Midnight is a bit late although last night co-hosting #TTOT it was 1 AM 1 July when I got to bed but I only received your invite at midnight 1 July. It's now midday 1 July. Tonight I'm co-hosting #AdvTravelChatI  with Laurel (saved your Munich audio to listen to). I will definitely watch the replay. Best to you, Sonja
