Being in a foreign country can be quite challenging. The moment you land at the airport, the unfamiliarity of everything can be scary, overwhelming, and exciting — all at the same time. Figuring out how to work the train ticket machines, finding the best way to get to your hotel, and other seemingly mundane tasks can be hard, most especially if you have zero knowledge and skills of the local language. This is when internet access comes in handy, and can help make your trip a lot less stressful and terrifying.
