Tourguide Meeting Spring 2011

Wednesday, April 20, 2011 | Jens Ruprecht | News

In the center of the universe, the annual tour guide meeting took place. 40 tour guides from Germany, Austria and Italy met to discuss the upcoming touring season.

We had a great program:

2 days the new Tourguides

2 days everybody(around 40 people!)

2 days the "old Tourguides!"(motorcycle ride to Italy)

Here some impressions:

"the old guys" walking to the Picnic location... where Ursula and Manuel prepared lunch with all the new folks:

maybe the best cookies...

Everybody looks happy, guys - it was a great Picnic!!!

Of course we had a lot of sessions in 2 classrooms, first aid course, talks about new ideas, the program 2012 and so on...

And then we had a training of the world famous:

Edelweiss Riding School

Everything okay!!!

Saturday night we had to try some local "Schnaps"... and after some slide shows about several trips to South Africa, New Zealand and Patagonia we had to celebrate the "Tourguides od the year 2010":

Jens, Ursula and Frank - Congratulations!!!

Sunday morning some more classroom sessions, then a quick lunch and finally a motorcycle ride over the Brenner Pass into Italy - what a day...

somewhere close to Bolzano

Markus, Viktoria and Caroline

We spent two nights in Italy, had a couple of nice motorcycle rides, beautiful weather and of course a lot of fun! Of course it is something special to see all the tourguides together, normally we are all on the road - somewhere...

Some more impressions:

Rainer and Gaby

beautiful roads...

and by the way... it is quite useful to ride a Ducati - look why:

ideal for a coffee stop... but even better:

the girls love you!!!

Some last words... it is always hard to say goodbye, but I really have to tell you, it is something special to work for Edelweiss Bike Travel. It is a hard job to be a tourguide, but most of the time it is a lot of fun too!

Thanks for beeing a great team!!!

What a fun time you had with your tour group and you had one of those fantastic picnics. I sure wish I had been there. Congratulations to Ursula and Jens. You are both "ONES" in our group.
Hope to ride with Edelweiss again. Scouting South America would be a great trip.
Hope to see you guys sooner than later. Regards, Rob
