I know I’m supposed to be the one sharing tips here, though I’ve never been disappointed with the suggestions you guys have provided, between the Macbook Air and Canon S95 I purchased as a result of the suggestions on this blog, so I’ll go for it again.
So I’m curious, what do you all do as far as staying connected when traveling? Probably out of sheer laziness, my phone goes into airplane mode as soon as I board an international flight, and stays that way until I land back in the US. To some extent it’s part of what makes vacations peaceful for me, though I realize I need to be a bit more “connected” when traveling. I use my laptop to connect to the internet, and use Skype for any phone calls I have to make, though that makes me completely unreachable when I’m spending hours a day walking around in a new city.
As I’m about to embark on a two week international journey, I’d be curious to hear what y’all do. I’m guessing most business travelers use their work phones, but for those of you that are leisure travelers, what do you do? Do you turn your phone off for the whole trip or do you sign up for some sort of an international plan? If so, do you use it just for web, or do you also make calls?
For what it’s worth I use AT&T, so I’d be curious to hear if anyone has any suggestions. If nothing else, it would be nice to Tweet from Qantas A380 first class with a glass of champagne by my side. 😉
