ITT: Foreign currency collections
19 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Do you collect foreign currency? Post your collection. Pic related, it's mine. From left to right:
>Top row: Kenyan shilling (50 and 100), Belarusian ruble (50, 500)
>2nd: Lithuanian litas (10, 20), Russian ruble, Thai baht
>3rd: UAE dirham, Qatari riyal, Euro, Ukrainian hryvnia
>4th: Swedish krone, Romanian leu (1, 5), Moldovan leu (1, 50)
>Bottom row: Jordanian dinar, Lebanese lira, Polish zloty (10, 50)
I've also been to Denmark, Israel and the UK, but I don't have their respective currencies, for some reason. I also went to the breakaway republic of Transnistria when I was in Moldova, and I curse myself to this day for not bringing back the based Transnistrian ruble.
Fun facts: 50 Belarusian rubles is a ridiculously low amount of money, a grand total of $0.002. Indeed, Belarus is one of few countries with only notes, no coins, in circulation. Lithuanian litas was replaced by the Euro last year, and next month the old Swedish notes will be replaced by new ones. The three notes in the picture are the only notes I have that are, or will soon be, out of circulation.
tl;dr: Post your moneys collection.

*Note about the JR Rail Pass*
Many people ask about whether or not the JR Rail Pass is worth it. It depends on your itinerary.
Plug your itinerary into Hyperdia to determine ticket costs, then compare to the below JR Pass options:
>7 day Pass: 29,110¥
>14 day Pass: 46,390¥
>21 day Pass: 59,350¥
Please check the /trv/ sticky before asking questions. It's filled with links to great resources, many of them specific to Japan travel.

I'm planning to go to Hungary in August of 2017. My two friends are leaving from Florida and I'm leaving from California.
Can this place be done with a 3k USD budget? (Including airfare, I hace found tickets for 800 usd even during summer months)
With this budget, will I be a richfag and be able to buy good meals and have fun?
Also, I want to take dsy trips outside of Hungary to Bratslavia and Vienna. I looked, and it seems like this can be had for 40-50 dollars round trip.
Are the trains reliable to go around the country? Is the Danube cruises worth it?
Also, which card should I use for taking cash out for ATMs. Should I carry cash as well?
