Okay so I hope this doesn’t sound really dumb - I know wifi is available in most places you go or stay on the tour and personal internet can be fairly expensive, but I wanted to know if anyone has (or is looking into) used a portable modem or mifi device in Europe and/or on a topdeck trip?
I don’t really want to spend every waking hour online, nor will I be, but I was really wanting it for times such as being on the bus - as I know they can be quite long trips and I think having internet access might help the bordem (i’ve heard contiki has free wifi on their coaches too, but its not enough for me to change sides )
I am planning on taking an iPad (not 3g) and one of options I have looked at is buying a portable modem via ebay and then getting a pay-as-you-go plan whilst im in Europe. I will be there for about 2 months after my trip (49 Mega European) so it would be good if I could have it then too.
Would love to hear your thoughts!
