So I am still confused by Deutsche Post...
I knew the inland letters had gone up to 0.58 Eurocents. I had to send a couple of things outside of Germany today and I forgot to go till the post office was closed so had to use the machine, and it doesn't tell you how much the stamps are. And I'd forgotten to check on the website to see if the international stamps had gone up. So I just assumed they HAD because normally when the Royal Mail puts stamp prices up it puts up the UK ones a bit and then puts up the international ones A LOT...so I paid 0.80 Eurocents instead of 0.75, and then when I got home I found out that those ones actually haven't gone up after all...oh well...
Still....a BIG VALUE compared to the UK where a letter to Germany would cost 0.87p now...that's 1.07 Euros...hmmm...!!!!

Usually they do not raise the stamps for domestic and international letters at the same time here as well. This year it looks like we're safe, but it is already very expensive here to mail things. About €1.4 = 12 skr to anywhere in the world, but Sweden. Swedish post is VERY expensive. :(

Yes, I suppose it is more expensive here in general. When I'm in other countries on holiday I tend to notice that a lot of things are cheaper compared to here, like going out to eat at a restaurant, taking the taxi etc. When it comes to the post we used to have different rates for Sweden, Scandinavia, Europe and the rest of the world, but nowadays it is just two rates for 20 g letters. If the weight is more it is still varied rates for Europe/The rest of the world, but they skipped the Scandinavia part when they removed the proper post offices.. its quite some years ago since. I think the post still is fairly reliable in Sweden though but very expensive to use. Not that it is stopping me to use it. ;)
