The Routes Europe 2022 conference in Bergen, Norway was originally scheduled for 2020 and due to covid got moved to 2021. That also got moved and finally found it’s resting place in May 2022. Changing flights, accommodation and getting refunds etc was quite a process but we finally made it. Norway has always been on my bucket list as they say so I was super excited to get there at last. Of course things are a little more tricky when traveling from South Africa and our afternoon outbound, domestic flights got changed at the last minute to the sunrise flight so that we could head out to Pretoria to the Vietnam Embassy to try get our Vietnam visas before the next conference in 3-4 weeks time. What this all meant was our starting time at home was Friday 4:30am and arrival at our Bergen apartment on Saturday night at 11:30pm. The joys of travel.
The trip was better than we could have expected and created some unforgettable memories. Here are some images from the trip and conference with comments to help explain them. Enjoy. This is a debrief for me from the trip and a way to digest everything that happened. The events are manic for us and the client so we don’t often get a chance to chat and catch up but at this event we got a moment before finishing on the last day to chat and were happy with all the positive feedback we got and how happy they were with our work. The team is always happy with our work(we know this because we keep getting asked to cover the next event and this is since 2015) but they don’t often get a moment to let us know. A great way to end the conference.
