5 Things Americans Won't Find in Europe
posted by: Sandra • in Soap Box
Pretty much anything we want or need in Europe, we can find it. Some things maybe aren't quite what we are used to back home. But at least we can find it. There are a few exceptions, though.

Who picks the songs for the grocery stores? Because THREE times now here in Europe I've been wandering a store looking for something (and not finding it) when the U2 song comes on... "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For." If I owned a store I would want to make sure my customers definitely found what they were looking for AND they come back often!
