However, the company visit that gave us an in-depth insight about its structure and operations on various organizational levels was an experience that will remain unmatched by any words!
We all like to say: “If I had had more time then I would have read more/ worked out in the gym/ spent more time with friends or family/ participated in social projects/ made a dream come true/ learned new things… “
And then your baby is born…Boom!
