During a recent trip to South America my friends and I were joking about walking around sightseeing while taking distracted glances upwards from our phones. Some of us were addicted to our phones – jumping online when any free Wifi opportunity became available.
I polled a family member currently on vacation in Croatia – who enjoys using his phone while traveling. I had a good laugh when we read this.
“Travel is all about staying in touch using your phone. You actually just interrupted me while I was dictating a message to a client. All I do is walk around and do email while seeing the sights.”
It was actually refreshing on this trip to not see people walking around without phones.
Have you been spotted using your phone while trying to take in sights around the world – or seen others doing the same? Comments?
