Every year, my boss invites his department head team on a little pre-Christmas trip somewhere outside of Berlin. This trip has become a tradition we all look forward to. It is a thank you to us, to wrap up the year, to spend time together, and to explore the areas outside of Berlin. In 2016, we went to the beautiful city of Leipzig in Saxony. For me, this was a special treat as I spent two years of my life in Leipzig when I started in this industry. I went to the Hotel and Catering College in Leipzig for my hospitality degree many moons ago and enjoyed my time back then. I had not been back much, so I was very much looking forward to this trip.
