In Belgium, that means eating waffles the Belgian way — or, one might say, the right way. It’s not all about shoving a deliciously warm waffle in your face.

As always, there is a need to actually plan things out. Planning doesn’t necessarily require you to write things on a whiteboard and connect everything with a little red and green rope like in crime movies. Ultimately, it comes down to these questions.
