Noticing details about data plans, travel, and jet lag

I feel like I have been living in some secluded area for ages. I have noticed details that I have never really paid close attention to.

Let's take my Internet plan at home. For years, I was on a monthly plan that gave me 300 GB of data. The nice, crazy part of this story is that my Internet service provider dropped the price that I was paying each month. I recently noticed on my bill that it also gave me unlimited data and I have been paying the same price. Where have I been?

It comes in handy. I stream a lot of programs these days. I cut my cable cord well over a year ago. Netflix and a bunch of programming on my Roku have filled in the void nicely. 

These days, I am in travel-planning mode. I am bringing two suitcases with me to Shanghai, simply because I can without paying extra. I have three sets of travel adapters. I actually appreciate the fact that I am that prepared.

Naturally, my guy is so used to travel that it's second nature to him. The only exception is jet lag. He is horrible at flipping over.

The last and only time that I was in Asia was Hong Kong. It took me a couple of days to flip over. We'll see how I do this time around. Here's to melatonin to help make the transition easier!


  1. I do envy your internet plan, CB...I only get 15 GB of data per month...that is the max plan! No streaming here. *sigh* Sounds like you're going to have a lovely holiday...hope you're leaving room in those suitcases for shopping. ;)

    Hugs and blessings...Cat

    1. Oh, wow. At least you do have data, but you certainly can't go crazy with streaming. Here's hoping that your data plans get better.

      My suitcases won't be full, so I hope to get some goodies while on vacation. =)
