☀️ Circles Takes on Tenerife: A Remote Working Adventure ☀️
Ever wondered what it’s like to swap the familiar sights of Helsinki for the sun-soaked landscapes of Tenerife? Well, that’s exactly what we did! Eleven enthusiastic Circlesians embarked on an exciting remote working journey to Tenerife, and we’re here to spill the beans on this unforgettable experience.
On the brisk morning of November 3rd, our adventurous squad hopped on a 6-hour flight, buzzing with excitement. Destination? The warm, welcoming arms of Tenerife South Airport. As we bid adieu to Helsinki’s chill, the anticipation for sun, sea, and software development (yes, we love our work!) grew.
Our Tenerife Home
Our home for the week? A stunning villa, complete with several guest houses and a sparkling pool – the perfect setting for both work and relaxation. Nestled in the heart of Santa Ursula’s vibrant landscape, this villa was more than just a place to stay; it was a haven for creativity and collaboration.
A Day in the Life
Embracing the time difference, our days started early, with keyboards clicking and ideas flowing as the sun rose. We wrapped up work in the early afternoon, leaving us ample time to soak in Tenerife’s splendor. The blend of focused work and leisure was just right – a testament to the Circles way of balancing hard work with well-deserved fun.
It wasn’t all work and no play! Our team ventured into local towns, immersing ourselves in the culture and vibrancy of Tenerife. The highlight? Hiking up the majestic Mount Teide. Each step brought new wonders, from breathtaking views to bonding moments with teammates.
Building the Circles Community
This trip was more than just a change of scenery; it was a chance to strengthen the bonds within our Circles family. Sharing experiences, from morning coffees by the pool to laughter-filled evenings, we not only worked together but grew together.
As we boarded our flight back to Helsinki, we carried with us not just memories of the sun and sights but a renewed sense of community and collaboration. This Tenerife trip was a testament to Circles’ commitment to fostering a dynamic, supportive, and adventurous work culture.
Thank you, Tenerife, for the sun, the sights, and the inspiration. Until next time!
