The coolest currency in town…

Big post on my recent trip to Budapest to follow, but in the meantime…

Hungary isn’t in the Euro, so it was back to the Europe of yesteryear and funny money national currency plus a bit of exchange rate research on t’tinternet. But did you know Antarctica has it’s own currency? Look how cool that $100 bill is! That’s practically a GCSE maths paper Banknotes.com – Image Gallery – Banknotes of Antarctica.

Needless to say the girl at the Bureau D’ Change at Gatwick hadn’t heard of it. And, um, there’s no where to spend it.

(UPDATE: to the comment below. Sadly they’re not legal tender.
