I ate many, many delicious sweets on my vacation. The chocolate almond croissant I had from this place was probably one of the best things I've eaten in my entire life. However, my favorite treat remains the Stroopwaffel. Yes, you can get them at Trader Joes. But are they the giant ones that you can cover your cup of tea with? No, they are not. I made this little comic illustrating the proper consumption of these dutch cookies to accompany a tin of them that I gave to some friends. Yum yum.

Adventures in Wonderland

The thing about vacation is that sometimes when you get home you feel like it never happened. I had such a great time on my trip and am sad that it's over. However, I am not sad that I no longer have to rely on my 7th grade level french to order a sandwich. Thank you, people of Europe, for letting me partake in the magic of macaroons, intricate iron gates, fresh french bread, and cathedrals and cafes. I'm inspired. "Well done, you."

I've posted the first batch of photos from Amsterdam and Brussels on my flickr page. More to come soon!

I'm outta herrrrre...

This Monday I'm going on an adventure with my BFF from high school. We mostly plan on eating chocolate and drinking beer but I'm sure I'll see some old historical stuff too, natch. First stop Amsterdam, next Brussels, then Paris and last stop London. Later, dude.
