We left Berlin today - quite the crew of people and luggage navigating a tram, a S-Bahn and then an ICE Train to Wolfsburg. We made it without issue even if there was some close up and personal time with all the Berlin commuters on the S-Bahn!
The VW tour was very cool. Ways you knew we were in Germany and not the US.... (1) no safety glasses (first time I have ever toured without them) and (2) the driver of our little "VW Golf" train floored it a couple of times and we zipped thru the plant - all done just for fun. US lawyers would never have let either of these happen.
We have more to tell but it is late and I have limited internet connection. So we will update things tomorrow.
