Money, money, money

One of the great things about traveling is checking out all of the currencies around the globe. It certainly takes some added mathematics to sort everything out when landing in a new country, but it is always an experience to see what money is worth in other countries.

Right now my wallet is bulging with currencies from multiple countries. I haven’t had this many different currencies since traveling in Europe before the Euro. Right now I have AFS from Afghanistan, Euros, U.A.E. (United Arab Emirates) Dirhams, or AEDs, Singapore Dollars, Malaysian Ringgit, Vietnamese Dong, and tomorrow I’ll have Thai Baht.

Luckily the travel wallet that James bought me for our anniversary has lots of different pockets, but I do have to pay attention to what currency I’m pulling out. Luckily I’ve had fifteen years of practice converting currency in what is now my fortieth country traveled to!
