europe | DREILÄNDERECK
The Vaalserberg is the location of the tripoint between Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands and its summit is therefore referred to as Drielandenpunt (“Three-Country Point”) in Dutch, or Dreiländereck (“Three-Country Corner”) in German, or Trois Frontières (“Three Borders”) in French.
an amazing place to see from the ground, but the view from atop a tower is spectacular. of course you have the option of taking an elevator to the top, but it didn’t occur to me how windy it would be taking the stairs. it also didn’t occur to me that i still have some issues with heights when i can see the ground beneath me getting farther and farther away. regardless, we made it to the top and i was grateful to have walked up on my own. each day facing a fear [even a small one] is a day moving forward.
but we definitely took the elevator down..
