Learning from travel

Last modified date

After 12 weeks exploring Europe and Great Britain, I have learnt a few things. Here are some of them in no particular order.

  • Europe and Great Britain are beautiful
  • There are lovely people everywhere
  • A tube of toothpaste can last 3 months
  • A toothbrush cannot last 3 months
  • British toilets are the most difficult to flush
  • German drivers are crazy
  • You need to buy a ticket for toll roads or you will get fined
  • Most European countries could solve their budget issues if they collected fines for speeding
  • If you are doing 130kph, you had better be in the slow lane
  • Trucks are not allowed to drive on the freeways in Germany on Sundays
  • Most European freeways don’t have billboards
  • Billboards in the Czech Republic are Czech flags
  • Ordering coffee is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you are going to get
  • Almost everyone in Europe smokes
  • People appreciate it if you try to speak their language
  • Cheese is delicious
  • French bread is best
  • Everyone takes their own plastic bags to the supermarket. They banned single-use plastic bags years ago
  • The history of Europe and Great Britain is sad and violent
  • 3 months is too long to be away from home

I’ve probably learnt a few other things too. I’ve certainly enjoyed this experience.
