    I think you’ve already answered your own question – you are reluctant to bring your phone.

    If folks at home need to contact u, there’s email at every city.

    Get a ?10 Euro Union calling card in Europe to call home for 10 cents/min. Good to make calls from any EU country – and has toll free numbe and no connection fee. Find them in cigar shops, internet cafes, magazine shops, etc.

    One person lost her cell on the tour was was not a happy camper.

    Travel light !!
