STYLIGHT goes to the U.S

Stylight was established in Munich and has since operated from only the German HQ. However, to satisfy their ongoing expansion plans, the company has launched a brand new US website and are opening a second Stylight office in central New York. The US market has huge opportunities for business development, however it is an extremely competitive market and so Stylight have spent a long time ensuring they are fully prepared for the launch.

To celebrate this exciting news, Stylight threw an American themed party last week! The office was decorated with Amercian flags and streamers and we ate a buffet style dinner, featuring hot dogs, pancakes and of course, beer! Everyone at Stylight got involved with the celebrations and enjoyed a game of beer pong, or two!

Although I have been in Munich for almost 2 months now, I still feel like a newbie and events like this really help to take your mind off home!

Sunny Sundays in the Englischer Garten

Sundays in Munich can be very quiet; all shops, bars and restaurants are closed! So, I guess most people head to a park or if the weather is nice, a Biergarten. I've always heard great things about Munich's Englischer Garten, which apparently is based on London's Hyde Park. Luckily, this garden was very close to my apartment so I thought it would be silly not to go!

 When I finally got there, I found vast green areas, woodland, streams and lots of people :) As I walked further a field I was drawn by the sounds of a Bavarian band which we're playing from the top of the Chinese tower (below). It was nice to see so many people enjoying the sunshine and some giant beers (of course!)
