It's different this time
The last time Eric and I did a big trip we had our trusty guidebooks and did sporadic stops at Internet cafes to keep family and friends connected. we would send lengthy emails and eagerly await email responses. We sent our rolls of film home to keep safe and found out how our pictures turned out weeks after our travels were over. That was in 2000! Our previous trip to that we used American Express travellers service to collect our mail and our trusty guide book was well worn with notes in the margins and communication home was through pay phones will collect call. That was in 1995! So, as I learn how to blog and attempt twitter and come to realization that maybe we don't buy that trusty guidebook after all- this trip is going to be soooo different! I'm feeling anxious just thinking about how I'm going to manage all the hundreds and thousands of photos. Eric and I are old school travellers and so I'm realizing that the foray into the digital travel will also be a bit of an adventure for us. And of course this kind of travel will be what Sean and Liam will only know.
