In recognition of Al's contribution to the company Jemmac were delighted to send Alistair and wife Charlotte on an all expenses paid trip to Venice to enjoy some late summer sun, whilst sampling some of Europe's best food, beverages and culture!
Speaking after the trip, Alistair said:
Venice was not somewhere either of us had been before, and everyone who goes there seems to rave about it, so we settled on that. Having now been, I can thoroughly recommend it - it's such a unique place to visit.
Highlights were the Doge Palace, St. Mark's Basilica and we even went to an art gallery (people who know me would be surprised by that!). All that sightseeing was hungry and thirsty work - thankfully Venice has more than it's fair share of bars and restaurants catering for weary tourists. Due to its location, seafood plays a big part in the local cuisine, which was perfect because I love seafood. Grilled octopus and Swordfish Rigatoni being two particularly delicous dishes that were sampled.
We also fitted in a visit to a glass factory on the island of Murano where we saw a glassmaker create a glass Ferrari horse in 60 seconds! Even more incredibly, it was then discarded to be melted down and made into something else.
All too soon, it was time to get back into the water taxi and head back out to the airport for the flight home. It was a lovely weekend away, and Charlotte and I would like to thank Jemmac for giving us this opportunity.
A big thanks from all at Jemmac to Alistair and Charlotte for all their support over the last fifeen years and here's to many more!
