1stPancake podcast 06!! The Belgians are here!! Let’s go beyond chocolate, Brussels, and Jean-Claude Van Damme. It’s time to learn about Belgium and I got three people that can teach us. So without further adieu, Liz, Floo, and Steffen take it away!

There are only two things that I know of about Belgium. First, is that its chocolate is of the highest quality and it’s the birthplace of Jean-Claude Van Damme. Obviously there’s more to Belgium than those two. Luckily enough I knew a Belgian and she brought friends along!! So, if you’d like to know a…

Bucharest & Having Too Much Coffee Man!!! 

Doing a specialty coffee shop circuit wasn’t my intention when I went to Bucharest. It was as what Bob Ross said, a happy little accident.
