I will be traveling solo this summer for several weeks, mainly in Scandinavia, Paris, and Normandy. For both budget and ambiance, I plan to do a lot of picnicking. I've found it interesting that all the guidebooks that suggest farmers' markets, etc., for provisions don't say anything about washing them. Going back to the hostel will be pretty inconvenient. Are water fountains widely available? Will I be looked at like I'm insane? I'm not one of those people who obsessively washes produce with special brushes, but I also really don't want to get sick.
Any thoughts on this would be most welcome.
