Somewhere along the line, I changed 20 Euros into Swedish currency and got 143.89 SEK. I knew we probably wouldn't need it, but .... (maybe I'd need to use a loo!) I think we changed it in Trondheim so we'd have some for Ostersund to Haparanda if we needed it. [We didn't use all of the Swedish money - so easy to just use our Visa card.]
