If you're like me then you love to keep your friends and family updated with all the latest goings on when you're on holiday or on a round the world trip. There's nothing better than seeing something spectacular, such as a sunset or iconic tourist site, and sharing it instantly with the world. Sometimes you're travelling alone and you want to be able to have someone else enjoy the moment with you, social media and email are perfect for this!
Personally I always used to get hassled by my folks and friends back home because they would be kept waiting for months until I returned to show them the pictures that I had taken and tell them all the stories that I had collected along the way. So I decided that I had to make a real effort to let them know what was happening, not only to keep them happy but also to hopefully inspire them to travel as well.
Of course to be able to share thing instantly with people you're going to need an internet connection! Yes, you can go to internet cafes or use the wifi at the guest-house, but that means that you can't Skype your loved ones from an awe inspiring place and let them see what you're seeing in real time.
I used to think it was difficult to stay connected and also expensive, that is especially the case if you use roaming which we all know costs an absolute fortune and should be avoided at all costs! It was when I was on on a trip to Spain that I finally realised how easy it was to be online the whole time and not have my wallet feel the effect. So there I was about to head out to Spain knowing that I had to be in contact with home 24/7, so I started to look for all day internet Spain options. Of course there were plenty of way over priced offers out there but then I cam across something that I knew I had to get - a portable wifi device! I found the all day internet package that came with a portable device at a great rate, I had to double check the price because it really was that good! I only wanted to connect my phone when I was out but when I realised that I could connect 5 devices at the same time I was in heaven, it meant that I could blog whilst sitting in some of the most amazing locations which allowed me to really express how I felt at that moment.
I had my phone, laptop and iPad all going at one time, amazing right? What's more is that the device was so easy to carry I could bring it everywhere with me, I left it switched on and in my back pack whilst I chatted, tweeted and shared every on social media. The connection was quick because I was directly using a Spanish 3G network. This has to be a must for any tourists that are heading to Spain! 3G on the move wherever you are without having to pay crazy roaming costs, you simply can't beat it! So if any of you are heading to Spain soon then I advise you to get on to this asap, I promise that it will make your trip much more fun and your friends will love it too!Add a comment Add a comment
