Well I've booked my first two nights at a Youth Hostel in Belgium.
For my first two nights I was going to find a cheap hotel, however with the cost being around £80.00 for the two nights I decided to book a bed in the Youth Hostel dorm for just under £40.00 (got to remember I'm on a budget).
Being in a dorm will be a new experience (which I've talked about in a post or two earlier) and I'm looking forward to it ... Brussels here I come!
I've also purchased a SIM card from the Hosteling International Association; it's one that works in 130 countries world wide (every country I'm planning on visiting apart from Laos) which means I don't have to keep buying SIM cards for each country and it's a 'Pay as You Go' ... so no contracts.
As for cost of calls, well from Europe to the UK it's around £0.18 per minute with no connection cost and listening to my voice mails is free!
So with all those benefits I jumped at the chance (quickly ... possibly too quickly as usual) and bought one. Now all I need to do is get my phone unlocked.
A link to the SIM card web page is here: http://www.yha.ekit.com/ekit/home and I'll add this link to my 'links post'.
Until next time
