Hint: this one is hard.
that wasn’t really a hint. don’t look into that.
Recommended hint order:
#3, #1, #2
I was going on hint 3, google says there’s a Hilux 1 in Meeuwen-Gruitrode, since that is a first generation Toyota Hilux https://www.google.com/maps/place/Hilux+1+BvBafirstname.lastname@example.org,5.5218877,19z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x47c0d6f86b50330f:0xe8591c91930edad1
Mike named the photo toyota.png, so I’m assuming Toyota is important here, and that image comes up on the first page of Google image search of “old toyota truck” and “old toyota hilux”.
Oh jeez. I have no idea what the second two hints are about.
Adolphe Sax was born in Belgium (where you were), then moved to Paris where he invented the saxophone, and that’s where he’s buried. So, “the inventor of the sax without his instrument” would literally mean that he’s physically in Paris, France (assuming he isn’t buried with a saxophone, of course).
And a trajectory of Amsterdam-Bruges-Paris makes sense. And you can’t be too obvious about Paris, since it’s a well-known city. So, without really anything else to go on, I’m going to say Paris.
But I have no idea what an old Toyota pickup and an iPhone case have to do with anything…
Nope. Not Paris.
Don’t think too hard on hint 3. It’s a pointer.
Hint 1 is the best hint of the group.
Hint 2 is a pretty terrible hint.
I would read “the inventor of the sax without his instrument” to possibly imply before he invented the saxaphone (or where he was born…)
Oh, Dinant is pretty!
Not Dinant! What a beautiful place though! Next time perhaps we’ll consider this destination.
Oh jeez. I had an epiphany that I can’t believe we didn’t get Hint #3 yet. It’s so OBVIOUS. You said “Hi, Luxembourg!” Duh. I feel so dumb. RIGHT THERE. Hilux hilux hilux.
Did you figure out the other two clues?
