Vals on Tour

It’s that time of the year at Montagu Evans HQ for the annual departmental away-day. On 27th November 2014 the graduates of Professional Services found themselves on board a (free) flight to the inimitable city of Budapest – our chosen destination.

Upon arrival we were bundled into cabs and taken on a rollercoaster ride through the chaotic Hungarian highway system.  The ride was worth it, however, when we arrived at the fantastic Intercontinental Hotel, a luxurious spot famed for its river views, outrageous minibar prices and 4.5 star rating on TripAdvisor.

Bags dumped, we proceeded to a nearby bar where we were able to enjoy insightful and entertaining chats with the more senior members of the Partnership over a few jars. Pre-drinks over, we dashed back to the hotel for a rapid costume change before heading to the illustrious restaurant The Spoon.

3 courses (and a few aperitifs) later, Professional Services took things to the next level and visited one of the local discotheques where everyone from graduates to the partners hit the d-floor until the early hours.

The following day was a more timid affair as several of the department flew home early leaving the hardcore to explore the city. And explore it we did. First-timers set about visiting the many tourist attractions that the city had to offer, such as St. Stephen’s Basilica, Buda Castle, the Hungarian Parliament Building, whereas the more seasoned travellers amongst us pottered around in the Baltic conditions until the pretence of a culture trip terminated and Hungarian goulash and vino came calling.

As soon as the trip had begun, 5pm on day 2 was upon us and 8 more members were shuttled in the death cab to the airport. 

Around 10 of the flock spent a further night in the city, enjoying an Italian dinner and then another night on the town. I’m sure they all had a super time.

In conclusion, and conclude I will, it was an excellent trip and a great way to spend time with colleagues out of the working environment. This is one of the many reasons I love Monty's - as well as working hard, we have a great time socialising. Bring on the next trip!
