Social Media for the sojourner, because if you didn't post it, did you even travel there?
After my first day or two in Costa Rica back in November of 2002, I knew that there was indeed something special about this country. I didn't know any Spanish at all. . ah, maybe, "Hola" or "Como Estas?". . but that is it. I just sold my business in the USA, sold my home and wanted to spend a couple of weeks relaxing, "away from it all"! And I did just that!
I’ve never been an avid user of Instagram. At most, I found it a platform I’d used to to hurriedly type “how to fix…” when I knew I made a true mess of things.
I love to travel. As a matter of fact, I did my share of visiting different places and embracing different cultures. But it was not before I discovered TJ’s vlog I found out that I was doing it the wrong way. My trips were usually short and were lacking all the colorful exotica and genuine enjoyment that is streaming from her videos.
TikTok has taken the internet by storm in the past couple years with its addictive layout, usability, and user-based content. It started out as Musical.ly, a place where users could upload videos of them lip-syncing or 'dancing' to songs.

And still, amid this ruckus of sensuality I notice the draw. The technological tether. The craving, the bent, the social media monkey clawing at my back. The monkey chatters, “post this, post that, like, like, like!”
This photo may look wild and remote. But the truth is that we shared a path with hundreds, maybe even thousands of people with selfie sticks, hiking up the steep path to the iconic Storr. The road below was lined with the cars of these eager visitors, causing traffic jams.
Feature accounts are great resources to make your Instagram posts be seen by more people who are not following you. Instagram users who are following these feature pages will see their repost of your pictures with credit, and those who are interested to see more from you will click on your profile and will potentially follow you. It is an alternative way to make your posts be seen WITHOUT being on someone's explore page.
I have lived in Tampa for 23 years. I used to have family living on the northern coastline in the Jacksonville area up till I was about the age of eigh. Now that I am living here, I decided to write a blog about this small Floridian town and what it means for someone like me with a background issue of keeping employment and finding employment.
Everyone’s used Google Maps at least once. It’s the GPS of choice for millennials, the finder of public toilets and ATMs, the easy access travel guide tucked into your pocket. So long as you have an internet connection, you can look up anywhere in the world with a few taps of your index finger.
Want to go on an adventure? You definitely do. Did you know there are experienced adventurers exploring the most beautiful parts of the world, so that we can live vicariously through them? They are currently devoting their lives to traveling and taking photos. Lucky us! While us regular folk are toiling away at work or at home taking care of our kids–all the while adding vacation destinations to our ever-growing bucket lists–these travel extraordinaires benevolently provide us with the next best thing.
When the 21st Century is over and becomes another chapter in the history books, it will be known as the first truly interconnected, interdependent, and entangled era of human history. Compared to past eras, borders are more open, long-distance travel is commonplace due to modern aviation, and global commerce is more free than it ever has been. Globalization as a phenomenon has been made possible not just through open borders and advances in aviation but also due to the wonders of the Internet.
