Travel Saver rates do not apply

Hello. I’m somewhere over Iran. And I’ve just got this message on my cellphone:

Network On Air (Aerospace) is a satellite. Travel Saver rates do not apply. We encourage you to make calls at R23/min for int’l calls rather than receive calls at R150/min, R2.75/SMS & R128.00/MB for data. For T&Cs and rates visit www.vodacom.co.za/roam

I’ve already checked that my mobile data is switched off, but if you could all avoid calling me for the foreseeable future, that would be just great. Thanks.

Out in the sticks

Thankfully, we have enough food and water, but there are always other essentials that aren’t so readily available:

Obviously, there’s some Internet connection or other though, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this.

Tomorrow, tomorrow…

… I’m blogging tomorrow, it’s only a day away.

Have I been in touch? I don’t know, because I’m writing yet another post way in advance.

I’ve checked the Heading North itinerary and we’re supposedly heading back through the Channel Tunnel to Blighty this evening, all of which probably means better connectivity that in France, but potentially not much time to use it in.

Apparently, Eurostar should be getting wifi on board, although on the website, I can only find stuff about connectivity at their stations.

Anyway – the whole tomorrow thing? Normal service , stable ADSL and some proper real-time blogging.

I hope.
