Leiden and Leiderdorp, Netherlands / April 2017

Our Ester trip included driving from UK, via France and Belgium to Netherlands and Germany to visit our families. We did not take many picures in Germany, but we managed to visit Brussels, Leiden and Leiderdorp:

Leiden is well-known for canal crusies with the lowest bridges on the way. Great experience though !

Brussels, Belgium / April 2017

Atomium is the greatest attraction in Brussels !

It is a building constructed for Expo1958. Designed by the engineer André Waterkeyn and architects André and Jean Polak, it stands 102 m (335 ft) tall. Its nine 18 m (60 ft) diameter stainless steel clad spheres are connected so that the whole forms the shape of a unit cell of an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times. It is now a museum.
