Yeah it was started by a different user, but just get a couple of pages further in the thread and you'll see Road_UK popping up. I never said he dedicated the thread to ES vs GIB, I said that the thread was dedicated to ES vs GIB.

And DLM. So? Does that make it different? (I never go there :P)

Hi guys. I have just managed the journey to Greece with my fiancee and here are some of my findings:

The bypass of Budapest is something great. What an improvement. Much better than last year. Now they have only to finnish the connection between western and eastern section of M0 and Budapest will become the very good example of how to do it.

Serbia did not disappoint me too. Some section are being renewed. Some drivers drove madly like they have not got any sense for saving their lives. Euro has been accepted at putarinas. I can not tell you which currency they give you back since I had prepared the exact amount.

Macedonians were a bit ridiculous but it might be only my opinion. Someone has written in MK thread that Macedonia officially accepts euro at pay tolls.

Here is it. The only thing they accept is five euro banknote and then they give you back denars.

About Greece, I like they friendly and peacefully way how they drive. Wide roads, moving to the shoulder when someone overtakes you, no speed traps.

It's quite a general habit in non-euro nations that even if euro is accepted in a shop, toll station, etc., change is always in local money. Actually the cashiers don't have change in euro.

It was the same during euro changeover. You could still pay in lire but change was given in euro.

Which I tried just once, and it was such a mess I immediately gave up the idea and exchanged all lire I had...

It was standard practice in Europe in the 80s. Even banks and foreign-exchange counters didn't have coin from other countries, so if you wanted to get the most bang for your buck, so to speak, when crossing a border, you'd change money in the country you were leaving. I still have collections of French, Belgian, Dutch, etc., coin somewhere. (Do Dutch people today know what a "rijksdaalder" or a "stuiver" was?)

People born before the early 1990s will likely know what they were.

I remember in the late 1990s that there was an outrage that the gas price was approaching a "rijksdaalder" per liter (NLG 2.50 per liter). Today we pay the equivalent of 4.00 NLG per liter. A rijksdaalder seems cheap now...

The old Dutch 10 cents coin is probably one of the smallest coin ever minted in the world. Even the 1 eurocent is larger.
