Staying Straight While Traveling

Disclosure: I am a Straight Talk Tester. This is a sponsored post. All thoughts and opinions are purely my own. Nothing brings me more pleasure than traveling. I like to travel and I especially like doing it with the kid. What can I say? She makes it easy on me.

We both love “hanging out” with one another especially when we are on a road trip. This past week, I had the pleasure of driving up to Atlanta for the Type A Parent Conference. It was fantastic!

You know what wasn’t fantastic? Me calling the hotel to let them know that I’d be arriving late on my check in day and them telling me that my reservation was for the NEXT day! So, what should’ve been a relaxing 6-7 hour trip with my girl turned into a tad bit of a frenzy.

Though I was glad to have been in a car with Bluetooth cell phone action, I was even GLADDER that I had my Straight Talk phone. Though I initially thought “okay, it’ll be great to have this phone on this trip to see how it works while I’m traveling” I didn’t think it would make such a big difference.

Let’s face it, calls get dropped especially when driving through remote areas, right? Setting that aside, though, I was able to reach my BFF after several attempts on my other phone through the mamiPhone on Straight Talk wireless. It made all the difference in the world.

Traveling with Straight Talk

Why? Because my girl recently moved to Atlanta and while she was supposed to be traveling that week, it just so happened that she was home that night and I found myself a warm bed to crash on when I made it in to Atlanta at around 11:30 p.m. And it meant that the last couple of hours on the trip were relaxing as I jammed to some old school music while the Frog Princess slept.

I loved having coverage while I traveled. And for $45 on the unlimited plan,* it’s something you can’t beat.
