I recently went to New York and now I wish I had read this Guardian story before I left.
The point of the story: How to have adventure in a city you don’t know equipped only with a BlackBerry 7100t and Nokia’s 6682. The Guardian writer decided to spend 48 hours in New York using bloggers as his tour guide.
After all, who knows the underground in’s-and-out’s of New York better than the city’s bloggers. There is a wealth of information on the Web and with an Internet enabled device no bigger than a pack of cigarettes, what’s to stop you from knowing where the place to be is.
It just goes to show all the different ways our little gadgets can change the way we work, communicate and even travel. Next time I go to a new city, screw the Lonely Planet’s Guidebook, I’m going to rely on a WiFi travel guide.
