4. Its Time To Chow Down
Well, I love food. I can pretty much eat anything from anywhere. This section could be boring because I cannot say I have a complaint about food overseas. If you like all food you won’t have a problem adjusting overseas. However, shopping for food could be an ISSUE. Lets face it, you won’t be going to Safeway, Peapod or Walmart to go shopping for groceries, so remember that. You will be lucky if you see your favorite cereal like Honeycombs or whatever. All countries make their own goods so they won’t have to pay to import them which is very understandable. My first year in Finland I bought my favorite candies 🙂 🙂 and mac&cheese and other things that my agent suggested. I was lucky because my agent played there previously and had an idea of some things I might miss not being that grocery store.
Pack your goodies but not too much because someone can always send things you might want. Searching for things and testing could be hard at first but you will get use to it. I did and its kinda fun and frustrating at the same time.
Through my experience food hasn’t been an issue and probably never will be anymore. Just keep in mind the prices are not the same as in the USA. But here is my summary of my taste buds in those countries and my favorite dish :).
