Subject: Re: Travelling or staying home this year?
Hi Frances and other Ziners:

We were sort of planning to go to Germany this year but are putting it off. It's not the disturbances around the world so much as it is the rise of the euro. When we went to Europe a few years ago we could buy a euro for $0.87. Last May when we were there a euro cost us $0.93. And now a euro costs $1.14. That's a huge drop. It wasn't the only factor in deciding to postpone, but it was a factor.
