This page contains great ideas on how to use technology to enhance your next road trip or getaway from Best Buy. And here is my #1:
My family recently returned from a 13 day trip to Orlando Florida. We all have different needs and different choices to make when it comes to staying connected.
The first item on my list was a security camera system. I had a new one to test out, and it was perfect timing because my son had just lost his keys and we could not get a locksmith from our apartment complex to replace the old key system until we would be back from vacation. My mom will say I am revealing too much here, she is the one that says never say when you are leaving town on a social media post, but the truth is, I wanted extra security. We do have two locks on the door, and the lost key was for only one of them, so I knew there would be no issue. I always like to have a back-up plan, so a security camera in the living room was prefect for us! I checked it regularly and luckily saw nothing new!
I also like to stay connected via social media when I am away. Even if no one else thinks I am interesting, I think I am and like to post a lot of pictures. Tablets were on sale so I purchased a back-up smaller sized tablet. Yes, I had two tablets and two smartphones on this most recent trip. And my laptop from Best Buy! And from the number of views and likes on my various social media pages, I made the right decision, I was entertaining throughout! That is part of how I enjoy our vacations, after all, the pictures we take are for us to remember the good times we had as a family later on. And they are for letting our extended families see what we are doing while we are away. They appreciate that, at least that is what my mother-in-law tells me!
How could I not post this while I was away?
And I have a 12 year old tween son. He has a smartphone and the constant battle is trying to have him stay connected with his family that he is physically with, and not all the folks on social media that feel they must all stay in touch with each other constantly. Luckily we still win that battle, but today’s tweens have to feel they can stay connected if they need to.
Best Buy has all of the tech you need to stay connected when on vacation! Again, feel free to see what you need before you leave town at BestBuy.com!
