Personal highlights

  1. Ørbæk: small town in central Denmarkinfo-icon near Nyborg
  2. Megalithic Stones: graves or site of spiritual rituals?
  3. Nature: amazing hike along wheat fields and sheep
  4. Location: pretty hard to find, hidden behind a forest
  5. Archeology: exploring the stones but don't understand
