As promise, through out my “Impulsive Travelling 2012: Spain & Germany”, I have been  running a session of PathTest whenever I have WIFI connection.   Please remember to follow this blog if you are interested to see the geek side of my latest trip =)

This is my last day of travel in Germany.  Currently staying in a hotel in Munich that’s very close to the train station.

The internet in this hotel connection feels smooth.  I am continuously using my laptop, iPad and iPhone and not notice any issue.  Here is the PathTest result.
