The Time Marking Waffle’s Addiction to IKEA

23 Jan , 2016   Gallery

When you hear the word IKEA, what comes to your mind? Cheap furniture? Nightmares of putting together said-cheap furniture? Minimalist Scandinavian Design? A maze in which you can’t seem to get out of? Richest man in the world? Swedish Meatballs? …or Breakfast during Roadtrips? I’m not new to eating at IKEA, and neither is any of us on […]

The Time We Drank Our Way through Belgium

16 Jan , 2016   Gallery

Ah, Belgium. Ah, Beer. Sometimes I wonder if there’s a correlation between the country’s name starting with a B, and its capital and one of its most well-known tourist spots also starting with a B. The day we arrived in Bruges, the first stop of our roadtrip, it was raining hard and the guys were unprepared for […]

17 Dec , 2015   Gallery

After taking out a week or two of your precious vacation days, carefully planning a trip, booking an expensive ticket to cross one of the great oceans, the worst nightmare any traveller can have is rain – all trip. While it’s raining hard, you can’t live with yourself if you stayed in your hotel all day […]

The Time Some of Us Relayed Trip Planning

12 Dec , 2015   Gallery

It all started when one of my good friends, Matt, finally agreed to my begging of him to come visit me in Paris in 2013 and asked our friend lePMP (you can read it by adding an “i” in your head as we move along this series) to come along. At first neither of us thought lePMP was […]

The Time I Flew Solo in South America: Part 1

10 Dec , 2015  

When I started to plan my trip to South America, the first thing most people would say was, “Awesome! Who are you going with?” When I said I was travelling alone, their next statement was usually, “Really? Wow, that’s really brave.” Brave? Me? Hardly. There are countless reasons why people travel alone. For me, it was […]

The time we rode camels into the Sahara Desert

4 Dec , 2015  

A camel gets up butt-first.  That was one of my first lessons in camel-riding when I was pitched forward as it rose off it’s hind legs.  The only thing that stopped me from an embarrassing tumble headfirst was the camel unfolding its front legs to help me regain balance. Then we were off, walking into […]

What’s next: Myanmar

18 Nov , 2015  

After some flip-flopping on where to go for our “big” trip for the year, I took a friend’s advice and decided to go to Hong Kong. With a side trip to Myanmar, of course. Now that the country is slowly warming to the idea of tourism, blogs and images of the beauty of Myanmar-formerly-Burma are […]

The Time I Couldn’t Figure Out What was a “Fake” Bus to The Terracotta Warriors [Xi’an]

15 Nov , 2015   Gallery

Swindling tourists is a real occupation in most cities that attract large number of tourists. As a resident of Paris, I’d like to think that I’m quite good at avoiding the swindlers, usually because I’m not standing in the middle of a tourist attraction looking around in awe, or appearing confused at some intersection trying […]
