So, recently, I’ve done a lot of traveling. A LOT of traveling. One of the things I realized is that it’s seriously not convenient to take my giant laptop with me everywhere.  I’ll bring it along, sure, for work and blogging. But I can’t just get it out and set up somewhere to see where I might want to go in the town I’m in, or when we’re looking for a hotel. You see, I have a 19 inch laptop.  It seemed like a good idea at the time I ordered it, but it’s not so portable.  We often travel with no reservations. We may have a general plan, but nothing is usually set in stone.

You can use a tablet, or your phone, to connect and look things up, but that gets cumbersome, too. How many times have you tried to click a link while mobile only to wind up somewhere else entirely? For me, that happens ALL.THE.TIME.

I have a secret to share.  Come in close, and hold on to your hat.  I just got my first ever smart phone earlier this year.  Whoa, right?  What took me so long, you ask?  I’m not really sure.  It was partly the cost, and partly the belief that I thought I didn’t need one.

So, I broke down and bought one of these super amazing tiny computers that you can keep in your pocket, and occasionally use to make phone calls, earlier this year.  Ever since then, my life has totally changed.  Wanna go out for a meal?  I can find somewhere to go, read reviews, and possibly even look at the menu.  It’s magic!
