DP on a nice weekend in Dresden!
On Friday 4th of July it was finally time for DP’s big annual summer event. A weekend in beautiful Dresden.
At 12 am, on a lovely and warm summer day, the bus to Dresden arrived outside our office in Berlin. This, indeed meant working less than half a day ;) The short, yet comfortable ride took us to our hostel in Dresden where we had time to settle down in our rooms before leaving for our first event in a beer garden close to the Elbe.
Shortly after it was time to watch the World Cup match between Germany and France. Luckily, as we all know, the game ended up as it should. Victory for Germany, and of course more beer. The evening continued with another exciting game between Brazil and Colombia, while we enjoyed some nice food from the various dishes available. Eventually the evening ended with some satisfied, yet tired DP’ers… at least for some of us.
Saturday began with a big, relaxing breakfast at the hostel, until 11 am when it was time for the second trip of the weekend. A nice boat trip up the beautiful River Elbe.
A part from drinks, lunch and laughs the boat trip also offered a nice view of the valley and fairytale houses looking like castles. After a nice long trip up the Elbe, the boat took us back to the port, where we had time to do a little bit more sightseeing as well as getting ready for the cool and relaxed Puro Beach Club.
At the Puro Beach Club our VIP lounge awaited. With seats in the sand and a drink in our hands we watched Argentina against Belgium on a huge screen. After the first game dinner was served, followed by some more refreshing drinks and of course another game. It was time for Netherlands vs Costa Rica, a very important game for the Dutch members of our team.
As if the evening wasn’t already good enough the Puro Lounge slowly turned into a big night club, with several different dance floors, both indoors and outdoors. The party went on, and on…and on until finally coming to an end in the small hours of Sunday morning.
After a few hours of sleep and some breakfast the weekend sadly came to its end. A calm, yet surprisingly pleasant ride back to Berlin brought an end to our summer trip of 2014.
A big thanks to everyone who took part and made this a fantastic experience!
