I've never found any euro notes, but once I was buying a train ticket in Duesseldorf. I put 2€ into the machine and nothing happened, tried again and nothing happened. So I lost 4€.

Then I went to the other machine but it wasn't working so I went back to the first one. And it was still saying "insert money" so I decided to put in a :note-10:. Then suddenly about 20€ of coins came out, plus my ticket :D


I was in Canada where the notes are now plastic and they stick to each other. I bought something at a supermarket and inserted a :note-100: (it's brown not green). My change came out with several coins plus 5x :note-20: ($20 is green) - only found out when I went back to hotel and peeled the notes apart!

a couple of weeks ago , as I was chatting with semone in the street I noticed a piece of paper on the pavement and thought : " funny it is same colour as a :note-10: " ….then.. "got to check" … and bingo there was an abandoned :note-10: desperate to find a new owner :D

I found two 1 Danish krone coins and an old Escudo coin at a Repsol service station yesterday. I think this has happened to me before: at any place where cars get cleaned, you're likely to find loose change (not notes, sadly hehe). Still, the krone coins were quite the surprise! :flag-dk:

I was going to post a message saying this was the first bill I found lying on the ground.
After checking, however, it's actually the fourth one. I had apparently forgotten about these : :note-10: :note-5: :note-5:

Congrats Moise, I think the note was URLed by you because it's your hitpartner's first note in EBT. :D

Let's hope ginopolenta will continue in inserting notes.

I’d say so.
And it deserves to become a hit!

Today I visited local airport of Rovaniemi as I was curious to see planes. Within 1-2 hours flights arrived and departed to Paris, Athens, Barcelona and Madrid and 3 planes to Helsinki. So the small airport was full of passengers and buses and taxis. So I parked a bit further away close to personnel parking.

On my way back to my car I found a :note-5: euro note on snow.
To my surprise it gave me a nice hit to Germany. :D
