Just made it to Germany today for my first holiday in ages, and there are some things I like about it.
1) People smoke on overground stations. Back in England I have smoked on virtually every overground station in London (being careful not to stand near any non smokers) but everyone else keeps to the silly rules and refuses even to go to an empty part of the platform and light up.
2) due to lower taxes tobacco is half the price. I intend to bring back a decent amount for personal consumption and thus avoid a punitive and regressive sin tax.
3) the hotel in which I am staying (go ahead and sneer you ‘left’ puritans) has given us massive pillows. This is extremely considerate given that my girlfriend has a massive face.
