Everywhere else but here

I know I’ve been remiss with my blogging duties. That’s what happens you don’t travel. Which is really ironic, because it means I now have more time to write. I’ve been enjoying my time away from the computer, but unfortunately, it’s not spent mostly with my tablet. All free time is now spent playing Pocket Planes (oh how I love traveling vicariously through the lives of my Bitizens), drooling over food porn on Instagram, catching up on my favorite blogs on Flipboard, catching up with my siblings overseas on Viber, and reading questionable literature on iBooks.

As I mentioned before, my traveling style has changed. As technology change, so has my (and probably yours, too) Internet habits. Having a mobile device that can let me go online whenever and wherever I am, means that I can share photos and thoughts instantly. It also means I can just as easily connect with friends, and find out what they’re up to or get their recommendations for things or food to try where ever I am.

If you’re always mobile (and love being online all the time), you can follow me on Nuffnang X, which alerts you whenever I post a new entry. It’s a free app available on the App Store and Google Play for both iOS and Android devices. Saves you the trouble of checking the blog every day (considering how erratic I blog lately, it can get really frustrating if you do that!), and you can also subscribe to your other favorite blogs, and get alerts when they have a new post.

  1. Love being mobile while travelling. One of the first things I do when I arrive in a new country is get a SIM card. Sometimes when I tweet or share a photo from a place, I would get recommendations and tips from the locals.

  2. Hi Nina,

    Yes, I agree with you. Sa bilis ng tecnology natin, mabilis din talagang magbago ang buhay natin. Dati kapag ngleave ka sa trabaho para magbakasyon, wala kang gagawin kundi magbakasyon talaga. Pero ngayong may mga mobile devices na, parang kahit nasaan ka connected ka padin city life mo dahil mas madali ka ng mareach :)))

  3. I’ve just discovered Flipboard last week and it’s amazing. But still, from your experience, maybe I should hold off on buying a bigger tablet/phone. Being online, anytime, any place has its perks, but I like being unplugged most times. Hmmm….
