For curiosity I had a look to see if Google could tell me what average heights are and I found that in Norway, for women it is 1.67m, and in Spain it is 1.61m (
I am 1.75m.
But this post wasn’t supposed to be just about heights. As the title reveals, I wanted to talk about beds... In Norway, the standard bed-length is 2 meters. No more, no less. With a good 2 meters of bed you are more or less covered either you’re short or tall. So up until September this year, I have never in my life given bed-length any special thought, and my bed has always been comfortably long enough.
Here, however the standard bed size is 1.80m and that makes me end up with my toes outside! I have tried four different beds (Málaga, Hotel Barcelona, Room with nice couple while waiting to find my own place in Barcelona, and my new home) and it’s all been the same. I will have to get myself some nice cosy socks now that autumn is setting in!
