Travel Photo of the Day (March 5)

Do you think this man is always so patient? One of my pet peeves is people who are constantly checking their cell phones. Photo taken in London.

    I just read an article where a software company will give each of their employees money for a beautiful vacation as long as they leave with the company their cell phones, lap top, and all other electronics. If they go on any electronics while on vacation they have to pay back the money. Something to that. I see people checking their cell phones all day long. It is amazing. You are supposed to be out and enjoying the world!!

      Dude I’m totally in. I only travel with my camera. Is that allowed? If not, I’ll still let them pay for me and leave it behind. No problemo! People need to learn to disconnect more and actually live. That’s my opinion at least.

    They are probably looking for directions to the nearest tattoo parlor! I see a bare spot on their feet.

    I used to have texting blocked on my phone because I rarely used it and I would get texts from people I did know. However, in January, I got a new phone and reinstated texting. I still don’t use it much. I mostly text hubby when he is traveling. With him being on planes, at work, and in the sometimes huge difference in time zones when it’s hard to keep track of when it is day or night for him, I text and he can call when he is able.

      Currently I’m living without a cell phone. When I moved to London I got rid of my American phone since I didn’t get any service. I work from home now so I didn’t get one right away. I haven’t had one for over a year. I love it and it helps us save money for travel. I can see why the texting would be needed in your case. I used to text occasionally, but some people are addicted. I rather read a book then a ton of texts. I wish your hubby safe travels.

  7. mine too-i wonder if their necks will be permanently bent when they’re older since that seems to be the new posture-head bent, thumbs moving.
