Free and Abundant WiFi: Oh How We Miss You!
The land of Kiwis does not place a high priority on free wifi. And wifi is essential when you have 4 kids that are ONLINE schooling while traveling.
Every day we must seek out a wifi solution.
In New Zealand, we’ve been staying at Top 10 Holiday Parks but wifi is not included. It is offered...at $60 per month or 5 TB, whichever comes first, and that’s for 1 device at a time. If you can’t log off of that particular device (which about 90% of the time you cannot), then you’re stuck with 6 people lobbying for time to get their work done on 1 device. That’s a lot of fun. Insert sarcasm.
We NEVER, EVER eat at McDonald’s but we did yesterday because it offered free wifi. So after our $50 McD’s bill for 6 sandwiches and 2 fries we sat down to do our work. This was only to find that the FREE McDonalds’ wifi did not work. Sigh.
As I write this post, we just spent $70 for ‘free’ wifi at a local coffee house.
So the journey continues as we seek wifi in the the land of Kiwis.
