The first trip of the semester was a stunning success. Although, the day turned out to be cloudy and rainy, a total of seventy two people joined us on this trip, thanks to the strategic planning and tireless efforts of the marketing team of BI. We took the train for an hour-long amazing train journey to Eisenach. The participants came from different parts of the world and we encouraged them to interact with each other. We hiked from the train station to the castle enjoying every bit of our journey to the fullest, chatting, taking pictures and enjoying the nature around us. The tour guide was very kind to allow us to split into two groups as we massively outnumbered the allowed participant limit of 25 people. We enjoyed listening to the guide while strolling through the narrow passages of the old castle. A breathtakingly beautiful canopy of forest was visible from the top of the hill. On our way back, we stopped at an ice cream place in the old city. The responses of the overjoyed participants was truly overwhelming.
