Staff Seminar 2013 – Celtic Dinner

This is the ninth in a series of blogg posts from the seminar being written by the participants themselves.


Just before the Ending Ceremony of our Goose Network Staff Seminar, our hosts gave to us an amazing surprise: a “Celtic Dinner” in the Celtic House. It was an amazing dinner that left us with our bellies filled and our mouths wide open with amazement.

They prepared the dinner like in the old times. We started the dinner with an aperitif of Luxembourg champagne and a special beer Celtic, one that only exists in two places in the world, and we were at one of those places. Waiting for the dinner, Maj put on a little theatre show for all of us that we found very funny.

Already at the table at ready to eat, we started with soup made of wild garlic and for the main meal had red deer steaks with a typical Luxembourgian dumplings, and a great salad, always accompanied by regional drinks.

After the dinner we gathered around the fire and made a toast to all the staff and the planning team, saying THANK YOU for all that they did for us this weekend. With this the Planning Team gave us to all the badge of the Goose Network Staff Seminar and a special gift to the Camp staff.

After a nice time around the bonfire with Tristan playing the guitar, we had hung out and shared our histories. In this way, we closed a great day and a great seminar where all of us learned and shared a lot of information about our centres and other things. Next year the
seminar will be in Vassarö and we hope we can all meet again then to have great time again.

Monday was the day to say goodbye to everyone and to Luxembourg. With some delays to get out of bed but always with the eyes on the clock we started to say goodbye to old and new friends. Some of us had the opportunity to go see the special Easter market in the city; it’s held only once per year.

With no more words to describe, we only can say thank you all for the people we met, the good times we had together, and the things we learned. See you next year in Vassarö! (
