Have you experienced a problem while traveling? What was the problem, and how did you deal with it? Describe in as much detail as possible.
A problem I had while traveling was a SIM card of Smartphone.
You know, the smart phone is really essential when you travel abroad, right?
I need Google maps for navigation, several reviews of websites as well.
Even the whole itinerary is also saved in the internet.
Therefore, accessing internet is really important when I travel.
It happened 3 years ago.
I received the SIM card from the company before going to San Francisco.
Of course, there was no chance to check whether the SIM was working or not in Korea. When I arrived at San Francisco, I inserted the new SIM to my phone. And then I realized that the SIM didn't work at all.
I fell in panic.
After taking a deep breath, I went to the store in the airport.
When I checked the price there, I was shocked.
It was almost 100 bucks per week. Crazy price.
I decided to buy it outside the airport.
After lenting a car, I drove to Stanford University which is near to the airport
I was a little scary. It was very hard driving a car without any navigation. Finally, I found T-mobile shop.
Then I bought SIM card, which had 3GB data per one month.
It was only 45 bucks.
From this incident, I learned that accessing the Internet while traveling is really important, and sometimes I need to prepare plan B just in case.
