I’ve been to Stonehenge in England once, many years ago. I’ve also wandered about the UK a little bit, about which I might write sometime. So I confess to a certain partiality for the British countryside. I have a soft spot for the random Roman ruins and bits of technology in surprising places. And the mounds and lonely standing stone circles, marked invitingly on ordinance maps.

So obviously when I discovered my home country has megaliths too – and in my own birth state at that – I had to go see!

My story of tracking down some megalith site locations in Melaka from pieces of doubtful information collated from the internet in two languages, has been published by Travelicious!

Check it out and happy hunting!

    These places always have this irresistible mystery charm. You can’t help but think how their ordinary day to day lives for them, seem so exciting to us.

  2. We love to reading post like yours, you have an original way to write. We have started to consider Melaka as part of our travel list :)

      Do! Weave in time as well. It’s not easy to take in culture otherwise – you’ll only get the culture of the towns and cities (which is still great! I mean, UNESCO Heritage!), but that’s such a small part, and historically migrant-dominant, part of the country.

    We visited a megalithic site near Evora in Portugal. The history of these places is amazing. Its a shame only Stonehenge gets all the publicity

      I don’t know why such sites aren’t more sought after. It would be convenient to have them regularly featured in travel guides, because this traveller wants to know! Maybe I’m a bit odd haha
