Belgium: Dinant

The beauty of Europe, especially living in Brussels, is that in an hour’s drive you could be exploring a pretty little town or go into the nature.  It was a cloudy Saturday, we left only at 4 in the afternoon, and I even fell asleep during the drive.  One hour later, I got up and found we were SURROUNDED by greenery on all sides.  It was beautiful.

This is the saxaphone museum.
Had no idea the saxaphone was invented in Belgium! Seems strange!
Would never have guessed
