I love going to supermarkets. While most people groan at the thought of togging out for the weekly shop, it’s something that I actually volunteer for, and then happily idle an hour away lingering over labels and lettuce.

That experience is only heightened on a trip abroad. In my case last week, that happened to be Bavaria in southern Germany.
