March break is here and for many families, that means a trip across the border for a quick vacation or journey to visit family. In fact, one in four Canadians plan to escape winter by taking a trip down south. I love popping down to the United States for a few days of shopping, entertainment or sight-seeing, but I also want to share those moments with family and friends back home. Unfortunately, as soon as we cross the border, high charges for data, calls and texts have me avoiding using my phone at all if possible!
That’s why the Travel Passes from TELUS are so exciting to me. I have an amazing TELUS plan that offers me unlimited Canada-wide calling and texting as well as 4GB of data, more than I’ve ever needed in a month. But crossing into the United States means that the prices for all those phone uses goes up significantly. Now, luckily for me, a TELUS Travel Pass lets me make calls, text and use my data for as little as $25 per trip so that I can still use my phone even when I’m in another country.

We did have a trip planned to go out to BC with the camper this spring, not sure if we will be going or not, been planning all year, but income tax was NOT good to us this year, so will have to wait and see.
Probably not out of the Country but definitely out of the province. Hopefully BC this summer!!
I’ll be going to Atlanta this summer for a conference. The Samsung Galaxy GS3 Mini would come in very handy!
Tucson, Arizona to visit friends in the fall.
I will be going to Sedona, Arizona in May.
