6 months ago I was pretty low-tech. But on our last family vacation I embraced technology.
We landed in Kahului, HI at 10:30pm and picked up our rental car (installing the kid’s car seats in the dark). As we left the parking lot we fired up the TOMTOM gps system, I checked email on my BLACKBERRY, we put the new Tinkerbell DVD into the kid’s personal DVD player and made our way to the house we were staying at.
Once at the house, my Laptop helped us decide which beaches were family friendly and we drove there listening to the kid’s favorite songs on the IPOD.
Aside from the fact that this new travel gear of ours comes with a lot of different cords, my laptop is just one more step at Airport Security and the kids ears are just a little too small for the IPOD earbuds- this equipment keeps everyone happy while we are away from home.
One of my favorite sayings has always been, “Life is a journey, not a destination”. And although I want the kids to soak in all the new things on our ‘journeys’, I enjoy the journey much more when everyone is happy. Thank you DISNEY, SONY, BLAKCBERRY, DELL, TOMTOM & MAC for a fabulous family vacation!
