Pipe Porn – Belgium Style

After our rather disappointing start to our inaugural Belgium road trip we made our second stop at IM Power Station..now I’ve been up close and personnel with Battersea but this place was huge !

Belgium never ceases to amaze…but sadly this place has been ripped to shreds now and therefore was a bit of a disappointment.
