Quick note: first time I travel to EU so probably making n00b observations. As mentioned in another thread, I am traveling in Europe at the moment and so far, it's been great. However, I've noticed that while food at bus/train stations is a bit more expensive than at the supermarket (which is normal everywhere), it's not marked up as much as in America (at least in the ones I've been to across the country). Is this common or is it because I haven't visited really expensive cities so far? Another interesting difference is that you have to pay to use the bathroom at certain stations which is not really a common practice in America. There are also no water drinking fountains, again, common in good ole USA.
