When we were abroad, of course, it was the people back home that we missed the most. But what STUFF did we miss the most, specifically when traveling?
I answered this question on Quora. Here's what I said.
I live abroad and love to travel, but sometimes I really miss:
-- Water you can drink from the tap.
-- Clean, free toilets.
-- Wide roads, parking spaces, drivers who follow the rules of the road.
-- Stores open Sundays, Mondays and evenings.
-- Strangers who smile and look you in the eye.
-- The concept of personal space.
-- Free refills, free water and quick service in restaurants.
