Here’s a throwback all the way from 1991. If you haven’t seen the article of hilariously recreated childhood photos, check it out here! I decided to do my own version while I was in the Netherlands…
And in 2013…
Now, about the Hunebedden. Well everyone knows that England has Stonehenge, but did you know that there is a whole cluster of ruins that is even older, in the north of the Netherlands? There are approximately 54 sets, with 52 of them just in the province of Drenthe. They are over 5000 years old and, just like Stonehenge, no one knows exactly how or why they were built. The plaque near this particular site says that Napolean rode his horse across the top of these ruins in order to demonstrate his superior horsemanship.
I wouldn’t advise trying that yourself….
This great website has a lot more Hunebedden information, for those that are interested.
Just one of the many reasons why everyone should see more of the Netherlands than just Amsterdam!
This is very cool! I love the little girl/big girl photos but I really love knowing about these ruins. I took a bike tour in the Netherlands a few years ago and loved everything about what I saw!
That’s actually fascinating!
And I love Stonehenge.
