I was so pleased to hear on the news this morning that roaming charges are to undergo changes for those travelling around Europe. It has always seemed ridiculous to me that making a call or sending a text costs so much more if you are on holiday abroad, when the exact same process takes place as if you were at home.
I have illustrated this here:
This shows me, in my pretty pink dress, sending a message to Mr Whinge in another country. The signal goes up to a satellite, then down to earth again. Whether I am standing two centimetres away from him or two thousand kilometres away, the process is the same. So why should I pay extortionate charges when abroad?
I hope that you all realise how lucky you are today….you have never had a genuine Ava Whinge illustration before.
