I am currently in California for a long business trip. It is surprising how often I wake up here with my feet going past the end of the bed.
The double European beds are about the same size as Queen beds so my issue probably comes from the incredible amount of pillows that you usually find at the top of the bed.
I am not especially tall so how do American people, often taller than European (my feeling), deal with this? My guess is that there are several possibilities:
- People throw somewhere all these pillows and just keep one
- People sleep on the bed diagonally (I often do this one)
- People build some kind of corridor in the middle of pillows so that they can squeeze in and fit in the bed
