When I started here at Touchwork two years ago, I joined up just in time to make the big Spintelligent (of which Touchwork was then still a part) year-end function which involved the hiring of a bus, taking it all the way through to Darling, and then enjoying a supper and show with South African satirist extraordinaire, Pieter-Dirk Uys. Pretty awesome stuff.
Then of course Touchwork broke free and so last year we started all the way down at the bottom in terms of year-end shenanigans, with a simple lunch mixed in with some Secret Santa for hoots. Of course, this means we can only go up from here and this year we were treated with something I thought was pretty awesome – and had never done before – a water taxi trip departing from Kalk Bay harbour, destination Simon’s Town, followed by lunch at the Meeting Place and then a return boat ride all the way back!
So on Wednesday the 1st of December 2010 (the day marking the beginning of my third year here at Touchwork), the entire team piled into the nearest staff cars that were available (remember, I still park a good 10 minutes walk away from our offices!) and off we went to Kalk Bay, via the beautifully scenic Boyes Drive, where we met the brightly painted yellow and black water taxi happily awaiting us in the harbour.
