READERS CHOICE

For travelers who want to stay in touch abroad, I recommend renting a cell phone from New York-based TRAVEL CELL [877-235-5746, www.travelcell.com]. It was nice to know that family could reach us recently in Spain. That, and my father-in-law used it to check college football scores.
