Best thing about travelling with the gang? Worst thing?
The best thing-
- Good team for bar fights
- More rounds to drink at the bar
- Divide price of suites in hotels when we can't find hostel rooms
The worst thing-
- More rounds to pay at the bar
- Find a restaurant when everyone is craving for different food
How do you prepare your trips? Who's in charge of that?
Alex prepares and everyone follows. Ok, not really! We just all gather info of things we want to do and share the basics like plane tickers, dates and accommodation on a FB group. Everyone prepares his own trip and then we see together what we do once there.
What would be the ideal trip of the gang?
You can drop us anywhere—just like Bear Grylls—and we'll have fun no matter what.
Best travel memories?
- Booking a suite at the Radisson in Stockholm and sneaking 8 people in.
- Alex and Romain getting their first tattoo together in Krakow.
- Meeting the locals in Brooklyn for some crazy nights
- The Széchenyi bath in Budapest
- The fresh fruits in the morning after the clubs at the market in Barcelona.
- More than we can't talk about here...
