Vacay coming up!

Less than 8 hours before I will check out from Scania, and have 4 well earned weeks of vacation. I am on my 7th week here at Scania and honestly, this vacation couldn’t come any sooner. Don’t get me wrong, I adore my group at RBRF and am very happy and satisfied with my summer […]

The first SSI weekend
