It was that time of the year again, to spend a full week of in-person time with fellow Niteans in an amazing city!

This time, we chose Marrakesh, the cultural & cuisine capital of Morocco, one of my favorite travel destinations. We stayed in a private guest house in the medina, the ancient walled city-center of winding narrow streets full of merchants, repair shops, food stalls and more.

As is usual, we had a few talks lined up at the beginning of the week, followed by more loosely organized workgroups later on. One of the most demanding one was coming up with a fair and inclusive Salary System. Personally, I had doubts it can even be done, but I was proven wrong.

To break up days of sitting around and talking, we booked a private yoga class every day before lunch, which was absolutely critical in keeping us sane.

And we took a stressful at first, but fun once we got used to it, bike tour through the medina. We finished the week off with a proper downhill tour in the Atlas mountains!

Looking forward to seeing everyone in Ljubljana this July, at our summer IRL and the traditional barbecue party!
