*** PLEASE let's try to keep this thread away from abstract (possibly hot button political) topics like healthcare, gun rights, etc. ***

1. Noodle bowls and hot water. In Asia many train stations, bus stations, airports, and even the trains themselves have hot water dispensers that can be used with the cup-o-noodle type products sold by vendors. Cheap hot meal, fast, hits the spot, and avoids the usual way overpriced options.

2. ???

Bread. For example of cheap hardy bread, see Russia. Sadly, many other countries also fail.

Bathroom stalls that run ceiling to floor with a lock that displays whether it’s occupied or unoccupied- seems to be very common in the parts of Europe we’ve been

In the Netherlands they have a single card which can be used on all public transportation - buses, intra-city trains and trams, and inter-city trains. You touch the card to a reader on the bus or train, and it automatically deducts the price of the trip. Locals can refill the card online from their bank account; tourists can do it at a number of convenient offices. It makes getting around really simple and easy! I wish we had something like that.

I wish there were more cities in the United States that were like London or Paris.

The only city that can compete with those is New York City. That is kind of limiting.

Wide selection of Diesel cars and vans available elsewhere (even a few better choices as near as Canada).

And 30% - 50% less expensive diesel fuel (as was the case in USA 2 decades ago).


USA is short...
Non-salty Asian food!
Street markets in evening for food.

Quick train travel within regions too short to fly.


USA has some pretty grand State Fairs. (bit unique)
