    How very laudable, but try coordinating a dozen skiers and snowboarders of differing abilities across one of the largest ski areas in Europe without everyone using WhatsApp.

    It doesn't work.

    I love 3. I travel a lot through Europe and the US. I hope their international deal doesn't change but I have a feeling it will.

    Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

    I went abroad for a week ladt year, before that a fortnight in 2014, before that ... 1997....

    Why should I have my country invaded to allow you cheaper calls when you insist on taking your phone abroad and using it outside of resort based Wi-Fi ...
