Hopefully an old friend from high school will be able to go with me. ^^ That'd be nice.
For the trip I've done the math for my cash requirements, $750-800 for 2 weeks.
The hotel and flight will be paid by credit card and by then I'll have enough vacation hours to not be set back.
I think the hotel is so cute!
As far as money conversion, apparently ATMs at 7/11s are the way to go.
