Taking the ferry to Denmark with work, we were taken by bus to the city of Aalborg. Alborg is the fourth largest city of Denmark and was founded in the Viking age and people settled there around year 600. While I have been to Denmark many times before, when I was younger, I had never visited Aalborg and had high hopes for the town as I had heard many good things of it.
When we showed up in town it was time for team building activities. I am not usually one for these activities, but this one was quite good. We were divided in to teams and given a tablet and we had to walk around town with a map and answer questions and take photos. It was something that every one could take part in even if they are not to sporty and it was a low level bonding with your colleagues.
The team building activities lasted about two hours and we did meet all the other teams as we walked along, solving our tasks and getting to know each other a bit better. Some were a bit more competitive than others, luckily my team was not one of those.
Afterwards we had time to ourselves and I decided to go for a look around the rest of the town, the one that we did not get to see on our walk around with the tablet. And I really liked what I saw, I found Aalborg a very cute town. Architecturally, the city is known for its half-timbered mansions built by its prosperous merchants.
I also took the opportunity to check out some nice shops. There were a few cute local Danish shops that we do not have at home. I got a few small items, but a lot of my colleagues did a lot more shopping than I did. Some of them sure had a lot to carry.
I also made sure to have a few breaks, chatting with the people I met and joined along the way and resting my feet, so I would not get too tired. The European Union apparently concluded a little while ago that the people of Aalborg are the most satisfied in Europe with their city and I would say that I can understand them.
