Hi <<First Name>>

After all the extensive travel over the last weeks, it's safe to say that we were a bit exhausted. We skipped the gym, slept as much as we could and productivity wasn't as high as we had hoped. But it's ok. It's important to listen to your body and take it slow, so you can re-energize for what's coming next...

The trip we had planned for this weekend couldn't have come at a better time. We're currently in Luxembourg, where we take things easy and simply explore the city of Luxembourg, go for a hike & wine (yes - it's a thing) in the Moselle region of the country and end our weekend with a relaxing spa. No need to always throw yourself off mountains and climb through caves to have a great time, right?!

I'll keep things short and simply wish you a wonderful week, enjoy reading the articles mentioned below and then I'll speak to you again soon. Let me know what you're up to this week and the next!

(This guide will be updated next week!) 

Enjoy the following reads that I collected for you from all around the internet:

The Magnificent Rock-Hewn Churches of Lalibela, Ethiopia

"It’s no wonder that the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela have been awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status and are often referred to as the Eighth Wonder of the World."


Bogarin Trail – Incredible La Fortuna Sloth Tour & Nature Walk

"The Bogarin Trail is one of the best places to see sloths in Costa Rica and it’s a great way to give back to the local community who are working hard to restore the rainforest in the area."
