Lapland, February 2020


72Hours Reload started out as a crazy idea during a walk in the woods near Brussels. This April, Elke Jeurissen & Veerle Pappaert celebrate their 10th edition in Portugal, the place where it all started. Thank you to the 280 inspiring ladies that came along, shared their stories, help each other forward. An invisible thread connects us all, across backgrounds, countries, expertise, age or color.

“Last week, we visited Lapland. Mother nature needs her daughters and her daughters reloaded by her beauty, silence, space and fresh air.”
