I’m back from my trip to Berlin to visit eBay Germany. It was a great week meeting with the teams responsible for eBay Express in the UK & DE.
I have a few more pictures that didn’t make the original post, so I thought it was worth a quick wrap-up post to capture them. In case you missed the original, here is my first post on my trip to Berlin, and here is a second post about the eBay DE offices.
Here are a few pictures of the eBay Germany office. Notice the volleyball court, the small pond & bridge, and the extremely large customer support building. It was a really nice environment, and with nice weather, we were able to take a quick walk around the water after lunch each day.
Here is an impromptu shot of the eBay Express leadership team, with the heads of the US, DE & UK sites.
Lastly, just a few quick shots from the gym at our hotel. The Grand Hyatt in Berlin has a spa on the top floor which is apparently fairly well known. The gym overlooks the whole city, and you look out from the room when running on the treadmills. I took a couple shots at dusk (hence the poor focus) because the views were really great.
Otherwise, that’s it from Berlin. I seem to have avoided jet lag on the trip back, and got to enjoy a really great weekend with Carolyn & the boys.
I now have about 5-6 hours of absolutely crucial television to catch up on, including the last two episodes of Battlestar Galactica, 24, and Rome. The Tivo is a stern task-master.
It’s nice to be home.
