Peggy Ryker Jun 07, 2015 at 06:28 PM

Believe I can do this at the airport because I have an unlocked phone.

Peggy Ryker Jun 07, 2015 at 06:28 PM

Am buying a sim card for my phone and my husbands too. We can call one a other and use a data plan. Very tied to asking the magic box questions and obtaing directions and finding info about where I am.

Peggy Ryker Jun 07, 2015 at 07:18 AM

Since these countries are in the EU, can I buy a sim card with data and phone usage while I am on this journey.
Kata Ihasz Jun 07, 2015 at 07:36 AM

Dear Peggy, in case you plan to make many phone calls during the trip, you may consider to buy one, however there is WIFI at the hotel in BUdapest, and many of the restaurants, cafés offer complimentary WIFI as well.

Peggy Ryker Jun 06, 2015 at 09:26 AM

My husband and I will be making this trip Sept. 2-17. Would love to talk to others on this trip and hear any insight from folks who have been in the area before.
