My plan is to embark on a year-long round-the-world trip at the end of year (roughly Dec 2016), but I'm having difficulty in deciding how to fund the trip amidst fluctuations in the benchmark currencies. As an expat living in Korea, I'm wondering which currency I should exchange for. [more inside]
How to get the best conversion rate (GB Pound to US Dollar)? I've been working in London for the past year, trying to save up money for grad school when I return to the states. I was told that December was the best month of the year to do a GBP to USD conversion (not too sure how accurate that is). I bank with Barclays (England) and Chase (US) and am in the states at the moment. I've brought the money (in GBP) over because I thought it would give me more conversion options. I know that it can get complicated with conversion rates changing, various banks with their own exchange rates, etc. I'm willing to open an online bank account if that's the best option to transfer pounds to dollars. Are there any conversion geniuses out there who can help give me any tips? Many thanks! D
My wife and I are planning a trip to Europe in September. I understand the EURO has decreased significantly in value. Would a member know a USA Bank or agency to contact to exchange dollars for EUROs this month I would like to take advantage of the dollars strength?

Would I be able to purchase an 80 Gig Ipod more cheaply in Mexico City than in the US?
Like many UK people, I earn some money in dollars: Adsense and Cafepress mostly. Whilst the exchange rate is poor, it would make a sense to leave this money in the US and only collect, as and when the rate changes significantly in my favour. Any one got any experience with a UK based person setting up US dollar savings account with good interest?

Is there a website that catalogs the daily exchange rates between countries? For example, if I wanted to know the exchange rate from Canadian to American dollars on July 27, 2005?
