Has technology taken the fun out of vacation wrap up or has it made it better? As I sit here on the plane home from vacation I remember the days when upon starting my vacation, I would buy postcards, write and mail them one of the first few days to make sure they reached my friends and family before I returned home. I would also love taking the film to the 1 – hour photo when I got back, and sitting in the mall anxiously awaiting all the photos I took to see how they turned out and showing them to my friends.
Now, everyone knows as soon as I land in resort thanks to my twitter tweets and Facebook updates and can see the vacation as it happens because of my daily photo upload. Am I having a good time? Do I wish you were here? Just check my Facebook status and you will know. And with my digital camera I see all the photos I have taken instantly. Missed a shot… then take another. No surprises here either.
So what do you think? Has technology added to the fun of a vacation or taken away from it?
