I know it because I was searching through pharmacies in Devon once and they have only the others ;)
Will do. I think that's more of an American thing than British though. We have the pharmaceuticals available, sure, but we don't have quite the same culture of heavy usage most Americans I've met do. At least, the only thing I ever take is the occasional paracetamol (usually alcohol-related).
Euro plug adapters come in handy for your laptop and stuff, inform your credit/debit card issuer that youre going abroad to avoid them flagging your card, ID other than passport, decent marmalade and some gravy powder.
Got it, plenty of food (well the basics, herbs/spices, jam and the like, to avoid too much expenditure). Actually gonna close my account as soon as I get my tax rebate, so the credit card tip is appreciated, but not necessary. Will take driving license (a lot of jobs here would like one anyway, and I might well stay on after this contract finishes to find another). Cheers.
You mean... I'll either love Poland or hate it? ;)
Coming for the cold bit!! Walking boots, dont change money in GB its a crap rate theres millions of independent kantors here, if your changing big money take a Pole and haggle.
Wow, thanks for the tips. I've already changed some money (because of the job I was supposed to start 2 weeks ago), but I'll get more when i go over there. I've travelled around East Slavia before, on occasions alone, in the late hours of the night/early hours of the morning, and not seen anything approaching that you would see in the UK, so I'm not really worried about crime (but I am used to pickpocketing/train dangers). Thanks for the tip regarding change-checking, hadn't thought of that, and cheers, hope it goes well too.
