UBC Day 14: HiTech Vacation

I just arrived in NYC with my girlfriends. It’s been a while since the four of us have hit this town and we were musing how different this is from our last trip. Technology has come a long way in the last four years. And back then we didn’t have smart phones or iPads.

Technology has obviously changed how we communicate, but have you ever thought about how it affects how your travel? It allows us to be more agile in our planning as we can look up information on the fly. Thinking about grabbing dinner that a restaurant you just walked by? You can do a quick search to see the reviews. Lost? No need to ask for directions, there’s an app for that.

Technology unfortunately also allows us to take the office with us wherever we go. We check emails, return texts and take phone calls because, we tell ourselves, it’s better than returning to the office to a couple hundred emails. But that’s irrelevant…. I’m in PR, we’re always on the clock.
