I used to be very intimidated by the idea of proxying. Looking back, I don’t know what it was that seemed so unmanageable. I worried about the language barrier, the added expenses, etc. I can sometimes be naturally hesitant about things I haven’t done before, but I would still see things I wanted that were available on sites that didn’t offer international shipping, and it was so frustrating. Once I went in, though, I was very pleasantly surprised at how easy it was.
