    Tayler's Bio:
    My name is Tayler and I was an English major/biology minor at the College of St. Scholastica! I have lived in Duluth all of my life so I know all the best local restaurants and hiking trails. On campus, I was involved with The Cable, Bella Voce, the Northstar Reports, the McNair Scholars Program, Student Support Services, and the English & Arts Club. Off campus, I volunteered with Mentor Duluth and enjoy throwing theme parties with friends and family.

Dining Abroad

Dining Abroad has been an interesting experience as a self-declared picky eater. Every morning at our hotel we get a breakfast of egg, sausage, bacon, and toast. As amazing as that sounds, it’s very different from the American style you are picturing. Still, it is very good but has gotten old very quickly. That’s why we got a brunch today of French Toast to mix it up a little. Another interesting difference is milk containers are kept open and unrefridgerated on the tables whether you are in your hotel for breakfast or at a public cafe. I definitely think the milk tastes different. A final thing that surprised me is that you are priced differently for eating in a restaurant than if you take it to go. You are charged the additional costs to cover cleaning up your seating and dishes. Apparently, McDonals does this in the U.S. as well but I’ve never been told that before this trip. The restaurants here list the prices very clearly. Most people are familiar with the “no tip” policy abroad which makes food a little more expensive but it’s sooooooo much more convenient.
