One of the great things about living in Europe is that you don’t have to travel too far from home to see some pretty amazing things. While living in Belfast, I went on a walk one afternoon with a few friends and we visited Giant’s Ring, a henge monument in Belfast. The monument is said to have been built 2700 BC during the Neolithic Period.
It was an absolutely gorgeous walk – there is a trail that connects the woods to the monuments – and you get to walk along the river, see an old town hidden in the hills, and experience Ireland’s beautiful nature. Highly recommended.
It was pretty amazing to visit, but one of the things that shocked me the most about the site was that there were children climbing on the rocks that made up the monument. I don’t know if they were technically allowed to do that, but I couldn’t believe that their parents were letting them regardless.
