A trip to Australia is the Ikea of \

Don't even think about purchasing those airplane tickets.

Disclaimer: We aren’t trying to bad mouth Australia. It appears to be a completely lovely place to live.

Elon Musk and Amber Heard chose to call it quits on Monday following a year of dating. Though they claim the separation was due to their busy schedules, we must speculate whether or not that was only the tip of the iceberg.

Now, we all know the two took a trip to Australia back in the spring, and that is when they chose to take their relationship public. There is a huge opportunity this could have been the leading cause of the eventual split.

Though a trip to Australia along with your significant other sounds great in theory, it’s really an awful, horrible idea. The Same as going to Ikea. It’ll ruin your relationship.


An Ikea trip with bae is among the fastest methods to realize that you seriously can not stand them. For real, there has been study on this. And a trip to Australia is your vacation equivalent of spending an afternoon at the Swedish furniture store. Only it lasts a lot longer. It will only end badly.

Do not believe us?

Well for starters, the flight is ridiculously extended (out of America at least). It is everywhere from 14 to 16 hours from LA..

All that time at a little, uncomfortable space sitting alongside the person you “love” will begin to get old real fast. You’re likely to get cranky and hungry and you are going to need to get up to pee like three times. The bickering is unavoidable. Next thing you know, you are in tears since babe simply told you that they would have rather gone to Disney like you guys do every year. So rude.

But then you land and you think “Ok, time to enjoy our trip!” Wrong. The time switch has completely messed with you both and now you are too exhausted to do anything.

Oh yeah, and traveling for that long cannot be good for your intestines. Still another thing to take out on your loved one.

And then one of you will freakout the whole time about Australia’s venomous spiders and the other person will say, “You’re being ridiculous.” Leading you both to realize how different you truly are when it comes to important issues.

Add in the fact that everything is more expensive in Australia and suddenly you are getting into a heated debate within long-term fiscal choices.

And THENNNNN, you need to perform the whole 14 to 16 hour airplane ride ALL OVER AGAIN. Only this time, you don’t have any fancy destination in the end of it, you have boring ol’ home.

Why did we do so? Where did it all go wrong?

Oh yeah, if you boarded that plane with love in your hearts and smiles on your faces.

Now, which one of you will get that white six-door dresser that required three hours to install?
