Your iMessages work when on Wi-Fi (if turned on again), as it is designed to work on both Wi-Fi and using cellular data. It seems like your phone either has international roaming turned off ( Settings > Cellular data options > Data Roaming > ON), or the option for international use which should have been turned on for your account when you both the add-on was not triggered. If you check your self-serve, you should be able to conform you have the international options 'on'.

Grey iMessage bubbles are incoming messages. Yours when Blue is iMessage; green is SMS.

You should have a data roaming package to prevent data overages if using data.

Hope this helps!
