Quoting Mel.

I have never yet had a reason, to find out exactly where the centre point of Europe is. :)

Makes it easier to hang pictures. ;)

My father always says the following:

"Loosdrecht is in the centre of the Netherlands,
the Netherlands is in the centre of Europe,
Europe is in the centre of the world,
by this logic, Loosdrecht must be the centre of the world"

He'd also use a similar logic to explain that all roads lead to Loosdrecht.

I think you have to know how tiny Loosdrecht is to appreciate this humour completely :)

I think it you probably calculated according to his reasoning, it would end up on the front doorstep of our then house, so basically in Nieuw Loosdrecht :)

Not sure the new owners would appreciate that much :) Just take a picture of 'St. Annepad'. It's right off 'de Nieuw Loosdrechtse Dijk'....

The centre of Europe - or anything else - is wherever you want it to be
