When looking for wifi during our travels, Kim and I used to seek out McDonald’s. They were usually a reliable place to go if we wanted to get online. In recent years I’ve found McDonald’s wifi to not be as consistent with many locations not even offering free wifi.
Another place to stop in for free wifi is Starbucks, although I can’t recall ever going there to get online. (I also don’t drink coffee so why would I!)
I’ve written many times in the past about how I love to check out McDonald’s around the world but rarely visit McD’s at home.
I have a few reasons for visiting McD’s when traveling. The main reason is that I love to see what local menu-items might be available in each country. The other reason is that a visit to McD’s for Lucas is like a treat. We don’t really go at home but he loves getting a toy. Also they usually have free Wifi which comes in handy when abroad. (Surprisingly, the McD’s locations we visited around Japan did not have Wifi.)
Some of you may know that I love to visit McDonald’s when traveling to new places. I pretty much never dine at McD’s at home though.
The purpose of stopping in is to see if there are any local menu items worthy of a try. McDonald’s has also become something of a treat for Lucas. He knows that it isn’t healthy and we don’t go at home but while traveling he gets to go for a toy and some chicken nuggets.
