We stopped today on the small Danish island of Bornholm. Lot’s of pretty beaches and seaside views, but pretty empty this time of year since all the summer tourists are gone. We took a bus ride to a glass-blowing shop started by a guy from Seattle and his Danish wife. They have some very nice stuff, a few pieces of which put a dent into my credit card. Then we were off to see one of the 4 round stone churches the island is famous for. The churches were built in the mid-1100’s by Teutonic Knights. The mystery is why they are so strongly built. In addition to the exterior buttresses you see, there is a massive interior column in the center. Some suggest that they were not originally built as churches but had some massive structure on top of the building. Others think they were just over-engineered churches.
