Landscapes of Twenthe

I love the region were i was born, and it is known as Twenthe.
This region is in the east of the Netherlands. It is situated near the German Border.
I love the green scenery and the side-scene landscape.
Small meadows, surrounded by trees.
My region has its own language, which is a kind of Saxon.
And also we have a lot of rituals. These rituals are very much alive.
For example in the autumn the "witte wieven" ( white wives)kidnap the young eligible men!
And as legend can go, one wonders if they ever come back to this earthly world.
