How Smartphones Are Changing the Face of Travel

How Smartphones Are Changing the Face of Travel The travel industry has come a long way in just a few short years.

The question of “Does our hotel have Wi-Fi?” likely never passed a traveler’s lips -- mostly because Wi-Fi didn’t even exist. read more »

It’s almost along the lines of when tour buses would drive through San Francisco’s Haight Ashbury to gape at the hippies when I was a kid. Instead, here you sit at a sidewalk cafe, sip an espresso and enjoy the show. Definitely bring your camera. read more »

The next time you walk into a dark room and flip on the light switch, imagine yourself creating a work of art. James Turrell’s approach isn’t quite so simplistic, but he does find inspiration in the basic function of electric illumination.
