Adolphe Sax Patented Saxophone

What happened on June 28?

Adolphe Sax patents the saxophone in Belgium in 1846 on the same date Iberia was established as Spain’s national airline in 1928.

Two years earlier, in 1926, Mercedes-Benz is formed by Germans Gottlieb Daimler and Karl Benz who merged their two automobile companies.

When South-African entrepreneur Elon Musk was born in 1971, his high-tech brain started forming thoughts to elevate cars to the next level. And maybe soon, he’ll make a move to organize trips to Mars as well.

The Nakhla meteorite, the first one to suggest signs of aqueous processes on Mars, fell to Earth on this day in 1911. So when you travel to Mars, take an umbrella.

For those preferring Earth for their upcoming holiday, we recommend visiting the United Kingdom. A splendid place. And just as rainy as Mars.
Queen Victoria was coronated Queen of the United Kingdom in 1838 and will happily tour you around.

The UK not your cup of tea? No worries, pay a visit to Belgium for some proper fries, beer, and traffic chaos. Local painter Peter Paul Rubens (*1577) and footballer Kevin De Bruyne (*1991) will show you their country’s greatness.

Actors Pat Morita (*1932) and John Cusack (*1966) still seem a little undecided on where to go. If you ever have that feeling, just stay chilling at home and travel by atlas from the couch. And to make you feel better, s canimply call it ‘philosophical traveling’. Deep thinker Jean-Jacques Rousseau (*1712) approves.
