1. Buying groceries after 7 pm
Supermarkets in Spain open at least until 8:30 pm (and that’s an early closing time). After a few failed attempts of grocery shopping in Austria I learnt my lesson: Always check the opening hours! Some stores close as soon as 6 pm (in Spain they open at 5!), but in some cases, such as big department stores, you could find them open until 8 pm! The idea of trying to buy groceries after 7 soon started to feel weird. That’s when I should be having dinner, my new Austrian brain said! And beware of the weekends. You could starve if you don’t plan in advance!
