Choices, comparisons, information

This was a weekend of shopping, surfing for information, visiting fairs, listing prices, comparing choices, ... Too much data in my head.

Some lessons learned:
  • Visiting Decathlon is a dangerous store. You always leave with more than anticipated. They also make you feel like doing more sports.
  • 3 years of searching nice but simpel water sandals in vain has come to an end. Instead of looking in normal shoe stores I should have gone to a store with watersport clothing. Dugh.
  • The diving goggles of 6€ at Decathlon are just as good as the expensive models.
  • Some of their cheapest clothes stretch out by pulling them on already and are extremely unflattering. I don't want to know how their 2€ T-shirts have been produced, how and where!
  • Fotographers at fairs are more expensive than those not represented at fairs. And their pricing is so untransparent and complex! Argh.
  • I have a very cheap taste for rings....those I like most turn out to be steel ones!
  • I wonder how much spam all my contest participations will generate. If I win them all, I'll have way too many wedding dresses :p.
  • Weddings are a big business where they try to create more needs than you had.
  • A wine fair that gives each guest a wine glass should have more spots to rinse their glass.
  • Gallo wines from California aren't good. Old Vine Zinfandel from Renwood 2004 on the other hand...mmmmm.
  • Romenia is a wine country? I didn't taste anything but other walker-by's were very positive about their wines. Turkey really surprised us with their excellent "Kavaklidere Egeo Cabernet Sauvignon- Merlot 2005".
  • I really like the sour citrus taste of Abadia de San Campio 2007. Very good on a thirsty day!
  • I'm glad the Dutch have spread out over the world in the past so now we can find their funny names in global products :p. Aaah the humor in the label "Zondernaam" will always make me smile :). A wine brand "Lindemans" can only make me think of Brussels beer though, not wine.
