Well what a historic day yesterday. I was able to complete what is a mundane and everyday task but not something I have been able to do since Jan 14.
Yes I walked up to a hole in the wall, withdrew some cash and didnt get charged for it!
My UK bank NatWest have been charging me up to £2 a time for this! Unfortunately I am unable to get paid directly into a Swedish account yet because I am still under a Uk contract and I dont fancy getting taxed twice. So SEB Bank are my saviours. They set me up an account and then finally I was able to get Natwest to transfer most of my funds across to Sweden.
The other historic thing was that I was able to go through the whole ATM process in Swedish. Not just that I was able to access SEB’s online banking and check out my balance and set up a payment to my landlord, again all in Swedish.
The bad thing is that this means I have no excuses for not joining a gym now though I am sure I will be able to think of some 😉
