Julie, [br][br]We did end up booking the Moulin Rouge tickets a few weeks back, should be good.[br][br]One of the guys at work’s girlfriend has been on a tour at the moment over there. The last update was that the Amsterdam sex show was pretty damn seedy (which really isn’t suprising when you think about it I guess). [br][br]And good to see you are recovering waz, must be one hell of an illness there to keep you from work…[br][br]Cheers,[br][br]Vaughan

I got one of those NAB Gold Debit Visas which doesn’t charge foreign ATM fees (as well as another Credit Card).[br][br]I just plan on taking cash out from ATMs when we hit different currencies. Worked for me when I went skiing over there. Guess Switzerland is the main issue to make sure you don’t end up with left over coins that most places won’t swap back.[br][br]


#13

Only 1 week to go!!![br]anyone else out there who is coming along?[br][br]I’ve also gone the NAB Gold Banking debit card option. The no conversion fees or overseas ATM fees was the major point. Just going to take out money from ATM’s in each country as I need it.[br][br]Warren[br][br][br]---------------------------------------------[br]Spirit of Europe 18th Aug 2009

Those of you on the Spirit of Europe must be on your way… I’ll meet you guys in Budapest on Aug 31 :slight_smile: I’ll be exchanging US $$ for Hungarian Forint then use ATM and credit cards the rest of the tour.
