All I see are signs, dollar signs that is

If you’ve ever been to a hole in the wall taco joint or pho restaurant, you know how important having cash is. Or even if you’ve been to those random gift shops or liquor stores that have a “cash minimum” otherwise you get charged some nonsense fee. Now imagine you are overseas, think about how much more important it is to have cash on you. And not to mention – you want to avoid potential credit card fees for using your card outside of the US. Lucky for you, TravelWithGrant highlights the best ways to exchange US dollars for local currency.

“I need a vacation after my vacation”

A common phrase used by pretty much every American after they just went on a so-called vacation. And why does this phrase ring true for so many of us? Is it because we want to make sure we visit every Instagram worthy spot and check out all those hyped up ice cream places and restaurants? Not too mention take yet another sunset or waterfall picture to post and show off to all of our followers. Well, this is definitely a 21st century problem. However, TravellingTheWorld may have a solution with the recent post on maximizing your time on a vacation within three days and without feeling burnt out at the end of your “vacation.”
