Where: Munich, Germany
When: 30th of June – 2nd of July
Who: Over 150 German Rotaractors and truly yours from RAC Stockholm Djurgården
What have we been doing: Celebrated the 25th birthday of the host club. Following the instructions of my host Laura who I had never met before, I showed up at the welcome party straight from the airport. While the only unusual prop I had was a suitcase, the majority had traditional Bavarian costumes. The party turned to a New Year’s party once when we realised it’s Rotaract New Year!
The next day started with a cultural activity, a tour of The Residenz museum, a magnificient building of impressive history, while the other groups went for a picnic, hiking or a social activity.
The main point of the weekend, the gala dinner by the lake was a great opportunity to meet old and new friends, exchange experiences, get to know about other charters (unlike in Sweden, there is a plenty of events to join in Germany) , and even learn a few words of German. Or to get reminded of old German hits.
The weekend finished with a traditional Bavarian breakfast, white sausages with honey mustard.
Many thanks to my host Laura, to Flo for a lesson in discrete and less discrete ways of eating white sausages, to Martin and Vincent for all acute translations by the table and finally to the organizers for such a wonderful event. We wish happy anniversary to RAC München Residenz and many successful projects in the following years!
