Toilets of the World…..You May Never Want To Travel Again…
Many people say that when they travel, their bowel movements slow down. It’s normal….after all, you’re taken out of your routine, your comfort zone. But, here’s the thing….in some parts of the world, your bowels may just take a full on halt! It’s not being taken out of your comfort zone. It’s more like being put on toilet hell! So, put those passports away, and for your bowels sake, stay in YOUR bathroom! 🙂
The washout toilet, with a platform allowing your to inspect everything before it falls down the pipe.
Be prepared. No other words are needed.
France (and other European countries)
Use this beautiful bidet to clean yourself. It’s too bad it isn’t actually on the toilet; that seems much more prudent.
The splash card looks mighty useful. Without it, sometimes there’s some pee in places you don’t want it.
Japan Part 2.
Allow the technology to take care of all your business. It’s much too difficult.
SE Asia (many countries)
Here’s a helpful diagram of things on a squatty potty. Make sure you don’t accidentally pee on your jeans.
Many of them give you a choice in the public restroom. Especially in the bus stops… both are present. I hear the squatting is useful in the “number 2” department, but as a girl, peeing in it proves quite a challenge.
Likely the cleanest toilet in India. I saw Slumdog.
That toilet is just far away enough from the wall. I’ve seen others much closer, and it adds an additional challenge to the exercise.
Never ever put TP in the toilet. It breaks everything.
Apparently this is the same there.
Cambodia (and rest of Asia)
That bum gun / assblaster is more useful than you’ll ever know. The water pressure…. YES.
Just give it back to the river. The potty is built right over it. And that, my friends, is why we don’t swim in Cambodia’s rivers.
No walls are necessary.
Seriously, no walls ever. Waste space.
Happy number 1’s, and 2’s people! Share with friends!
