https://bloganuary.files.wordpress.com/2021/12/fb-daily-prompt-jan-27.png In the summer of 2019, I took a 4 month vacation in Germany.

Sonntag = Ruhetag
Ruhe is a German word that literally translates to Peace. So Yes. Sunday is Rest Day. I do not know about the rest of Europe, but in Germany hardly anything is open on a Sunday. In addition to religeous reasons this is also for taking the interest of workers into consideration! How awesome is that?… Continue reading Sonntag = Ruhetag
