    Hey you guys

    Don't forget you can get your VAT (=sales tax) back on everything you take back with you out of Europe that is.

    Make sure you ask for a VAT refund form, not just a receipt, for every purchase over say 20 dollars. If they don't have a form shop elsewhere, they'll soon get the message!

    Produce the form and the goods to Customs as you leave and you'll get 17% back.

    I was a customs officer for 35 years so I have an idea what I'm talking about.
