Stay Connected while You Fly.

The important thing about mobile is, everybody has a computer in their pocket. The implications of so many people connected to the Internet all the time from the standpoint of education is incredible.

At this moment I am sitting on a plane departed from Amsterdam approximately 7 hours ago heading to Jakarta-Soekarno Hatta.

It’s amazing how the technology develop nowadays. I wouldn’t imagine I could talk (well, chat) with my husband and family while flying.

This is my first time using the service btw, and apparently (up to now) the connection works. My baby is now sleeping in the bassinet, that’s why I can write a bit here.

I actually wanted to finish the writing challenge (which was already few days too late from my actual target), but first let me post this one oke haha.

Back to the internet connection via wifi on the plane, if you have a long haul flight like what I have at this moment, I suggest you to get one (well – that is if you think watching tv on demand is not interesting, or in my case the TV got blocked by the bassinetπŸ˜…).

In Garuda flight, there are three options to get connected: US$ 5 for 20MB or chat text only connection, US$ 11.95 for 1 hour unlimited connection, or US$ 24,95 for full flight/24 hours unlimited connection. I picked the last one since the difference between all of them were not significant I think.

It’s a bit of a challenge for me to travel with an infant by myself. In addition, he is now already eating (other than breastmilk) and its his first long haul and being far away from his papa and broer-zus for quite some time. We’ve been together to Paris also but at that moment I had my friend along with me so things were a bit easier than now. Well, I hope everything will be ok until we get back to Home again 😊

Btw, if you are interesting to know how do we get the internet connection on the airplane, I found a nice post about this. You can read the post by clicking this (which will redirect you to the post πŸ˜‰)
