My First Euros

12 Jun

My First Euros Another step closer. I exchanged some dollars for euros today at a local bank. Here is a one-euro coin, two 2-euro coins, and a 20 euro note. Another photo shows the metallic strip on the note which shines in the camera flash. The paper money is quite pretty and has a map of the European continent on the back.

    Don’t spend it all at once 😉

      I will be interested to see how far it goes.

        Lunch and dinner, if you’re lucky.

    Remember Rosemarie that those 1 euro coins are worth about $1.35 each. I sometimes forget that my “pocket change” is worth quite a lot. Have a great trip over and enjoy your time trekking around the Dolomites.

      Thanks for the reminder and the good wishes.

    I am really excited for you! I have not traveled to Europe in two years, so I’ll just tune in to all your adventures 🙂

    • Rosemarie June 13, 2013 at 3:26 am #

      Well, it’s been 38 years absence for me. I’m excited and a bit nervous.

        Travel is a challenge, but I love traveling to Europe. It is so inspiring for me to go there. I wish for you to have a great time. I have not traveled to Asia, except to the Philippines, so if I ever did, that would be very nerve racking for me.

    Hey Rosemarie! I’m excited to read about your adventure. You will get so many coins as change when you spend your euros. When I travel in Europe, I usually take a coin purse or some kind of little zipper bag (like a little make-up bag) to keep track of all my coins. The coin section of a typical American wallet is too small for all the coins you will carry around. Plus, having a coin purse is a way to remind you to spend your coins before your bills. Have a great trip!

      Thanks so much for the tip, Susan. These last few days will be taken up with missing pieces like the coin purse. Also insect repellent. Soap container. Plastic bags. Rosemarie

        Klingt super, wir planen einen Camper Trip in die Dolomiten im Herbst!

        Ich habe noch viel mehr fotos.

    Have a great trip!

    During our last visit to Europe, we realised that the 2 Euro coins all have different pictures on the one side. We had such fun trying to collect them!

      The Swiss are the odd men out. They have their own currency, just to keep things a little topsy-turvy.
