Avoiding Currency Problems When Traveling Abroad – By: Carrie LeBlanc

It can be exciting and scary to travel abroad. There are many thing’s to be worried about. Some of them being language, signs, traffic patterns, different types of food, and different kinds of money. Every Country, except for the US, has money that is colorful. It will take planning not to overpay or be charged high fees.

The first thing you will want to plan for is exchange rates.

Different foreign currencies are not the same as the US Dollar. They vary from one day to the next. They can even fluctuate every few minutes. Most foreign exchange retailers will not let you know until the end of the day so you need to keep an eye on the internet. Plus you get a better idea of the true rate from the internet than you will from most foreign currency retailers. It will not be easy to protect yourself from this when you plan your vacation.

It is always a good idea to exchange money as little as possible. Do some research and budgeting before your trip. Try to only exchange once when you first get to your destination. Leisure travel usually requires more money than business travel. The reason for this is because many tourist spots require cash.

If you decide you want to use a credit card, call the credit card company before you leave to see if they charge fees for using your card abroad. You will need to let your credit card company know where you’re going so they won’t deactivate it when you try to use it. It would be best to use the one with the lowest fees on it.

It is usually safer to use a credit card abroad than cash. Most credit card companies can get you another card in that Country if your credit card gets lost or stolen. If you’re traveling as a family, split all credit cards between the adults. That way if one spouse loses their card the other spouse will have the other one and you won’t be stuck. If you do lose one of your cards call the credit card company immediately to report it missing.

If you use a debit card guard it carefully and only use it at an ATM. It’s not as protected as a credit card.

With these tips you can now enjoy your trip!

Scribbled Thought’s: A Scary Short Story Part Two By: Carrie LeBlanc



After we had died, somehow we reawakened, but yet, we were not ourselves.

We were like hideous monster’s, Thirsting for blood. We have now turned half human but with the ability to change into wolves. When we would turn into wolves, we could not feel any pain. Every time we thirsted and would bite a person they too would become one of us.

Tonight happens to be a full moon and we are getting hungry. We start shape shifting into wolves and head down to the village. It is dark and people are asleep, which gives us an advantage.

We gathered in a pack, terrorizing the villager’s and livestock. Going from house to house feasting on anything that was still alive.

Now it’s time to rest… Until next time.

Great Salad’s To Have During Fall – By: Carrie LeBlanc

Five Great Salad’s To Have During Fall


Hi. These are some really great salad’s to have during the fall holiday.

1. Try making your favorite summer salads using winter produce. Instead of your normal summer pasta salad, try making it with different ingredients. Begin with whole grain tortellini, or ravioli cook it as the package instructs. You can add kale or swiss chard. I prefer to cut up an onion and a clove of garlic. You can cut up 2 if you really like a lot of garlic. Sauté them in olive oil until golden and soft. Put in 3 to 4 cups of greens. Make sure they are washed, the stalks are cut off, and they are cut into ribbon slices. Cook it until the greens are wilted. Mix the cooked vegetables with the pasta, and add shredded Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper.

2. Here is a recipe for winter Panzanelia. It is a salad of roasted butternut squash and whole wheat raisin bread. Add a bed of spinach, apple cider dressing, and olive oil.

3. Now for the traditional Caesar salad. Start with a head of Romaine lettuce, add a handful of radicchio, and some peppery baby arugela. Throw on a splash of olive oil, lemon juice, and lot’s of cracked pepper. Put some shredded Parmesan cheese on top. If you want a French taste, you can add some endive, sliced apples, and walnuts.

4. Wanting something with grain’s? Try cooking faro. Add some wheat berries and quinoa.

5. Here is a great wheat berry salad recipe. Start with putting frozen sweet corn and cherry tomatoes, which are great for fall. Add faro, (or wheat berries and barley). Add with roasted butternut squash, toasted walnuts, and some balsamic vinaigrette.

6. Try having a wilted spinach salad. Add bacon, a hard boiled egg, and pour some sweet and sour sauce on top.

7. Holiday leftovers can make for great salad making’s. For a weeknight dinner make a bowl of fresh lettuce, chopped vegetables like cucumber, tomatoes, and red bell pepper. And add a few slice’s of grilled steak. Or for something different you can take sautéed green beans or carrots, roasted potatoes, roast beef, or turkey can also make for a great salad.

There are idea’s for salad’s you can have year round.
