If you pay a woman for sex, that’s illegal — it’s prostitution. If you film it it’s legal — it’s porn. If you put a soft lens on the camera — it’s art. What do you call a website that assists rich men in plying attractive young gold diggers with ‘free’ trips around the world? Digital pimpery? Perhaps. Brandon Wade calls it MissTravel.com.
Travel has gone high-tech. This is good and bad, depending on perspective. But we’re going to say it’s mostly good. An argument can definitely be made that technology innovations have no place in travel, but that entirely depends on the reason for traveling in the first place. Sure, if you are looking to escape your regular life for much needed rest and relaxation then, yes, technology may not be your best travel companion.
But if you’re a business traveler, or a vacationer that simply cannot leave communications behind, then the right tech gadgets can be a boon to the experience. Most people would probably fall into this category – it’s hard to imagine leaving behind the iPhone for an entire week or other devices like tablets, laptops and iPods for that matter.
