I have a friend who is from Germany, and has been working in the US for the last two years. He has one more year on his contract here, and is then moving back to Germany. He has been making some serious bank while here, but is worried about exchanging back to euro and losing a crap load of money.
He wants to spend most of his money on items here in the US so he won't get raked over the coals during exchange.
What kind of things would you spend $10,000+ on that you could take back to europe? At first I thought he should just buy gold, but I think that will get treated as currency by customs.
