3 days in the beautiful Zlatibor, Serbia

In a digital age, when communication tools have evolved to a stage where direct human contact is no longer needed to transfer data, a laughter, look or touch can still mean a lot more than 100 pages of text or a million pictures. We chose to spend 3 days in the beautiful Zlatibor and tighten the bonds between us in the best possible way. Live.

Last month our beloved Caci (HR Manager) organized a memorable travel to the fabled Zlatibor, about 500 km away from Skopje.

The fun started from the beginning of the trip thanks to Martina and Arijan and their karaoke duets in the bus. Upon arrival each of the teams had a presentation to show what they do and inform everyone of the ongoing projects. The point of the presentations was to make everyone aware of what other people are working on, share their experience and inform everyone of the coolest things in each project. And yes, it seems that people don’t know what the others do, although we spend whole days together in the office.

The next day was reserved for games and activities. We were split up in three teams, with each team having a Team Leader. Playing “teambuilding games” is actually more fun than you would imagine, seeing your colleagues blindfolded in a row, moving like a snake is priceless, unforgettable experience, I promise.

Among other activities we also took some time to look at the sights of the beautiful Zlatibor, visited a local “kafana” (a must when you are in Serbia), ate some of the best local food (Kaymak and Prosciutto) and we also took a tour with buggies and ATVs, where the competitiveness came into play, making it so much more fun and exciting.

 

 

Of course everything wouldn’t have been so much fun if we didn’t involve some competitive spirit in the games, so there were different prizes for each of the teams, depending on their results at the end of the day. After the final count of the results, the table looked like so:
