Things I Missed About The US
I kept this list in my notes as we traveled. I tried hard not to be a silly American, but there are some luxuries that we have that I missed
- •Free refillsWe didn't actually have that much pop while overseas, but still, free refills are delightful
- •Free water at mealsUgh. This one bummed me out.
- •Peanut butterUnpopular opinion: Nutella is overrated as hell
- •Knowing what bathroom to use without using GoogleThat French cafe in Vienna totally messed with my head
- •Clearly-labeled street namesSo frustrating
- •Cheaper beverages overallIt got better as we went further south, but even buying a bottle of water in Berlin was crazy expensive
- •MilkGod I missed it.
- •Being in a small town aka no crowdsThis was our own doing, as we chose to visit big cities, but I got so sick of being around people all the time
- •Sidewalks that are big enough to actually fit peopleTHE WORST
- •Things being open on SundayThis kept us on our toes
- •Being able to login to our AT&T accountApparently they have a new rule where you can't log in while out of the country. We had to call someone and have them read details of our account to us. SO STUPID.
- •Normal (to me) sized washing machinesWe were lucky enough to have washing machines in almost all of our rentals, but they were so tiny and took forever! I got home and did so much laundry so quickly, I could sing!
- •Dryers!We hung all of our clothes to dry, which was completely fine, but I still missed our dryer
- •Things being open when they said they'd be openWe ran into this problem mostly in Italy (not surprising, I know). We'd find a restaurant we'd want to try and look at their hours, go there, and they'd be closed. I'm all for living your life, but maybe update your hours when you're off living?
