9 Ways The Internet Has Changed The Way We Travel

Travelling in the 21st Century is a lot smarter, safer and more informed than every before. With smartphones and internet access pretty much everywhere, some things just aren’t the same as they used to be.

1. It so easy to keep in touch with friends and family back home through Skype, Facebook or a blog.

2. But then everyone is on the free wifi and no one is talking to the people around them
