I have been keeping and eye on the prices to Europe and they keep going up! Will this continue or should I wait a little longer to buy my tickets? They are now almost $200 more than when I first saw them!!

sorry to say that they're probably going to keep going up... try to buy before the end of march if you can! where are you flying in to? Usually London is the least expensive, followed by Paris, followed by Amsterdam... but it always just depends. good luck!!

oh wait... when are you planning to leave? that may make a difference too.

Can't believe it but was able to find a flight from NY to A-dam on this site cheaper than most would get me to London......Which is a big deal, England does not fascinate me like the main continent of Europe.....Plus not flying into London saves me some $ when I cross the channel....

Dunno if it has anything to do with it, but the exchange rate is pretty weird right now... on the news it said that its set to soar to a whopping $2 to the £1... which means its well cheap for naughties like me to come and buy stuff in your loverrrly country, but DAMN EXPENSIVE for you guys to buy stuff over here...

Boo for you... but yay for me... (just jokes! )

Well, 1 Euro is currently worth $1.24 US dollars right now...

I've actually been thinking of currency-trading sometime. I think the Euro and Chinese Yuan both have GREAT growth potential. Anyone up on how to do this?

DAMN!!!!!!!!!!!! I need the dollar to get strong quick! I've only got two weeks until my little jump across the pond (only a week, which means I am still expected to come back with presies)!
