Digital Detox: Should you leave your phone switched off while traveling?

•••
Peeps, we need to talk about phones! I’ve done it on numerous occasions: leaving my mobile switched off on travels that weren’t work related. And you know what? I didn’t have a problem with it at all; I didn’t miss refreshing my Gmail inbox every five minutes or responding to WhatsApp messages on the go. But equally, when switching it back on after my plane [...]

Should you bring a laptop on your travels?

•••
I'm no expert, but I would assume to about 7 out of 10 people the answer would be simple: No. It's heavy, it's bulky, it reminds you too much of work and might even give you pangs of guilt for not catching up on all those to-do's you were hoping to ignore until you get back home and back to reality. I once asked a series of people whether they bring a not[...]

•••
Even if it feels as though the world is getting worse in many ways, it's really important to remember that what we see on the news isn't the whole story. Everywhere in the world, things are improving, progress is being made in a million different ways - and nowhere more so than in the world of technology. Our phones and tablets, often the subject of so much [...]

If you’re an avid reader of this website, you’ll have noticed a great little series we are currently running on the subject of „The New Style Of Business… IN MY CITY“ . The theme was suggested to us by HUAWEI, who have just launched the campaign for their new HUAWEI MateBook, a slim, super stylish and ultra-multitasking cross between tablet and laptop. [...]

Communicating differently. Better. More.

What is your favorite part of traveling? Lounging by the beach? Sleeping in at a wonderful hotel? Eating fresh seafood with your feet in the sand? I'm sure if you've made it to this website you appreciate all these things but there is one aspect of traveling that I find especially noteworthy - it is meeting new people. Sure, we meet people all the time. At p[...]

A Traveller's Little Helper: Mission Control

•••
Hands up, who has ever been in a situation, when you needed to make last-minute travel arrangements on the road, but comparing prices and making a booking on your phone was too inconvenient (damn you, tiny screen); or when the only available internet connection was way too slow to load those travel websites and apps - making your research equally frustrating[...]

Get your phone ready for travel

•••
Hands up if you're a Fandroid?!? I knew it wasn't just me! While I loved my iPhone 3GS back in the day, for the last 3 years I've been more than happy with my Android phone which does everything an iPhone does and cost me almost a third of what the latest iPhone does. I'm currently the proud owner of a LG Nexus 5 but also have a soft spot for Samsung phones.[...]

Keeping your gadgets safe and stylish

•••
When traveling, we usually carry some form of technology that requires a bit of care. We carry all sorts of gadgets to help us stay in contact with family at home and friends scattered around the globe. Not to mention we have to carry our beautiful cameras to capture all the worldly scenes we encounter. The thought of hearing that dreaded *CRUNCH* when thump[...]

Photo tour through Lisbon

Let me ask you, which phone do you use? Why that one? What do you like about it? What do you need it for? The question for the perfect phone is on my mind often, I think it has actually become the most important item to bring with me on a trip, more than a laptop, a camera or even a credit card. My ideal smart phone needs to be intuitive to use, take a[...]

Social Seating on Airplaines

•••
Let's be honest: Traveling alone surely has its benefits, but sometimes it would be nice to have someone to talk to, to share travel tales with, to ask for advice on good coffeeshops at the destination you're flying to or even to hold your hand during flight turbulences. Last year we told you about the Hi Matic Hotel in Paris, where people staying at the hot[...]
