Dreiländereck

There is a place close to Aachen called "Dreiländereck" (in English, the Three Countries Corner) where Holland, Belgium and Germany meet in one point.
Landscape is amazing all around, very nice forests, quiet atmosphere, fat and tall cows and - this Sunday - also sunny and warm.
Anyway, what I really do like of this place is that you can look for traces of a border as long as you want but you will find nothing at all. Sometimes you can get confused and don't know in what country you are and, in such moment, it is when you say to yourself: "and ... who cares in what country I am?"
