Østerlars Church (which is the largest round church on Bornholm - built in the 1100s). The round churches are thought to be connected to the Knight's Templar which is really fascinating to imagine (and maybe my imaginings involve Nicolas Cage and Tom Hanks). It was a fascinating building that was so beautiful and the gardens were beautiful too. I also got some pretty watercolor paintings there of the four round churches on Bornholm that I want to frame in our next house.

Then we kept going towards the tip of the island to Hammershus (northern Europe's largest medieval fortress).

this picture taken in 2006 from the last time I was in Europe with my brothers, Stephen and Marcus. I am very embarrassed at my pathetic jumping skills (it's considered a jump as long as you can slip a dime under there, so I think I barely made the cut). We were trying to do the exact same jumping pose as the last time so that's my excuse . . . and I'm sticking to it.
And another awesome jumping picture in front of the ruins because it's really fun.
Jay as they looked at the view of the ocean from the ruins. No, but really, he was cracking his back. Why do guys love to do that, or is it just my family? Then we had a picture taken of my parents and most of our siblings (missing a couple who had already gone on ahead of us).
