Hi to everybody,

I just want to share my bad experience in France. Because it is totaly silly and meaningless situation. Any bank or post office doesn't exchange Polish Zloty to Euro or another moneys in Paris and Strasbourg. So be carefull if you will go to the France, before the France you must be sure you have enough Euro :)

I love France. There is so much the whole world inherited form their culture: democracy (ya, ya, Greeks started it), wine (ya, ya, other countries make better ones), art (no competition), cheese, truffles, lavender fields, Paris, Normandy and my favourite: Provance. Hmmmmm.......

eatining is art

Versaille, South of France, Champagne, etc.

what I don't like about France-> most of the food. I like the cheese and wine but I'm not a big fan of fish, snails, frogs, boeuf, duck, and all the other different types of meats that the French eat at every meal. I hate red meat, so dinners in France are gross to me :(

I'm sure it is. Like M says...art, wine, cheese filet minon ;) What more can you ask for? Not sure about their beer though.

It's possible that not enough PL bring zloty into the country. When I travelled with my gf's family, they always exchange currency before leaving the country. I'd imagine this would also be done at the Airport.

It's not only France. We have a large PL population in NJ, but I can't exchange in a Bank of America or Commerce. If I go to a PL neighborhood, maybe one of their banks would. It's not common here anyway.

I don't know why you must go to the France actually. That was just my experince and I really surprised. But maybe some people can go there for spent nice times at Paris or another romantic cities :)

Most places in the UK will exchange, I'm really surprised that you can't do it in America..

And never never never never exchange at an airport...its the worst rate you can get! Unless you are changing £ to euro and everywhere is shite at the moment :( only a week and a half to go before Im in sunny Spain....please let the euro increase....

For the food, the culture, the history, the scenery, just to name a few. Paris is a beautiful city to visit for a week or so, then it's off to Brittany and Normandy, Alsace, and especially Provence. Villefranch-sur mer is a gem, and there are many more.
