controlling raspberry pi without access to the internet

Posted 21 March 2016 - 09:15 AM

Hi, I have a question about controlling the raspberry pi 3 model b

I bought the pi 3 a few days ago. I control my pi with putty via a ssh protocol over the WiFi.
but in a few days I am going to visit Italy with my school, and I would like to take my pi with me.

however, i am not sure if there will be WiFi over there. So my question is: is it possible to control the pi
by connecting it to my phone's WiFi hotspot? or controlling it over Bluetooth? How could I possibly to this?
I do not want to take a mouse and keyboard with me. I want to control the pi with my phone. I have the OnePlus One by the way.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Why would you want to take your trinket toy on a school trip?

Control to do what?

Pi does have Bluetooth support, if you have the drivers and adapter.
