- Year of past OR future Camino
Portugal route from Lisbon in May (2015)
Via de la Plata from Seville in April-May 2017
I don't want or need to call home, blog, post on Facebook, make a travel log, or check email daily. No twitter, no Instagram. No need to read the daily news. No GPS. It's a time to unplug from (most of) the world. My Sprint/CDMA phone will not work there, although I'll carry it for no other reason for using it in the states when traveling. It will be my pictures to show and music when needed. Have a little point-and-shoot camera for taking pictures (more capacity than the phone). I don't understand SIM cards. At first I thought I would not want to call ahead to make reservations. In an emergency, I wouldn't know who to call. So - why would I need a local phone? The more I look at the Guide book, I'm thinking in SOME cases I might want to call ahead for that evening or return flight info. But not always. Anyway, what are thoughts about buying a temporary pre-paid phone? Will it work in both Portugal and Spain?
