The end of my rotation in the retail agency team tied in perfectly with the team’s annual away day. After a lot of deliberating and a team vote we were off to Amsterdam.
The 12 of us arrived early and were straight off on a city cycle tour; we crossed numerous canals, tried some local beers and quickly peddled through the red light district whilst learning about the history and architecture of Amsterdam.
We relaxed at the rooftop bar of our hotel before boarding our boat for the canal tour, where we saw the city from a different angle. This conveniently dropped us off near the restaurant for dinner, where we had a lovely meal and of course escalated to a good night out!
A few sore heads in the morning resulted in a relaxed day with a long lunch and gentle walk around the canals before we jumped on the plane home.
It was great to celebrate a successful year with the team and to finish my rotation on a high.
