweats out in the heat & humidity.
Although I’m looking forward to having some summer adventures this year, as a homebody & easily-sunburned-person I definitely sympathize!
Unlike the fictional Overlook Hotel in Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, this hotel is really named the Overlook. The abandoned hotel is located in the small, wine growing town of Bernkastel-Kues in Germany. Other than it has been unoccupied for about 13 years, there is no information as to why the hotel was closed. All of the furniture remains and it looks as if everyone there simply left. There are rumors that the hotel is haunted. According to urban explorers who frequent the spooky site, cameras malfunction, sounds can be heard throughout the premises and items seem to move around the hotel by themselves.
