The Netherlands, Germany & Denmark

Day six on the Road to 2021 saw the first really big day of mileage in the Minis, with 715 miles ultimately traveled between Amsterdam in The Netherlands and Copenhagen, Denmark. A good chunk of that was across northern Germany, and it was a memorable day to be there as the nation marked the 30th anniversary of reunification.

 

Our meetings were both conducted in Germany. The team interviewed Sartorius on the outskirts of Hanover, capital of Lower Saxony. Then they moved on to Hamburg and met Marc Technow, a former intern at That's Nice and friend, who recently completeed his Master's Degree in Cologne. The team had to keep moving as they still had the push north into Denmark, finishing in the capital, Copenhagen.
