When traveling abroad, internet connection is one of the most important things I consider when planning my trip. Connecting to the internet while traveling to other countries is a bit tricky as well as pricey. Of course, you have to deal with expensive roaming charges, unlocking your phone to make it compatible with other networks, having to buy a new SIM Card and purchase prepaid credits are just some of the many problems we may face just to be able to connect to the internet when abroad. So much hassle right?!
How important is it really to stay connected to the internet when traveling abroad? For me, it is very important when I travel. It lets me share my travel experience to my friends, communicate with my family back home and to do some work.
Just recently, I traveled to Japan for a Familiarization Tour of Osaka organized by Cebu Pacific Air. I brought with me a Flytpack Travel WiFi Router that Flytpack PH lent me before I flew out of the Philippines. Flytpack is a portable wireless modem that connects any WiFi-enabled device to the internet with a secured network connection. It's like the WiFi we have at home, just smaller, in a pocket size version. The best thing is, it's portable - so, you can bring it anywhere you go with fast and reliable data connection. Yey!
From the moment we arrived in Osaka (Kansai International Airport), I switched the router on, connect to the SSID WiFi, entered the password and voila! I'm connected to the world! Yes! As easy as that! FLYTPACK Travel WiFi is pre-configured and does not require any complex installation. No need for any additional configuration or setting-up. Just turn it on and connect! I loved it!
Having a FlytPack WIFI Router with me and being connected to the internet all the time, helped me a lot in exploring Osaka, Kyoto and Shiga Prefectures. It lets me update my social media accounts, post a live video in Facebook, use Google maps, research for good restaurants when I want to eat or look for nice places to visit where ever I may be. Certainly, a portable WIFI router such as the Flytpack Travel WiFi is one of the must-must travel essentials you should not forget when traveling abroad.

As you can see, I've posted as many photos and videos I could in my social media accounts because I am always connected to the internet anywhere I go as long as I have my Flytpack Travel WiFi Router with me. What could be better than that?
