On Thursday the 15th of September we enjoyed a private boat tour through the Malmö waters. The weather was absolutely perfect for this time of year, and the trip was made complete drinks and refreshments on board.
After the boat trip our speaker for the evening, René Heunen, took us through his journey in creating the Book a Boot business together with his co-founder, Gustav Wilderström, which raised some good questions . With some warm tomato soup and stimulating discussion, the evening was a great way to enjoy the last rays of sun before we set off into autumn.
