Dear Australian Dollar: Yeah, thanks. Really.
I hate foreign currency. Estimating how much I'll need, trying to figure out ways to access it while I'm away, and then the whole debacle that is changing from one currency to another just so that I can change to yet another currency in a few more days. Not to mention the fact that the US dollar, the ugliest monopoly money on the face of the planet, always gets up and kicks the Aussie dollar's backside precisely when I need to actually buy some. It's just such a damned hassle all 'round.
Travelling with ATM cards &c is, as far as I'm concerned, bloody brilliant. If only I chose to visit countries that had, you know, ATMs, I'd be set.
7 sleeps to go.
