    TRAVELING OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES
    Before you go anywhere I recommend visiting The US State Department's http://travel.state.gov informs American travelers about travel documents and safety. Their website includes information on passports and tourist visas. It also has "Consular Information Sheets" for every country in the world with basic information on geography, health care, safety issues, embassy locations, and more. In regions where there is political or economic instability, the website also includes "Travel Warnings" explaining the conditions.
     
    Keep in mind that State Department travel warnings are very conservative and are sometimes overstated. If a warning is issued in an area where you're going, stay up-to-date on the news so you can make an informed decision about your plans. Some travelers in search of a second opinion prefer the warnings put out by the U.K. Foreign and Commonwealth Office http://www.fco.gov.uk.
     
    With the bird flu flying around, it is best to check the Centers for Disease Control http://www.cdc.gov/travel for updated information on every country. Or in the USA call for 24-hour recorded voice 1-888-232-3228.
     
   

Check Exchange rates and get an “FX Cheat Sheet” that allows you to create and print a currency converter table before you take your next trip! Visit http://www.oanda.com. The “FX Cheat Sheet” can be found on the left side of the home page under “Travelers.”

   
    http://www.worldclimate.com has useful monthly temperature and rainfall averages for thousands of destinations worldwide. You can plan your vacations avoiding rainy seasons or droughts. It can also assist you in deciding what to pack.
     
    Traveling through Europe by Car, Bus, Tube or Ferry?
Traveling by subway? Subways (metro, underground, tube, whatever...) are a more inexpensive way to travel and are often faster that taxis and busses. This website provides maps and diagrams for subways all over the world - New York, Moscow, Paris, London, Boston and many more. It even lets you check stops, plan your trip and provides estimated time.
