DINANT, BELGIUM ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ช: THE COLLร‰GIALE NOTRE DAME DE DINANT

I love to experience solitude with historical icons.

I sat alone in The Collรฉgiale Notre Dame de Dinant, a gorgeous 13th-century Gothic cathedral situated on the River Meuse, for a good 20 minutes without another soul around. I was able to meditate upon everything Iโ€™m grateful for, one of those things being moments like this, when Iโ€™m utterly alone, apart from the entire human race coexisting with some incredible piece of history in some random part of the world…itโ€™s such a beautiful, weightless feeling.
