Think a lot about money before and after you leave. Budgeting on the road is hard and if you don’t plan ahead then one of the biggest expenses will be money exchange fees. Think about getting a preloaded cash card and get it in Euros. This way you can leave your cash safely in the ATM and won’t have to carry as much on you. Also, by having it in euros already, you avoid being held to ransom by places taking advantage of a traveller with extortionate exchange rates.
