    I had a 5 hour drive with my dad yesterday.

    It was actually pretty fun because I had a bunch of Gabriel Iglesias clips stored on my phone, so my dad let me play them on the car radio. We were laughing the whole drive!

    I Think I Should Do It Again...

    Just about half a year after the fall of the Berlin Wall, curiosity got the better of me and I sold my car, bought a van, put a mattress in the back, blinded the windows, packed camping cooking gear and on my way I went. East-Germany and Russia were (and in a way still are...
