It has been 243 days since I arrived here at Purdue to complete my 2-year MBA. 243 days, that is the equivalent to 20,995,200 seconds, each of which a weight sat on my chest.

Wolfsburg was a quick three hour trip to visit the Volkswagen (VW) headquarters/factory/museum. It was a quaint city where you can definitely see the VW stamp. VW employs about 53,000 people and the name is all over the town on the museum, city arena, hockey arena, and soccer stadium.
Since my last update, I've traveled to Prague, London, Brussels, and Amsterdam. This week, I plan on seeing the VW factory and museum as well as Berlin, Germany. It has been a really great trip, and as of today I only have 12 days left in Europe until I am back in the U.S. preparing for graduation from Purdue.
