Good to hear from you! I hope the trip is going well! If you're blogging it somewhere, you need to put it in your signature here so we can check up on you now to then.I'm bicycling through Latin America right now and I have a US Tmobile plan that has had phenomenal coverage here. It uses the same spectrum as AT&T and Sprint so I'm getting the US one now and if I tour Europe afterwards I'll need to get at the very least the CPU board with the EU chip. I'm going slow though, I've been out 7 months and just today left Mexico and passed into Guatemala so maybe an upgrade will be out by the time I finish Latin America and I'll just get the EU upgrade.
Cellular and electricity/power plugs aren't universal globally unfortunately.
Or... By then ED should have refurbs and repairs on Pyras going. If you start & end your trip in Germany, you may simply be able to swap/trade your US mobile board for an EU mobile board and back. Though I'm not going to discourage you from purchasing a 2nd Pyra either.I guess that would save a lot of money. I've repaired my nephew's DS Lite so I'm guessing I can do that.
Great to hear you're still on the road!
Completely off topic... We took a family trip to Mexico back in 1987 (Yes, I'm old, but I wasn't then). Since I'd had a year of High School Spanish, I was the family translator. My grandfather, being rather set in his ways had a standard breakfast order. He wanted two eggs over easy served between two pancakes and a glass of tomato juice.
"Dos juevos frito y frito despues de dos pancacos con una huego del tomato."
I had a waitress slap me then storm off once when I got to the pancakes.
