A few months back I posted a blog entry, Travel Extras. Here are a few more.
Currency is a free app for iPhone and is available also for Android and HP devices. It is a simple to use currency converter. The 500 Costa Rican Colones to the US dollar is easy to convert but when the Indonesia Rupia is 9700 to the dollar it can be confusing.
You can edit to display your favorite currencies and conversion is simple in either direction. It stays up to date and … Oh, it is free!
TSA changes what you can and cannot bring on board but it always comes down to the discretion of the screening agent. Screwdrivers are a hit or miss. I solved the need for a flat blade to mount a tripod plate or housing mount by placing a large fender washer in my CF card holder.
It is simple and works great. Take a look below. BONUS! TSA will soon be allowing small pocket knifes like a Swiss Army knife, but international may not. Safe travels.
