sailing and diving around the world
One of the first things I do when I hit shore of a new port is find a 'home base,' so to speak. I walk through and check out the various restaurants and cafes to find one that has the kind of atmosphere that I like and that has a decent wifi signal. The place I choose, almost invariably, is one where the owners and staff are friendly and accommodating, and are set up to receive yachties who bring their laptops with them. What that means is there are receptacles around so we can plug our devices into. I always end up selecting a place that is more of a cafe than a restaurant. Or, it is a restaurant, I choose a place that isn't too busy, so I'm not taking up tables that would be used by customers who arrive to dine. If it is a full-blown, busy restaurant, and you absolutely love the place, then obviously you would simply go in to do your wifi stuff between service rushes, meaning, you don't want to be one person occupying a table during the height of the breakfast, lunch, or dinner rushes. Also, when i'm using the place's wifi, I buy beverages, and things to eat. If you can afford it, buy breakfast, lunch or dinner, once in a while.
Obviously, it's nice to stay in contact with people, but it's particularly nice to have a decent wifi signal when you've got a blog going. To maintain a blog, in my experience, it's important to update regularly. It's easy to fall behind and have the blog posts pile up.
