Tombs, tombs and more tombs

The island of Lolland, Falster and Mons are known for its ancient tombs, aka passage graves or dolmen, from the stone and bronze age. In the Netherlands similar constructions are known in the province of Drente.

I started the day with a stroll trough one of the forests of Lolland where some tombs could be found. Also I was able to spot some deer as well as some pheasants.

Today was a long day on the road, I drove about 450 KM trough Germany to end up in the harbour of Puttgarden where the ferry to Rødby goes. I didn’t buy a ticket in advance and actually planned to do some wild camping in Puttgarden and take the ferry in the morning. Upon arrival it was still possible to take one of the latest ferries of the day and I decided to do so.
