I remember my first trip overseas (I was 20 I think) – it was to London in 1987. The pound was approximately 1.5 to the dollar – not very good. Today the pound is almost equal to the dollar and will probably be weak against most currencies for sometime, until the world figures out the effects of “Brexit”. Don’t forget that there are several “places” that use the British Pound to include: England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, as well as, Gibraltar and all of the other British Territories (I heard the Isles of Man and Guernsey are cool).
So if you have ever had any of these places on your bucket list – go now while you get a lot more for your money!
