17 Jun Love a good ‘Braggie’? Brag Your Way to a Holiday with Three UK!
Forget the #selfie; being a travel blogger means I’m inevitably a bit of a bragger. From pictures of sunsets, to legs by the pool and cocktails on the beach, my Instagram feed is definitely filled with a #braggie or two in my attempt to inspire you to see the world.
A big part of my job is keeping my social media accounts updated, but the main problem I’ve had when travelling is those pesky data roaming charges. Now my contract’s almost at an end I’m quite happy to leave my current mobile phone provider and move on to pastures new. Several months back I received a mobile phone bill that came to £210 due to data roaming fees! I could have bought a flight with that!
I try to leave my data roaming off and look for Wi-Fi hotspots, but sometimes I just can’t resist and I end up turning it on again to upload the odd picture, use Google Maps or check my emails. That’s when I get stung with hefty fees!
That means no more nasty surprises on my bill! Hellooo Internet!
