Vital team days out… but with a bit of a difference. On the opportunities that we have as a team to take a day (or two!) to ourselves, we try and get ourselves to somewhere we can find some fresh inspiration and see what we can do and see in 24 hours. We have already taken on Amsterdam and last year we decided to take on Paris.
Whilst we know 24 hours to see both cities is never going to be enough, we have outlined the highlights of our trip below for a whistle stop tour, we think we smashed it. Feel free to take ideas, write down restaurant names and districts or just take on the whole tour… the world is your oyster as they say.
