I also take photos of my driving license, passport and important docs (insurance) on my phone as well to have another back up always to hand.
I have never been abroad but I am doing that, and this is a thread in which I request that you help me be all prepared and etc
Having a prepaid currency card - or a bank card without fees - is good.
You probably will need to make sure you have cash on you though. Berlin especially can be very hit and miss for cards being accepted in bars/restaurants.

No I’ve never been abroad, because I never wanted to. Something something
Berlin again, do visit the Reichstag Building (Bundestag). It’s free but you have to book online. It’s very popular so it often shows online as sold out but tickets come up continuously so check every now and then. You can queue up on the day but the queue is hours long. https://www.bundestag.de/en/visittheBundestag
ty dots I am, yep. MBG, Dean (have you met Dean?) and Jayson are the definites. will you be on your charity cycling thing?
I’m getting pretty excited. used to be very anxious about this sort of thing.
Yes! All the ruin bars we went to were fun. The Szechenyi Hawkes baths were fine in the daytime when we’ve been. Have heard about the parties though which don’t really sound like my thing. Love Budapest.
Yeah I think thats Corvinteto?
We also went to good ones called Szoda, Lokál Bar, Eleszto and Spiler (not all ruin bars) and ate at a nice place called Zeller Bistro.
I’m going to France next month. I was thinking of buying this t-shirt to wear while I’m there.
Oh, sorry. I was joking.
No I apologise - it’s monday. It’s early.
