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 […]

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 Got Kicked by a Kangaroo [Kangaroo Island]

22 Apr , 2015   Gallery

If there were a survey for the game Family Feud on the topic “Things in Australia,” I guarantee that the ones worth the most points would be “Kangaroos” “Koalas” and…well actually I couldn’t think of a third, maybe “spiders” or “surfers” or, as Waffles puts, “poisonous s***” So when I found out that Waffles was going to Australia for work in 2013, I […]

The Time We Drove Down the Great Ocean Road

5 Apr , 2015   Gallery

The first time I heard the word “sublime” was in first year British English Literature Survey class where my prof spent a long time trying to explain to us dumb first-years, in as simple language as possible, what British Romantic poets were trying to convey in their poems when they encounter greatness. She used Niagara Falls as […]

I’ve summarized below all the places we stayed in […]
