This Autumn has marked some major landmarks in Germany. It’s been two decades since the Berlin Wall fell and the Oktoberfest recently saw its 200th jubilee celebrations just a stone’s throw from the Munich office. Fast approaching its first decade Firefly Germany also recently turned nine.
To celebrate the team took to the Inn River in the form of a white water rafting trip in nearby Austria. Plenty of waves were made and Sascha (left) and Volker (right) held the fort at the front and helped steer the crew to safety. Aside from the adrenalin, the trip certainly encapsulated some of the best of Firefly’s values – Ballsy, Blimey and Smile!
