relationships are like Wi-Fi, strong while actually connected
These days most people expect to be constantly connected to the whole world via their smartphone or tablet. There are some who actually have withdrawals if they are out of touch with their real friends and social media contacts for any length of time, and there are those who always have their device clamped to their ear or in front of their eyes 24/7.
This is sometimes a little difficult when on vacation, particularly in some of the more out-of-the-way locations. In the brochure, your hotel may say it has Wi-Fi, and that may be true ~ but exactly where in the hotel, and how good is the connection?
For example, the hotel I’m in now in Turkey has decent Wi-Fi, if you’re anywhere near the pool or the reception office. However, there is no connection in my room, and from my room to reception is a climb of 144 steps ~
smegging exhausting if you’re doing that climb 8 or 12 times a day.
So, I am not connected to the internet as often as usual, and I am not in contact with my friends as much as maybe I’d like.
On the other hand while I am enjoying myself on vacation do my ‘friends’ want to waste their time chatting with me, and do I want to waste good holiday time chatting with someone who has better things to do? As it happens I don’t.
In all honesty we would all be a lot better off if we left our mobile devices switched off all the time we are on our holidays.
