Free WIFI in cities and ports of your journey

To briefly check your mails or sending some pictures or greetings to those who have stayed at home can be costly. Usually internet packages for foreign countries are very expensive and limited as well.  


At sea, its even more difficult to find a reasonable internet connection. Cruise companies adapt to the need of their guests to be "online" but the connections are still rare or extremly expensive. For this reason, I prefer to use free WIFI connections in the cities and ports of my journey. 



Below, you find a list of WIFI-hotspots, which I've found by myself or via research.
