To celebrate Sven von der Heyden’s 15th Anniversary in Poland, on May 15 Von der Heyden Group and Friends as well as employees of the closely related Poznan based company Probuild set out for an unforgettable week on the Maldives, one of the most beautiful places of the world.
Blue ocean, white beaches, coconut trees and wonderful underwater adventure let everyone slow down, relax and enjoy the great team spirit.
Those who had never dived before had a chance to complete a professional diving course to dive with sharks, turtles, tuna and snappers, as well as innumerable turquoise triggers and millions of other colorful fish. And we loved it! Some of us were lucky to see the biggest and least dangerous shark – the brown spotted whale shark and huge mantas. The more experienced divers made an exciting night dive at the Elladhoo House Reef an admired life under water in the light of the torches.
We spent a week on two boats – Baani Explorer and Carina, cruising among picturesque islands and looking for the most beautiful reefs. We stepped ashore to visit paradise islands and taste coconut milk, sunbathe on golden beaches and swim in unbelievably blue sea. On a small desert island we were invited for a wild island party and tasted specialties of local cuisine, as well as danced to the sounds of drums and Malaysian songs. We also lost a football game to a team of our local guides…. We were sinking in the sands…..
It was an adventure of a lifetime for most of us, and a challenge, but most of all it was a great occasion to get to know each other even better and the foretaste for the next expeditions……
