My love of history continues to live regardless of the crazy business school schedule. I miss the glorious days of 2016, when I was on a sabbatical and hopped across continents. However, in the little time that I have, my fascination with historical monuments and ruins takes priority and the first international trip from Spain that I planned, took me to Pompeii. For those who do not know much about Pompeii, read on to be...
