Oh, dear supermarkets… you had me at hello.
There are some situations we all go through, and the first time in a foreign supermarket is one of them!
Excitement!? For sure! Who doesn’t want to discover a whole new range of products and new universe of food!? I am in!
(This looks pretty much like me on payday)
So you walk in… take a basket and fun is just about to begin!, even though the first time it may be quite an overwhelming situation, you are trying to find out the products that you usually eat, or those ones you are craving for, and you find yourself surrounded by anything, but nothing you know or you’ve seen before. Where the hell is everything !?
Well… you may start to find out the different areas of the supermarket and start to locate the products you were looking for.. but wait!
You suddenly find yourself in front of 10 different types of milk, what is the difference between them? Does this mean lactose free?, Almond? Why so many numbers and percentages?.. RELAX… the universe bless google and google translator! If you are lucky enough and you already have a Simcard and internet connection, you can call yourself lucky.
So.. you went for some basics to have the first week .. and you end up buying different snacks, a few more sweets than your teeth can actually take and 15 things that you didn’t really expect to buy.
The best part, is that the next time you visit the supermarket, you will probably go back for those products you’ve bought, and also try all the rest. Because of course, we all want and need to know which are gonna be our best friends snacks in that Friday night that you just want to watch a film and die on the sofa.
So don’t feel guilty if you start loosing money and gaining weight, we’ve been all been into that… but knowing the food is a big part of being into the culture! 😉
Would love to hear your comments and experiences with it!
