February is Technology and Travel Month

February is technology and travel month here at The Traveling Advisor. That means that we will be taking a closer look at the following:

  • Travel websites, networks, and blogs
  • Social Media and Travel
  • Online learning with a global or multi-cultural focus
  • Apps and Tech Travel Tips
  • Travel photography and gear

For most of us, technology has changed the way we live and even think (when was the last time you felt anxiety about remembering something if you knew your smartphone could pull up the answer in an instant?). It is also changing the way we learn about ourselves, others, and the world. Naturally, these changes present some new and interesting questions. Which is more beneficial (or when are the following beneficial), being ‘plugged in’ or ‘unplugged’ while traveling? How has technology changed the way we travel or even why we travel? Has social media and online communities enhanced or deepened our knowledge of ourselves and others or has it merely created the illusion of deeper connections?

Join me this month! If you have something to say on the matter, I’d love to hear from you. Don’t be shy, contact me!
