Traveling? Lessons Learned From Being Abroad

Having just come back from a couple week excursion abroad, I wanted to share my successes with managing the roaming data battle.
Optimizing your data connection for roaming is in a nutshell really all about:

  • Preparing before you go
  • Optimizing your connections – I found that surgical strikes work best, that is, know what you need to do, go online and getting it done, then go offline.
  • And this is going to hurt but you are not going to want to use *any* photo, video or streaming music apps unless they support offline caching
