- Time of past OR future Camino

Since I see I am not the only one enticed by the 100+GB/mo pre-paid Vodafone SIM cards, I thought I would share a couple of lessons from my use of one of them on my Camino earlier this summer. Perhaps it will aid in your planning:
- The "month" you get is not a calendar month. It is four weeks. So if you start it the 3rd of one month it won't last you through the 2nd of the next month as you might expect (except in February). It is likely to expire a few days earlier than you anticipate.
- You will get lots of text messages towards the end of the four weeks suggesting that you extend it and offering deals if you extend it early. If you extend it for another 28 days, those days do not begin when your current purchase ends. They begin immediately. So if you decide after two weeks you really want two months instead of one, and top up right away, you aren't getting 56 days, you are getting 42 days. You are getting all the data, and getting it right away, just fewer days to spend it in.
