Re: euros into greece

If you remain legally resident in UK, you only need (or over the last 7 years it's all I have given) a certificate of residency from HMRC, not the Double Taxation Agreement certificate. I have never had this translated and only once was I challenged to, I refused and stated it was an EU acceptable d...

Taken from the criteria of the Blue Flag International Organisation is:- Access to the beach by dogs and other domestic animals must be strictly controlled. Now this raises many questions, It does not say it is illegal, just the dog must be controlled. This can be argued as on a leash..... Of course...

If anyone want to try Transferwise, I'll add a link...

Agreed CF are good, but Transferwise have the edge over them on rates each day. Granted only a fraction but they offer the same services and NO transfer fee
