Oslo Warnings and Dangers: 66 reviews and 47 photos
This is more because of my idiocrity but it might happen to others so I'll just write it. I decided to test if I can withdraw Norwegian money at the train station ATM because the Forex exchange was closed...At home in USA, ATM's usually just max to $300-$400 on withdrawal. Our bank does anyway. But when I withdrew from the ATM, I forgot the NOK to dollar exchange rate and just picked the highest number I saw so that I don't have to go back for more money -- number which was 7000. Well, I later realized 2 hours later that I withdrew too much because people were wondering why I was paying with 500 NOK (500 NOK is $100 each)...so I actually withdrew about $1400! I did not realize ATMs withdrew that much - not in America anyway. Great, now I have too much money to carry around on top of my dollars and euros. Well I guess more is better than nil - I should count my blessings instead! Hopefully I don't get mugged, but I just leave most of my cash at my safety deposit box even in a safe city like Oslo.
