I IS FOR INTERNET
Seriously, what would we do without WiFi everywhere?
How would we check-in for our flights? Check the weather of our destination? Get phone numbers for taxis? Check out local events? Inform your parents you’re alive?
Internet is vastly becoming a necessity for travel and sometimes I find therein lies the problem. It’s a useful tool but it’s so all-consuming that we can never just leave our work at work, or home situations at home. And it feels like we can’t “get away from it all” anymore because most people are convinced we need a gamut of devices that all connect to the internet to keep our lives organized.
It’s a wonder how people managed at all before the internet.
I’d like to think though, that people took more time to connect with the people in their world and treasured their experiences instead of thinking “How can I turn this situation into an awesome Facebook/Twittter/etc update?”
