After an intense year developing an exciting new product (shhhhh… it’s a big secret, you’ll find out soon), The SimilarGrop Team took a day off from the world of algorithms, web ranking and categorization to go climbing.
As much as we love our jobs, every so often it’s nice to go back to nature, look at the sky and see what Mother Earth has to offer – and we certainly did! Ok, so we didn’t really climb Mount Everest but it felt like it. We didn’t climb man-made structures but 100% real rocky mountains.
It wasn’t easy but it was fun and you know what they say… no pain, no gain. We were also lucky to have a fantastic instructor who took us through all the health and safety regulations and gave us all the gear: helmets, harnesses, climbing shoes, etc and voila! There were different levels of difficulty depending on which side of the rock we chose to climb and we all did really well (or at least that’s what our instructor said!).
We finished off the lovely spring day with a great lunch at a local restaurant where we proudly compared our bruises. We were then awarded very cool company shirts to reward our efforts at the end the adventure.
Some of us are still feeling the pain in our muscles but all of us look forward to the next SimilarGroup Fun Day.
