Travel Spotting: The Moses Bridge

Written by Gary

Just when I was losing faith in the possibility that the bible stories I read in my childhood were myths, something Β comes along and reinvigorates my faith. The Moses bridge was build in the early 1700’s to protect the Netherlands from invasion by France and Spain. (Spain I understand, but does France even have a military? Were they afraid of being attacked by croissants and chain-smokers?)

Fort de Roovere was surrounded by a moat that served to keep enemies out. Now that the Netherlands have come to their senses, the bridge is used to attract tourists and prove that Moses probably just knew a really good carpenter. It might be a good place to check off your list of things you have seen in your travels.
