Oh, well, that was bound to happen (the government said it wouldn't happen, that euros were good, but it happened, I think it's because of the price conversions, that made corporations want to have round numbers, since with pesetas, we didn't use fractional numbers). See an example from where I have breakfast with my work-mates (might be cheaper or more expensive, depending on the place):

Before euros
- Coffee: about 100 pta.

After euros
- Coffee: usually, 0.90 or 1 euro (166 pta.)


Not that I actually care that much, since I wasn't even 18 when that happened (I don't remember a voting here though), but with the euros, came a new term for workers, sort of "thousand-euroers" (literal translation), which basically applies for the vast majority of workers in the country, and comes to refer to people that earn about 1000 euros or less each month (that's about 15000 euros a year). Me, of course, I'm included in that group, and I think I'll be there for a while until my years of experience (and at least, I'm getting quality experience in business apps programming) make me "expensive".


Also, before euros, the money amounts we used to talk about, sounded like a lot, but with euros, they sounded sort of cheap, like small money (not good for compulsive expenders).
For example:

My dad's salary: 200,000 pta. -> 1,200 euros
A big game: 10,000 pta. -> 60 euros
An average apartment: 30,000,000 pta. -> 180,000 euros


The only good thing that comes with the EU and the euro is the abilty to travel with the same currency and my original ID, without need for passports. Apart from that, I don't know...

I have just now bought the ferry ticket for this transport. I did so, so we're certain to get a place on that particular ferry. I don't know, if it was necessary, or if we could just show up and buy the ticket on the spot. But better be sure, so now that part is managed too.

There's a train, heading towards my hometown late in the night

This is what
1 Pasport
2 Money, Danish and some euros
3 My digital camera

Furthermore The train arrives about 0642 at nørreport station, from there I take then Metro to Forum(a 2 minutes trip) but walking is not an option, it's about 2 km from the staion to the hotel
