When travelling to Britain

Greetings everyone!  I'm Jayna Sheffield at the business desk and I can't believe that we're already at the mid week point.  Time flies when you're having fun?
This evening I'd like to answer some queries from some of our readers who have been emailing us with questions on what they should be preparing for if they decide to travel to England either for a visit or to work.  Firstly, there is a difference in the power supply between North America and Britain.  In fact, Britain and Europe have the same type of voltages and power supply, North America and the Caribbean have the same type but there is a difference between each continent.
When travelling to Britain and if you decide to take along things such as your computer, blow dryer, and any other appliance or piece of equipment that requires an outlet, you will need to purchase special power adapters to fit the British circuitry. 
If you're taking along a cell phone, then make very sure that your phone will work in Britain.  The best thing may be for you to purchase a phone in Britain while you're there and use it to make calls back to North America.  You would probably run into problems if you were to take your cell phone from here as the long distance charges for you to use your phone from there to call here may be sky high.  The roaming charges may be very high and it would indeed be better to buy or even rent a phone while in Britain. 
Another thing that you can do is to buy prepaid long distance cards in England and use them to call back to North America.  It would be a lot cheaper than purchasing a cell phone and these days those prepaid long distance cards are extremely cheap and well priced.
Make sure that your clothes are adequate enough to stand up to the changeable British weather.  Be sure to check out the type of weather to be expected at the time of your travel.
It may also be better to buy your British currency (pounds Sterling) when you get to England.  Sometimes you can use your debit card while there to withdraw money but best to check with your financial institute before going on your trip.  Of course the always dependable credit card will work for you. 
That's it!  There are definitely more tips but these are the more important ones.  Before you leave us tonight check out the best seller Untapped Wealth Discovered.  This book has tons of ideas for those of you who are looking for entrepreneurial opportunities that are safe, logical, and free from scammers and scams.
You can purchase Untapped Wealth Discovered either from this website, or from
Enjoy your evening.
