I hope that reconnecting with each other will stay strong no matter what distractions are nearby. We need each other to help through difficult times.
Paper Maps, No Apps: An Unplugged Travel Adventure
On the road, in new and unfamiliar places, you often must rely on strangers and your ability to meet, greet, ask, learn, live, and share. I see these social skills in jeopardy with our technology addiction and reliance. I can so easily see a time when real world social interactions begin to feel like work, awkward and daunting. If that future becomes reality, we will have lost something very special about being human, because there is nothing as fulfilling as real connection.
