I find it curious when I'm in a country where I don't understand the language of, suddenly everything seems such a novelty. A trip to the grocery, which normally takes 10 minutes, would take triple the time.
I would be trying to figure what everything means, which milk we should get, what is the difference of this bottle to that bottle, and why is that bottle have a picture of that, etc etc. Then, after we got all the essentials, we would wander around and figure out what it is they have here that we don't have in our country. They'd always have coke. They would have seemingly weird snacks that we would laugh about but would be too afraid to try. We ended up with the safe option guaranteed to be chocolatey: biscuits fourres choco.
In France, we found everything sounded so elegant and romantic. I mean you can probably say really disgusting things in French and it would still sound elegant and romantic.
