We need to talk about this. I’m not sure if there is an acceptable way of travelling to Europe and not mention toilets. We all use them, after all. In all our travelling experiences, toilets are the common ground.
OK, that may be pushing it. I’ll try be less philosophical about this.
My first toilet encounter was in my room at the bed and breakfast in Issum, Germany. The flush mechanism was mounted on the wall, and I was a bit confused at there being two buttons instead of a lever.

Two buttons. That seemed odd to me. Being the curious Canadian that I am, I did what I normally do. I asked my Irish colleague who was staying on the same floor what it meant.
