I bought 1 stick of lip balm.

Worried I was going to buy lip gloss by mistake, but it all worked out OK.

We bought 2 pints of cocktails each.



We went to the Mexican one night. With 7 minutes to go before the end of happy hour we made the most of their cocktail menu.

This resulted in everyone exchanging "Most embarassing sh*t" stories. Then one of the larger gents in our group managed to convince pretty much all of us that he could beat two of the more lithe chaps in a 25m sprint. Sadly this was subsequently proved to be incorrect in a sprint across the wet central town square of Essen.

I bought 6 Lego cars.

What a find while stopping in a petrol station on the way back through Belgium. A special Shell / Ferrari promotion. Only €2 each! Got a bit of a funny look when my friend and I asked for 12 of them, 2 complete sets. For the children you understand.
