Best Apps to Use: Airalo

Photo Credit: (

When I used to travel, I often used the Verizon travel pass for talk, text, and data. While this is a good option to have, I think it is more of a worst-case scenario, and not something that is sustainable for longer term stays (as it costs $10/day).

Traveling is really easy if you have T-Mobile, as most of their plans have automatic international data usage. If you have Verizon or AT&T (I believe) though, international data and roaming costs can be a challenge to figure out.

One great solution I recently discovered is Airalo, which is an app that allows you to buy E-sims (for individual countries, regions, or anywhere). When I went to Norway recently, I paid $10 for 3 GB of data; this did not come with texting or calling though, so it was only a data plan. I could have bought up to 10 GB of data for $20 though, and any of the plans could’ve been topped up at any point. Depending on the company and package, there are also options that can include text and calling.

If you are traveling abroad and looking for somewhere to get data, I would recommend checking out Airalo. I did have some problems with my messages when I got back from my trip, but it only took a day or so before my normal plan resumed to its normal activity (and I think the problem was caused by my primary carrier anyways).

This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.

NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.

I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
