Hotel decorated in style (ouch!)
The weather was nice, sunny and warm (~15° C, much
better than in cold Germany). So we went out for a walk in
order to do some serious shopping (tie, shoes) in order to save the
spanish economy. In one street, nice knitting decorations
could be seen...
When we came back, the hotel was already 'captured' by Swatch...
...and the inscription for the club event was about to
begin at 6pm.... Rahel and her new team (more about this
later) friendly greeted all new arriving club members.
A photo was taken by each and every club member, we
received a very nice custom made "Swatch Pass" later during the
event. A great idea!
No big dinner on the first evening... A "walking dinner" was served, so it was great to have the chance to talk to a lot of people that we hadn't seen for a few months (sometimes year[s]).
Reto Stöckli (COO of Swatch) gave a friendly welcome
speech and he gave us a few details about the upcoming event and
also about the recent changes at Swatch The Club.
Enid and Sabina had left the club in the last months
:-( (we sadly miss both of them). But as life has to go
on, Reto presented the new team of Swatch The Club Intl.
Julia, Rahel, Guisy
On Friday morning, three open double decker buses took
us out to a sightseeing tour of Madrid, separated by languages
(English, German, French, Italian).
The buses (and many other things during the event) were 'branded' in style...
We first went to the North of Madrid and stopped at
the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, home of the famous soccer club Real
to read page 2 ("A visit to Estadio Santiago Bernabéu") of my
Madrid Xmas 2012 Event report.
Back to Stay tuned to Swatch.
