Every city has a character, but the capital cities have probably less of them, at least to me. Naturally, I contemplated a lot about whether to visit Warsaw or not. A part of me wanted to, at least to go out and get some content, while the other part of me insisted I rather add the days to smaller towns in Poland. I planned to give Warsaw a day but ended up staying for almost 4 days. Yes, I loved Warsaw, the capital! Whether you have just a day or more, or if you are still in doubt, I would recommend you to read further to check this Warsaw travel guide for all the awesome things to do in Warsaw.

And once you get to the heart of the town, the magnificent island, postcard-perfect old town, the seemingly ever-energetic students, and all the colours will enchant you. So in a day or two, Wroclaw has you. By the time you head home, it’ll be one of the cities of Poland that you would vow to come back.

I decided to try their Refundable Lifetime Europe SIM Card that I used for over 2+ months traveling in Europe. I would like to share my experience, things to know and a few tips in this TSIM card review. Let me first brief you a bit about the various things to consider and understand if you are looking to buy an international sim card. But, do you even need a sim card while traveling abroad?
