Budget Holidays – ‘Click’ and a new world opens out to you!!
I live in the 21st century where technology and science has given me all the comforts i require. Everything i need is just a click away. I dont have to say ‘Khulja sim sim’ to make wonders happen. The mantra is ‘click’ now. In the morning, when I log on to the Internet, it opens out a whole world to me. I watch the morning news online, do my shopping via e-commerce, i order lunch via restaurants that take online orders, talk to my sister in London as if she was next door, i do everything that i want in a faster and more comfortable way. That’s how the magic of ‘click’ works.
We all like to do a detailed research before we embark on something, don’t we? Why not? For example if i plan a holiday in Shimla, i want to know beforehand what all would interest me there. I would like to read on experiences that people who visited the place had. I want to know the best places to visit while in Shimla, the best climate or the best months to visit the place, the best route to reach the destination and details of comfortable and safe stay while i am there. Earlier you would naturally go to a travel agent and would gulp what all info he gave you right? But now when i have the most powerful tool in my hand, the Internet- why would i leave my decision onto a single person? I will browse through all the info available on net and then make a wise decision. I am sure you want to do the same way. So essentially, ‘click’ has changed the way we live and think.
