Traveling can serve as an excellent excuse to disconnect from the world, especially from nagging emails and the self-induced pressure to update social media accounts with statuses and photos of the trip. For mobile phone addicts; however, there are a handful of ways to stay connected even when thousands of miles away from home.
One way to stay locked in with your mobile world is to purchase a personal hotspot, like the model offered by Skyroam. Skyroam provides a personal internet connection for you wherever you are, but there is a small price to pay. Only $10 per day gets you unlimited data in more than 90 countries around the world. The internet will be accessible only by your mobile device, which ensures a secure connection and protects your data.
This may seem like a hefty price to pay for budget travelers, but considering the roaming charges that exist with most mobile phone plans, the price may be worth it for those who can´t go days without a Facebook update.
Skyroam´s mobile hotspot connects to laptops, tablets and mobile devices, and no subscription is necessary to take advantage of the unlimited data. Skyroam also offers the possibility to rent the device for a trial period on your next trip, and then return it when your trip has finished.
For some reason when everyone hears snow is coming, they runs to the store for milk and bread. They are definitely not the first things I run to the store for. Instead of milk and bread, make sure you have these things stocked up to have the best snow day yet.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
