Ah, a summer vacation — we’re going to Sweden to visit my aunt, and then going to Italy for some relaxing, and for me to attend a conference. Should be great, right?
Well, we’re flying to Sweden on Thai Airlines, and our flight goes through Bangkok. We only have a layover, but things are not good in Bangkok right now. And in Europe, there’s that Icelandic volcano which may or may not be continuing to screw things up (although flights from Asia into Stockholm shouldn’t be too affected).
On the bright side, the economic problems in Europe means that the Euro is weak against the won and the dollar, so we’ll have lots of money to spend — last summer, when I was in Austria, it was about 1750 won to a Euro, but right now it’s about 1420 won to a Euro and steadily declining.
