Happy August and welcome to the 50th issue of ‘How Curious!’ 5️⃣ 0️⃣ 🎊
This newsletter started as a 2018 New Year resolution! 3.5 years later, it’s safe to say the resolution has stuck. 💪
After a memorable 5+ months in Gran Canaria I’m back in Ireland for a few weeks. As the most liveable place I’ve ever been to, Gran Canaria currently pips Barcelona and London for the most likely location I’ll settle down. 🏖️
Having gotten the one-shot Janssen vaccine I’m looking forward to catching up with family and friends before my next adventures. 🇮🇪💉

So, what have you learned?
The pandemic has killed millions, confined billions to lockdowns, and impacted almost every facet of our lives.
But what have you learned from it? How has it changed your views and beliefs? How will your life change when ‘normality’ returns?
If you haven’t already done so, then now is a great time to reflect. What are your take-aways from what is likely to be one of the biggest (hopefully!) global shocks of our lifetime?
I’ve been thinking about this a lot. I hope to include a post on my learnings in next month’s newsletter.
In the meantime, please let me know your main learnings!
