  1. Hi Saveu
    Great job on converting the money. It is a very long task and you did it well. Keep up the good work.

  2. Talofa Saveu,

    Converting all the different currencies around the world can often be tricky and confusing, well done on getting them all right in your conversions! Usually I just pop into the bank and they sort it all out for me easy peasy.

    Why do you think some countries are more expensive to go to than others? Mexico is over 7 times more expensive to travel to than Australia, why do you think that might be? Often when I'm looking to travel somewhere, I'll wait for a while and keep checking online to see if they have any sales to try and pick my flights up cheaper if I can. Have you ever been to one of these countries on this list? I've been to Australia before, but none of the other ones... Yet!

    Congratulations on completing another Bonus Activity Saveu, good stuff.
