The euro is killing me. Well, not really killing me but giving me a good swift kick in the gut. The last time I was in Italy they were still using lire…yes it was that long ago. So I’m not used to the euro and certainly not used to the exchange rate. With the euro remaining strong and kicking butt on the currency market (sorry don’t know financial jargon) I think the most expensive part of my trip is…no not the plane ticket…but the spending money.
Granted I’m not going to need a ton of money where I’m going and I don’t plan to do much travelling outside of Carpanzano but I just know I’ll come face to face with a purse I can’t say good-bye to or a pair of shoes that desperately need a home. I guess I’m just going to have to get really good on my bargaining skills. Anyone have any tips?
