sometimes I pretend I have a massive budget and leaf through Elle Decor and Anthropologie, mentally decorating my little studio apartment with $4000 sofas and changing my color scheme every few months.

oh, I wish I had found this book sooner!  while I was traveling around Europe, the first few hours in a new place were always so stressful.  how do you say 'hello' in Frankfurt?  do you tip in Paris?  I really want these shoes, but what size am I in London?  it's hard to research all of this stuff before you go, especially if you're hitting many different cities in a short period of time like I did.
