As a travel blogger we’re sometimes accused of being massive holiday braggers on social media, sharing sunsets, beers, cocktails, beautiful beaches, mountain tops and stunning historical buildings. For us it’s just part of being a travel blogger, trying to inspire and to show people just what we’re experiencing wherever we are in the world.
Just today, I’ve cancelled my existing mobile phone contract as it really wasn’t working for me. I’ve been finding myself picking up extra data charges and on occasions, a large bill for daring to use some data abroad. As a travel blogger you’re constantly hunting for a good wifi connection because you don’t dare use your data roaming without the fear of facing that big bill once you return to the UK.
Above: A few of my own braggie attempts on my travels.
Being in quite a flexible position (not actually having a mobile contract right now) it’ll be a great opportunity to test out Three’s Feel At Home tariff whilst traveling. Available on Pay Monthly or Pay As You Go, Feel At Home lets you use your UK minutes and data allowances just like you would if you were in the UK. The list of destination countries where Feel At Home applies is growing rapidly and currently includes Indonesia, Hong Kong, USA, Sweden, Australia amongst many others.

I’m looking forward to being able to land at an airport without panicking that my mobile data roaming is switched on and that I’ve incurred charges without actually looking at my phone. I’m hoping that it’ll give me even more freedom to upload, share, tweet, facebook and check-in without being chained to the hotel or restaurant WiFi!
