As a remote-based company, we understand the importance of coming together and building strong bonds despite the distance. That's why our company offsites are the highlight of every summer!

Gathering from across the globe, our diverse team traveled all the way from Germany, Australia, Canada, Armenia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Taiwan, Czech and the US to unite at the panoramic Terassa's Campus La Mola. With excitement and anticipation, we were all set to kick off our unforgettable Softr Offsite in beautiful Barcelona, Spain! 🌍✈️🇪🇸

Day 1: Arrival and a reunion

We started the offsite by checking into our cozy hotel and having a reunion! After settling into our rooms, we had a delicious lunch at the hotel and some free time to get to know our fellow Softrians. The day ended with a delightful dinner and fun-filled board games to break the ice and get into the offsite spirit!

It was a fantastic opportunity to understand where we are heading as a company and the incredible impact we can make together.

To balance our minds and souls, we embarked on a refreshing hike in Montseny Natural Park, creating cherished memories in nature!
