“I booked a remote work trip to the island of Roatan off the coast of Honduras for two weeks. I thought I was being so clever–I found cheap tickets and made sure the Airbnb I booked had solid WiFi. That “solid” WiFi went out on day 3, right before a work call (of course). Then, a tropical storm rolled in and the internet went out across the entire island. After several hours spent freaking out, dropping off the map at work, and missing an important call, I found a fancy hotel right on the beach that still had WiFi. Since I wasn’t a guest, I had to work from the outdoor patio bar barely shielded by the plastic tarping they put up to keep the rain out.
Cheap tickets explained.”
