I only had a few things to get done today with Worldcon trip prep. I'd love to start packing, but it's too soon. Because I won't be able to rely on my smartphone (no way I'm going to set myself up for $$$$ in roaming charges), I've been printing out maps and directions to things we plan to do in Hamburg and Helsinki, and details about getting in between places like the train from Hamburg to Lubeck and the bus to Travemunde to catch the ferry. It's rather astonishing to realize how many trains there are between the cities, and how there are three different bus route with useful frequencies from Lubeck over to the ferry terminal. I'm just too used to working with train and bus schedules that are inconvenient and sparse, I guess. I expect that we'll show up earlier than we really need to do, if only to reduce stress should we miss a train or a bus along the way and have to wait for the next one.

Now I have to concentrate on working on the Day Jobbe for the next three days before we leave for San Francisco on Wednesday afternoon.

I don't know who your cell carrier is, but I was pleasantly surprised by how affordable it was to add a month's worth of international coverage on AT&T while we were in Istanbul. I never called anyone, but being able to pull up maps and hit social media for things like Swarm check-ins was awesome.

Yeah, if it's not your personal phone, and you're unlikely to get calls from work, then it's not worth the expense.

No, too soon is planning your route to the next Utah Westercon. That was how I was wasting time last night. *grin*
