I will be backpacking in the Eu on the changeover date, and was wondering what the story is. from what I have learnt, both currencies in the EU country will be legal tender, but all cash machines will dispense the euro only from Jan 1st. What I am not clear on is will by budget of £35 a day still give me the same spending power if I was using say the euro instead of the say DEM????
