The Barefoot Nomad’s Best Travel Things of 2013

In the past year, we've logged well over 17,632 miles as the crow flies, visited five continents, and tasted some of the best ice cream (gelato and dondurma included) around.

5 Ways to Share Your Mobile Data Connection

Over the years, we've become reliant on a decent Internet connection when we travel. When we first hit the road over ten years ago, personal Internet was a rare luxury. It was always welcome but getting it outside of Internet cafes and hotel lobbies wasn't often possible. These days, it's available almost everywhere and because of our jobs, it's also mandatory. Now that we travel with a Tablet, 2 iPhones and a couple laptops, we've found the need to share that Internet connection to be just as important. That being said, creating our own Mobile Hotspot is one of the first things we do when we get to a new location and a decent WiFi signal can't be found. In case you're like us, here's a list of products and ideas to help share your mobile data connection while you're on the road.
