electronic devices have muddied the reality of the classic American road trip. Yes, a GPS makes not getting lost much easier than using maps, but then there was always a little fun in getting lost, no? Cell phones are the real culprit. Without cell phones you had to enjoy the scenery and company, now with cell phones you get to loathe both of those when you're not in cell range. Shame.
Mount Aspiring National Park/ Otago, New Zealand This is my top destination ever: to hike over New Zealand. Hope that someday this will happen..
