Last week, the entire Jimdo crew got together for an adventure: a company field trip! Just like two years ago, everyone went off to Neuwerk, an island off the northern cost of Germany. Those of you who have been using Jimdo for a little longer may remember our fun tour in 2008. Just one small difference, instead of 15 stalwart adventurers, there were 30! Sadly, this one lone Jimdo outpost in Philadelphia couldn't make it to the fun :( But I did enjoy following along the adventures via Twitter and photos!
In what's now a time-honored tradition, the outing kicked off with at Fridtjof's in Cuxhaven with an evening of grilling, singing, and tons of fun. The next morning, the still sleepy but merry
bunch hiked about 7.5 miles through the mudflats to Neuwerk. The weather wasn't so cooperative , but as our hardy adventurers didn't let a bit of rain and wind keep them from reaching the island!
They were greeted with the customary pea soup and proceeded to the accommodations for the night - a farm/hotel where you can "sleep in the hay". A few folks took the chance right away to try it
out and napped to recover from the hike while the others played Kubb, flew kites, or explored the little island (not much more than
1 square mile). Later, everyone got back together in the evening to feast on hot dogs and hang out in the hay.
The next morning, it was time for the tired but happy bunch to trek back through the mud flats -- but this time under the smiling sun! Different carpools assembled themselves and headed back to Hamburg... and the next day, everyone was talking about how well they slept in their own beds. :)
It was a great time, see you all next year!
