Money Changing – Travelex sux

Ha ha…you know I don’t bag many things and am pretty positive. Check this out though. Having just completed a tour of Australia, every ATM in every airport is a Travelex ATM, as are all the money changers. This, by the way makes Australia the only country out of the 75 I have been too where my ATM card doesnt work. Not enough fees to deduct, whereas they can slug my Visa. I learned that in January, but check this out. I wanted to swap some Kiwi for AUD. The current rate as per the bank internet sites is $1.29NZ for $1.00AUD.

Travelex’s rate is $1.41NZ, and on top they charge a fee of $10. So my $100AUD cost $151NZD, I paid 22% more to use their services than a bank or standard ATM. Folks AVOID TRAVELEX at all costs.

last night we were in Bali showing Dreamcatchers at the Canggu Club. A lighter crowd than expected but it was great to see what people who didn’t know me or the film thought, and they were blown away. The feedback again was exceptional. Thanks Bali

Thanks also to Jane & Eddie who graciously gave us their awesome villa at Seri ( This really is agreat place to stay whilst in Bali. I am writing this from Jakarta where we have 40 people coming tommorow to see Dave Rogers and myself run a write, speak and train one day workshop, followed by more people meeting us for the evening event.

Last weekend Glen Levy and I ran Rock your Mind Body & Spirit with Fortune events on the gold coast. It was a fascinating event full of exceptional moments. Here is just one piece of feedback from one participant.

“My son and I attended Rock Yr Life last weekend.
I feel very humbled to have been given mike’s blessing to contribute by helping spread the word of his work and his passion.

The course was just wonderful, considering I only went to take my son…
The boys shared from their heart, and definitely walked their talk – shifting consciousness from the stage with their wisdom and knowledge and intention

(PLUS – I’ve lost 3 kilos and 7 inches from my waist, arms, hips etc from the exercises and the advice which helped shift the emotional baggage.. thank you x)”

Check out Glen Levy at where you will see him featuring in some amazing programs such as teh new National Geographic Fight Science. Glen truly is the best in the world at what he does… its amazing. Go on…check it out.

So here is a few photos from the event, beware of Travelex and I will see you soon. I love travel its so random. Today 3 flights on different airlines left from Bali to Jakarta from the same gate. Talk about confusion…ha ha
