There was a promising new post this morning titled "How technology has transformed the travel industry?" I thought it was going to be an interesting topic but sadly it turned out to be spam. Then later this morning I was thinking about it again as I was standing in line at a tourist location in Jasper, Alberta. The line was going horribly slow as I timed the average customer taking over 5 minutes to get their tickets. As I got closer to the front I realized it was slow because the customers came ill-prepared and were asking questions that could have easily been answered if they'd done their homework on-line ahead of time. And then once we were within the location, people were wandering like lost puppies not sure what to do next.
I'm happy to report I was prepared and I was in and out in less than 30 seconds and knew where to go and what I wanted to do. It was a great day. But it did make me wonder how we are using technology to improve our travels. Research online, reservations, e-commerce, digital photography, even up to the minute weather forecasts so you can plan your day. How is technology improving your travel experience?
