Dreams of Traveling Deferred

I wonder if I will ever be able to afford to travel through Europe again:

1 Euro = 1.575 US Dollars
1 British Pound = 2.00 US Dollars

Tack on top of the exchange rate that hotel rooms are super expensive in the major cities anyway even with a good exchange rate, and it appears I would be bankrupting myself with mere dreams of returning to Paris or Amsterdam. A hyperbole, of course, but my point stands. It scares me that so many foreign business people are purchasing for sale and foreclosed properties over here – we have gone from a Superpower to the land of bargains for overseas investors.

At least we’re even again with the Canadian dollar – one of those is equal to 1.004 US dollars today.
