Do you recall those days when we used to pack big luggage bags before travelling? There were incalculable planning that used to take place in the house surrounding the indispensable things to carry or rather ‘the essentials’ that we cannot forget. What were these unforgettable objects that were primary to take with? Foremost were the comestibles, medicines, clothes, baby ancillaries, vacation spot guide book, maps and of course, not to forget, a plethora of hard cash.
Except a few, everyone used to work the tail off to prearrange Airfare, hotel accommodations, car rentals, mugging up the local map prior to a vacation. Flight reservation, booking hotel, car rentals are known to be the holy trinity of tour preparation. There were people who were avant-garde in the mastery of packing. There dexterity contrived many funny drama and story compositions.
Packing daily essentials in the bag was the kernel part of travelling. Today, a smart phone and the applications loaded in it have become the nub of travelling. Brainiac inventions of this era have made the traditional hazardous trip preparation redundant. It’s easy today! Starting from planning a trip to the day you return to your nest – everything has become Spanking! Our intrinsic capabilities of arraying are waning away.
The gig of smart phone technology has interoperated industries concerning tourism, hospitality, shopping, banking – the number is countless. The entire demusing fun centering trip preparation has desiccated. Even the trip venue selection is the outcome of a technology centric research. So, what we do now prior to an upcoming tour?
- We do online research to decide where to go. Days are gone when we used to ask our friends and colleagues; we learn it from the reviewers online.
- We decide the venue after knowing the cost and other availability issues like date and leaves.
- We reserve air-tickets
- We check the possible current weather of the place
- We do a little shopping at our own place & keep the rest to buy from the holiday place; who wants to carry luggage?
