In honor of my upcoming vacation, I thought it would be fun to do a comparison of what the differences are from the last time I went overseas in 2009 to France and Spain.
2009: I used a phone calling card and used telephone booths to make calls home
2018: I will be using my cell phone and just swapping out my SIM card
2009: First Flight Ever
2018: Frequent Flyer Now
2009: In HighSchool
2018: Almost three years our of college
2009: Paris, France & Barcelona, Spain
2018: Southern Ireland
2009: Met Akon at the London Airport during a layover
2018: Hope to run into someone famous while flying business class on our layover home @ JFK
2009: Brought a digital camera, it was a Pink Sony
2018: Will be using my Canon DSLR to capture all the shots
2009: Posted all my photos onto Facebook a few days after I got back from my trip. I had to use two Albums because there was a photo limit.
2018: Most of my photos will be posted real-time on Instagram
2009: Bermuda shorts and Polo V-neck were all the rage, brought an array of different colored shirts and then used the same three pairs jeans/shorts
2018: I’m worrying about what to pack still. How can I be stylish and fit it all in my bag.
2009: I had my I-Pod Nano filled with all the hits
2018: I stream from Spotify on my phone
What are some fun things from the first time you went on an overseas trip vs today if you took one?
