Make sure you try currywurst in Germany. It's basically a hot dog with tomato sauce (ketchup) and curry powder. Tastes brilliant and only costs 1 or 2 Euro.
I've found from experience the best and most reliable brand of adaptors for Australian travellers is Korjo. Check out www.korjo.com
Definitely worth doing if you are in any way interested in Ancient Rome - the guide is a wealth of knowledge.
