With the dollar tanking, we're going to be more selective with our holidays and also spacing them out a bit more.

DH is keen to get a few things done around the house.

We are thinking our next cruise will be from here. But we go to NZ next year so at least we get more for our money

I've been checking out AussieWendy's post on Singapore and Sentosa Island. Had coffee with a friend this morning and they are going to go stay 7 nights on Sentosa Island. Airfares and accommodation are coming in under $5K for the 3 of them. Sure got me thinking!!

Me too. The dollar is starting to hit the bottom range of my planning exchange rate. I have a sneaking suspicion that we're heading back to 84 cents.

Looks like it's less shopping for us.

That's a good price. DH would like to go to Singapore.

My SIL has Marriott time share in Phuket and keeps trying to get us to go over. It turns out they get extra days for every guest they introduce or something. I'd rather go to Vietnam though.

Same here. I'm hoping someone buys our boat and camper trailer before we go or it's going to be bye bye Dooney bag from the Fantasy for me

I agree. Vietnam and Cambodia before Phuket.

But if you have access to timeshare accommodation for cheap.....it might be tempting.

Isn't the historical rate something around 70-odd cents though? If the dollar keeps sliding maybe the big retailers will quit pushing for GST on overseas purchases over $20
