Shireburn 35th Anniversary Staff Trip – Gozo
November 5, 2018
As part of its 35th Anniversary celebrations, Shireburn Software treated its team to a day trip to Gozo, on Saturday 13th October. The event was organised by Shireburn’s very own social committee which is made up of representatives from each department.
Inspite of bad weather with heavy rainfall that morning, we braved the elements. We had an early start catching the 9am ferry to Mgarr (Gozo), and then headed to Xlendi for a much-needed coffee. We then made our way to the world-famous Cittadella, which has recently undergone a process of preservation and restoration. Here, we had the opportunity to visit the Gozo Museum of Archaeology, the Gran Castello Historic House, the Gozo Nature Museum, the Old Prison and we saw the video at the Citadel Visitor Centre. This was an interesting experience, especially for first-time visitors like myself.
Our next stop was at Ta’ Mena Estate, where we were treated to a tour of the premises and abundant food and wine tasting of the owners’ produce. For dessert, Daniel and myself were surprised with a birthday cake!
Later that afternoon, with full bellies and all smiles, we departed in high spirits and set off on our journey back home. Thanks to management and all social committee organisers for a wonderful treat, and to everyone for the enjoyable company! Looking forward to the next activity.
