Annual office excursion to Darjeeing : a revitalizing expedition in nature

February 28 – March 3 2013

The Volumezero design team had recently visited Darjeeling, India on a 5 day trip. Comprising of a 18 member contingent, including the spouses of a few senior members, the office sponsored annual trip was planned for the first time on foreign land.


As part of the office policy of revitalization of the mind for the employees, the annual trip to Darjeeling exposed the Volumezero family to new places, unveiling the vast bank of experiences to be gained through travelling. The timing of the trip was near perfect: a transient time of the year where winter bids goodbye and spring welcomes all.


The road trip began from Dhaka, with a stoppage at Shiliguri, and through the uphill ride towards Darjeeling. The drastic change in temperature was felt from day to night, and the scenic beauty of the hilly landscape full of tea gardens for which Darjeeling is famous enthralled the visitors. The Volumezero team enjoyed through sightseeing and participation in various activities in the land of the 'Gorkha' community. The sunrise from a distance at Tiger hill, the silence and serenity of the Japanese Pagoda, the bustle at the central plaza, the beautiful landscape of the tea gardens as seen from the cable car ride are just a few of the many enjoyable memories experienced by the travellers. The cherry on the cake was the rafting adventure through the 'tista' channel, which, to many, was the most enjoyable part of the trip.


The trip ended though in dramatic circumstances with a challenging return from Darjeeling by road amidst the political turmoil occurring in Bangladesh. Only one phrase could of course describe the annual trip by the Volumezero team going abroad for the first time : a refreshing adventure !!


Add me 2008 and unwinding ever since
