Friday I had the opportunity to work with Carissa at Absolute Adventures again. Carissa is a super cool gal that created a business of FUN! She offers corporate team-building events like the treasure hunt I partook in as well as other events like sailing and wine tasting. I know that I’d be one happy worker if I were to spend the day on a treasure hunt in the sweet town of Palo Alto. Which is what I did. Did you know there are aliens painted on murals throughout the town? Awesome.
Friday’s treasure hunt participants were international employees of Oracle who are working on making programs usable by multiple languages. A day out of the office and into the treasure hunt which involves pop culture & word games was a perfect introduction into American culture.
The hunt consists of clues that lead to more clues that lead to more clues and require a lot of walking, maybe running, around the town center of Palo Alto. It then ends with a lock and key and surprise…like any good treasure hunt. But if I told you more…
Here are a just a few images of the hunt.
