    This is the bathtub in my room in Hamm, Germany. Can someone explain the thinking behind having a glass shower “curtain” that only extends 1/3 of the way down the tub? The only way to keep water from splashing all over the room was to point the shower head straight down, making it difficult to wash my hair without bashing my own head.

    Look identical to the one I saw at a hotel in Lausanne, Switzerland. I spent a week trying to figure out how to keep the rest of the bathroom dry whilst getting myself wet.

    This is a fairly standard shower setup in the UK, and usually it’s adequate because the water pressure here is much lower than in North America. I’m not sure if it’s standard through the rest of Europe, but it’s certainly not exclusive to Germany.
