    Taxis at airports and cruise ports.....especially Piraeus, near Athens.....
    Expected tips, in the USA, which comes as a major shock to anyone from Europe.
    Bar prices on certain cruise lines....which we won't use again.
    Taverna owners who alter the prices according to the nationality they're serving.
    Artificial prices demanded by stall holders and beach sellers, in countries which haggle.
    Livorno, where you can't walk through the harbour-but HAVE to take a harbour bus and pay €5.
    Countries which fine you for buying replica goods, but don't manage to catch the men who sell them, nor the Mr. Big who runs them.

    I wanted to vote for all of these! Airport food is a biggie -- I have rarely gotten a decent meal in an airport, but I always pay through the nose for my wilted iceberg lettuce salad. And hotel minibars: $7 for a bottle of water, are you kidding me? LOL.
