Apps That Don’t Work Abroad

I was disappointed to find that Pandora does not work in Central America nor outside the U.S. in general (as far as I'm aware).

Then I also found out that Netflix is available in Central America, but does not necessarily offer the same content that is does in the States. However, it did offer content relevant to where we were traveling. Which is kind of nice since we can watch some Spanish shows and movies while in Central America that aren't available in the states. This map shows in which countries Netflix is available. Basically, in almost all of North and South America and almost none of Europe, Asia, and Africa.

Lastly, yesterday Auston just found out Skype does not work in Belize. I guess Belize blocks all internet phone calls like Skype and Google Voice.

Just some heads up for when traveling abroad. Don't get too attached to your apps like we did!

    Thanks for the tips-Scott and I will be stopping there in Sept on our cruise …. oh never mind, we’re Luddites! On a recent drive to S Padre took awhile for us to figure out that people in other cars were staring b/c we were using a map-paper map!

    With that said, I jump on the computer at home (to reiterate-at home – that was for big brother) every day just to check this page for updates. (and Tasia’s blog of course, and Megan’s Facebook page b/c she’s just too funny, and your Mom’s Facebook page b/c I miss her). Loving all of it!

    Don’t forget to leave a link to each place you volunteer – your family/friends who are following you could leave a trail of donations behind you. It doesn’t take much right-every little bit counts!

    Stay safe and healthy you two. I love you both.
