I have my Master’s in advance French translation. I have never been and finally I am making the trip in April of 2009. One of my girlfriends is going to be my travel mate for the first week, then her boyfriend is coming.

My husband has absolutely no interest in going,which is okay with me for one reason only.. When I shop for shoes and OH I will, I do not want to be rushed.

Anyway, I am looking for some tips from anyone that has some to offer..

      I just got back from Europe I visited France, Switzerland, Italy and Spain. To my disappointment because of the Euro and the week dollar nothing was within the reach.

      Here is an example. A Prada woman’s shoe (sorry don’t know the name now) were 265 Euros which is greater than $430.00 and that was on Sale. Last week I saw them at Neiman’s for $245.00 not on sale.

      Europe is fantastic, but shop we should do at home.

    • Hi Chanel,  

      I have to agree with Yana here. I’ve been to Germany last year. Though I bought a few shoes that fit me (I have small feet), and some shirts that looked cool on my husband, the exchange rate was not something one could take advantage of.  

      Do shop home, afterall, you’ll boost your own economy.
