Not sure what people used to do before computers and ATM's and bank machines. It's so simple now when traveling to foreign countries because there are bank machines everywhere. Just pull out your bank card, get some cash, and your bank account back home is debited at a decent exchange rate. Oh, and our bank charges a fee. $3 every time we do it, so we'll try and budget ourselves well enough to only have to remove cash once during each country.
Fortunately, the Canadian Dollar has been doing very well against these currencies and so that will hopefully make our trip costs even cheaper than we expected.
The Canadian dollar versus the Czech Koruna.
vs the Polish Zloty
vs the Hungarian Forint
And vs the Euro.
Yesterday, the Canadian dollar touched an all time high versus the Euro. Strangely enough, the country of Slovakia uses the Euro. Now hopefully, the dollar will maintain these levels over the next couple of months!
And so the planning continues. It looks like we'll be flying Budapest to Manchester in order to return to England in early September...more about that when our flight is confirmed. Here's a look at what our approximate route will be like...
Sort of. Definitely not written in stone yet!
Not much going on here. Sat out the rain yesterday, and so far today it's overcast but no rain yet. Planning on a nice walk this afternoon, but we'll see what the weather's like when it's time to leave!
