How I Prepare for a Trip Abroad (Part 2): Money, Language, & BONUS: Buying Plane Tickets

ezgif-2-d4cb38535bIt’s time for Part 2! Are you excited, because I know I sure am! This blog post is the reason why I got out of bed this morning. Haha.

Plus it’s been very rainy here, which turns me into a zombie. Thus, getting up was a little hard, until I remembered that I would be writing this post for you guys, and publishing it today!

As some of you will know, I have been toying with the idea of travel blogging while I’m away on my trip this May. By this point, I know for sure that I will be writing a series of posts, although I am still figuring out how they will be set up and such. Some time last night, while mulling this all over, I realized that some of you might not be interested only in the trip itself, but also the days leading up to it. I know that before I started traveling (especially traveling on my own), that I did a lot of research regarding packing, and other such preparations. Now, I want to hopefully be “that person” who wrote “that article” which helped someone prepare for and plan out their trip! This is the second installment in the series, and if you’re interested in reading Part 1, you can do so here! If you want to read Part 2 now, please read on!
