My recent trip to the US went really well, even though I certainly missed my family. While in California, I used my mobile phone to happily talk to people there in the States and also folks back here at home. It was a sum total of about 68 minutes, including calls both sent and received.
Thanks to the incredible rates from Vodafone, I got a bill today showing that cost me a nice €96. For about an hour. Fuck that.
On the plus side, if I'd not used Skype for most of my longer chats with home, I'd be in really deep doo-doo. Lesson learned, Mr Vodafone Man.
Next time, I'll use MAXroam.
