I spent a week in the northern Netherlands, travelling around the province of Drenthe for the most part. I spent much of my time going to different villages in this rural area. Of course, trying the local food was a big part of my experience. These images are largely from Ellert en Brammert, an open-air museum in Schoonoord showing the way people lived in Drenthe at the time of the peat digging. It was named after a myth about the two giants Ellert and Brammert who prowled around the Ellertsveld.
