I think those are becoming more of a thing of the past. I've read that they've become more difficult to cash. I had no issues using my credit cards in Paris. I was in love with the city and definitely want to return. I just thought that late December is probably not the best time.

This thread is funny to me, as I have never left Europe.

But I have been to Paris, Rome, London, Milan, Pisa, Florence, Naples, Venice and Amsterdam.

Has anyone here that's from Europe (besides Furienna) ever been to the United States?

The one thing I'm not looking forward to...the Amsterdam airport! Ugh, I have layovers there on the way there and back. It was one of the only parts of my first trip that I did not enjoy.

Funny that this thread was bumped, because I'm actually returning to Europe in the Fall. This time it's going to be Paris, Berlin, Prague and Amsterdam. I'm looking forward to it.

So how was your last trip? As for the comment about traveler's checks, yes, that's a thing of the past. In most of Europe, you can use your ATM cards. And credit cards if needed. I've found that my best exchange rates are from the ATMs. Be careful about those money exchange houses. Many of them are a rip-off, especially at airports, train stations and touristy areas. Stick with the ATM machines, if possible.

I've been to Europe many times, both for business and pleasure. I've traveled in England and Scotland, France, Luxembourg, Spain, Portugal, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Greece, Germany, Denmark, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Turkey, the Netherlands, Poland, and just outside of Europe in Morocco. And I'm not done yet! I plan to return many more times. Hopefully, I'll get to live there for awhile one day.

The flights are long. The return flight is longer than the flight over because of the jet stream. I tend to prefer European airlines because they are more old style and care about customer service, whereas the U.S. airlines only care about squeezing every nickle and dime out of you to make the biggest profit. Food also tends to be better on the European carriers, and some of them still use actual silverware, not plastic crap. Traveling within Europe, I highly recommend the trains. They're very punctual, efficient, and are accessible from virtually every town and city, no matter how small. Public transportation in Europe is amazing. And most European towns and cities are very pedestrian friendly.

Everything that's true about European living patterns is the opposite of the SUV-crazed, suburban-sprawl quality of America, and Amtrak is one of the least efficient passenger rail systems on the planet. All of this makes me embarrassed to be an American. Every time someone in America tries to do something about it, the greedy people profiting off America's current living arrangement put a quick stop to it.

My trip to Barcelona was amazing! I loved it. I'll definitely have to go back someday. I usually bring some local currency with me, and then use my credit card for the rest. I did also use an ATM in Paris. I agree about the money exchange places. I always thought that they looked like scams, just walking past them.

It's awesome that you have been to so many countries. There's so many more I want to visit in the future, and more I'd like to visit again.

I hadn't flown much at all before flying internationally, and it turns out I don't mind it at all. The flights are long, but in between sleeping and watching the on-flight movies, it seems to go by quickly...the flights there at least. I am not a big fan of the flights back. Jet lag has also never bothered me when arriving, but coming back it hits me for at least a week. I absolutely love using the trains. They are so easy to navigate and very convenient. I only had one issue with that in Paris where one stop was so crowded at night, that people were pushing to get off and pushing to get on at the same time. The doors of the trains in Paris do NOT stop for motion, so it was a tad frightening.

I'm hoping to go to London before the Mini Ice Age hits in 2030 and freezes it over!
