Vacation Tips

Here in no particular order are some sites that might help you on a trip or while planning for a trip. Sadly this is purely academic for me; I’m not actually going on a trip any time soon.

Oanda http://www.oanda.com/

This is a great online money conversion tool.

Fahrenheit to Celsius Converter http://www.wbuf.noaa.gov/tempfc.htm

Now I can finally explain to my mother-in-law in Dublin how cold it really gets here!

Yahoo Weather http://weather.yahoo.com/

Enter your zip for a 5+ day forecast or click through the menus to find local weather around the globe.

SideStep http://www.sidestep.com

Searches 100 travel web sites to show you the best deals. (Looking for more sites like this? Here’s a good review on travel search engines: http://www.consumersearch.com/www/internet/travel-sites/index.html.)  

BabelFish http://babelfish.altavista.com/

A web site translation tool, you can ask it to translate a block of text or entire web site. If you have a web site you can provide a quick link to this site from your own so that people can easily translate your site. The translations aren’t perfect – but probably better than I can do with a dated French Minor.
