Last day in Rye with @leabarnfarm . It’s been a lovely weekend away from London! Hard to go back after trips to the countryside because, well, look at that view! 😍 Check out my blog post from last week. I will be posting a new blog post tomorrow!
Striped Fields (3) ... from “my summerhouse hood” on the island Møn in Denmark 💚🤗💚
(There is evidence that people lived in Denmark more than 100,000 years ago, but the area became covered with ice during the last ice age, but people returned to Møn about 10,000 years ago during the Upper Paleolithic era. At that time the island was part of mainland Europe. Møn is an island in south-eastern Denmark and until 1 January 2007, it was a municipality in its own right but it is now part of the municipality of Vordingborg. This has created a municipality with an area of 615 km2 (237 sq mi) and a total population of app. 46,000 (2018) where app. 10.000 (2018) are living on the island Møn itself. It belongs to the Region Sjælland ("Zealand Region"). Møn is one of Denmark's most popular destinations for tourists with its lovely countryside living, sandy beaches and the cozy “market town” of Stege – and not least the beautiful Møns Klint ("The White Cliffs of Møn"); probably the island's most popular attraction.
Stege, the largest town on the island of Møn, is situated app. at the centre point of the island at the mouth of Stege Nor, a lake which connects directly to the sea. The town has a great deal of charm with historic buildings, a marina and several restaurants and cafes. The very popular annual "Stege Festival" takes place every Tuesday in July, and the first Tuesday in August.
In June 2017, UNESCO designated Møn as Denmark's first biosphere reserve, consisting of "a series of islands and islets in the southern Baltic Sea, over approximately 45,118 hectares (131,890 acres). Its landscapes include woodlands, grasslands, meadows, wetlands, coastal areas, lakes, ponds and steep hills.)
