This is a sponsored post from Detroit Party Bus Company. You will see some of my discoveries of food and drink from my recent Paris trip. I totally agree on “Dining like a local at your travel destination” and enjoy the tips. 🙂

Dining like a local at your travel destination

One of the best parts about traveling to new destinations is sampling the food. Whether you’re a fan of experiencing the local restaurants or bustling farmers markets, there’s something to be said about sinking your teeth into the local flavors. There’s no better way to get acquainted with a culture than by eating the food! Not only does food bring people together, but it also offers comfort when you’re in an unfamiliar place. It’s easy to find recommendations going the route of checking out the hotels directory in your room, but don’t you want to enjoy a dining experience without all of the frivolous tourist gimmicks? We’re here to help you find the best destinations for eating out when you’re traveling, and not just any selections…the ones that the locals enjoy!

While it would be nice to know somebody in every corner of the world to get trusted recommendations from, that usually isn’t the case. However, you can get ahead of the game by seeking out local resources like newspapers or regional magazines which are often found at welcome centers, convenience stores and airports. These publications are great because they are constantly updated with new, up and coming restaurants and bars to consider checking out. If you’re a social butterfly, this is your time to shine! It’s easy to meet somebody around town who has knowledge of the locality and is willing to share their secrets with you if you simply ask. It’s a good idea to be flexible in your search for food if you don’t have dietary restrictions, as that opens up many more options to you and whoever you might be traveling with.

If you have the ability to access the internet, you’ll definitely want to use this helpful resource! Tripadvisor is one of the best places to start searching, they have interest specific guides by city and tons of recommendations for restaurants, sight seeing, shopping, and nightlife. You can seek out local businesses using hashtags on social media outlets like Twitter and Instagram to get a feel for where the activity is taking place. It’s not uncommon to find targeted advertisements and deals as well as region specific accounts with relevant information when you’re searching on social media outlets, so keep your eyes peeled! Another option is to download an app like Zomato where you can search restaurants by locality, cuisine, and view photos of entrees from their menu. It’s available in a number of countries for your convenience. Remember to keep your posts private for safety if you’re using an account where your location can be made public, such as Facebook.

Keeping these tips in mind when searching for your next meal while traveling will surely lead you to a high quality dining destination off of the beaten path. Be sure to consider a Detroit Party Bus Company if you’re anywhere in the metro area searching for a way to get from one destination to the other. It’s so much more fun exploring when you have a full stomach!

WiFi Wherever You Travel With Telecom Square Global Hotspot

WiFi Wherever You Travel With Telecom Square Global Hotspot

Hi guys! I am back from Paris in one piece and with many great memories!;) I was really worried before the trip because it was my first international solo trip. I know zero French and my English is not the best either. There is nobody I know in Paris and I didn’t have any company for the trip.

It turned out to be one of my favorite vacations because I got so much help from my convenient internet access. On my phone I have several apps that are definitely my heroes when it came to the success of this trip. I used iTranslate to talk to people who knew limited English. I used Google Maps to guide me when I was walking around the city to help me find shops and go sightseeing. I even used Google Maps to correct a not-so-honest taxi driver in Paris. I used Yelp to find the best restaurants to try yummy French food. I used the Weather Channel App to decide what to wear and if I needed to bring the umbrella. I used Orbits to book and organize all my trips and tours. Of course, I posted millions of Instagram stories too.

Before I went to Paris, I stopped by my local AT&T store to ask about their international travel data plans. After they heard how many apps I needed to use, and especially looking at the huge GPS usage on my phone, they suggested I look into other options because their plan is good for the travelers who use very limited data daily. They considered me a heavy data user. Go figure. 😉 If I chose one of their plans, I would likely have to pay A LOT of overage fees.

Therefore, I turned to a personal hotspot rental service for help. With the unlimited data I had with my two global hotspots from Telecom Square, I was literally online 24/7. The retail fee starts from $6.99 per day and it is cheaper than using a roaming plan from a US carrier.

Below is what the devices look like. I received this bag two days before my trip. I put my iPhone 7 plus next to it so you can get an idea of the size.

This photo below shows what the two hotspot routers look like. The white one is the 4G router, the operating time is 6 hours and charge time is 4 hours. I can even connect 10 devices to this one router. The other one is the 3G router, the operating time is 8 hours and charge time is 4 hours as well. This one can connect up to 5 devices.

Here is what I like about Telecom Square Global Hotspot:

1. Unlimited data: I could do everything online just like I was at home. I have met a lot of new friends who use their phones cellular international plan. They snapped a lot of photos, but would have to wait till they got back to the hotel to post because they worried it would use too much data. They were so envious of me doing live Instagram stories or going on Facebook Live.

2. World wide coverage: Telecom Square’s Global Hotspot service delivers a wireless data connection in many countries around the world. It is available in 96 countries including the USA.

3. Customer service is available 24 hours a day: I didn’t need this service but it always makes me feel safe if something happens to know that I can get help right away.

4. Easy to order and return: After you sign up for a hot-spot rental, Telecom Square overnights you the device just before your departure date. Then, after you use it on your trip and return home, you send it back to the company in an prepaid envelope.

Below are the things I wish Telecom Square Global Hotspot could offer:

1. Downsizing: I have no knowledge about technology so I may be making a very unreasonable request, but I would love it if this router could lose a lot of weight. Since I was out about for whole day I had to carry both of the routers. For safety, I also carried the charger just in case both of them died. Consequently my bag was quite heavy since it also contained my camera, extra batteries for the camera, umbrella, etc… Don’t forget I was walking for hours with all of these in my bag and I felt it. If it was as small as a watch, a ring or a bracelet, that will be perfect. If they could look like fashion accessories then it would be even better. 😉 Sorry, I am quite greedy.

2. Longer battery life: I am being ridiculous again, but it would be so easy to use if the battery could last for more than 12 hours.

The bottom line is Telecom Square’s Global Hotspot is a dependable and convenient way to access the Internet while traveling. I have to say, without the access of internet my trip in Paris would have been so much harder. I definitely will use them again for my next international trip.
