    Ok i'm struggling to get my head around this recession and currency exchanging.

    Roughly 16 months ago you could get £1 for €1, right? Now it's about £0.80 for €1.

    So i just spent €160 in Cyprus, but in pounds thats actually around £130.. sooo why is this bad? It seems pretty good to me as 16 months ago i would have had to pay £160, no?

    sorry for confusing anyone but it was bugging me so i thought i'd ask.
