While I'm mostly just trying to survive the end of the semester at present, I'm also starting to get very excited for our trip to Europe in a few weeks. This will be my first time overseas so it's extra exciting for me. I'm intending to bring a four pipe case with me and two pipes, with the plan of populating one or two of the other slots while I'm there to commemorate the trip. Obviously the most important criterion is finding a pipe that I like, but I was curious if anybody might happen to know anything about taxes on smoking paraphernalia between France, Spain, and Austria to assess if one might be a slightly better place to go shopping. Also, any must try tobacco blends I can possibly only find in the EU? General tips or pointers?
