Spring team building, in the Apuseni mountains

A lovely location, adventure and unforgettable experiences. This is the recipe that we came up with for what we think is the perfect team-building. And we might have got that right looking at the evidence.

The first ingredient that we made sure will give flavour to this event was the place where we we were going to get to know each other better and create long-lasting memories. The village of Rimetea is located at the foothills of Trașcău Mountains offering its visitors an incredible view that left us in awe from the first second we approached the area. Starting with the old houses that kept their architecture over the years, up to the mountains that surround it, the village looks like a surreal place that you wouldn’t want to leave. We chose the Kiraly Vendeghaz pension for our stay where our hosts warmly welcomed us with delicious local food.

Next, we made sure we add some thrill to the mix as teams that go on adventure together, stay together. Thus, on Saturday we decided to go for a hike on Piatra Secuiului coordinated by the team of TAT Association which made sure we are equipped accordingly and led the way up to the top. It was a marvelous and provoking experience as we faced challenges and moments of laugh along the way as well as getting a chance to see the amazing scenery unfolding before our eyes.

We didn’t stop here as we love to explore as many opportunities as possible. On Sunday we decided to throw caution to the wind once again as we embarked on another adventure along with the TAT team. This time we were not going to play small so we went rafting on the Arieș river. Prepared with neoprene clothing, boats and a good dosage of pure excitement we started our 10 kilometer journey down the  stream. Well, we can’t say that we were experts but we did make it to the end successfully. We laughed and worked together as we fell out the boats and tried to fight against the whirling water looking for the next area where we would raise our adrenaline levels once again. The rafting session was an activity that surely made this event an unforgettable one.

All in all, the two days of team building were an experience that definitely got us closer and more efficient as a team. We would do it all again in a heartbeat. Who knows, maybe next time we can come up with something even more thrilling.

Here’s a taste of the awesomeness:

Psst. We’re hiring! Magento devs and front-end devs, QA specialists and PHP devs wanted. Details here.
