My wedding adventures take me to yet another new country :) And what’s doubly awesome here is that I get to collect some more brand new currency for my collection! I love other people’s money! Haha…
Last month’s trip to Canada squared me away with North America, and then Eurotrip did me well for the Euro, and now we get to grab some sexy Polish Zloty! (well, I don’t know if it’s sexy yet since I have yet to see some in person, but if that image up there is any indication I’m sure they’ll be just as shiny and colorful as all other non-US bills out there.)
Which reminds me, why are ours so green? My British friend was asking the other day and I didn’t know what to tell him except for that we’re just not that creative ;) Although to be fair our currency IS pretty ornate – even though it hasn’t been updated in quite some time (ever?). I also like how historic and “founding father-ish” our bills currently look, despite my curiosity if more color and sizes are coming out in the near future. Other countries have different sizes to help the blind (at least that’s why I think they do it?) and I think it would be awesome if we started going down that road too.
Then again, I have no expertise in in these dolla dolla bills, all I know is how to COLLECT them ;) Both in my savings account, and in my currency album! (like a big ol’ nerd, haha…) So while those other fools snatch up trinkets and magnets and all other sorts of souvineers out there, this homeboy is taking back some cold hard cash. Regardless if it’s worth anything here in the U.S. or not ;)
So hold down the fort for me! Enjoy the guest posts I’ve got coming up and I’ll see ya when I’m back. You can always follow my antics on Twitter if you miss me – W00T!
