My wife and son recently went to Tanzania to visit family, and when we left the travel agency they gave us the itinerary and that was it. No tickets, nothing. When I questioned them, they said that they no longer issue tickets. Going to the airport, all that they wanted were the passports, from that they confirmed the flight information and only as a matter of my request they confirmed the booking number etc., so that my wife was on her way to Tanzania and not some other place!

The actual process of buying tickets has become so much simpler from only a few short years ago. But now, of course, the problems arise in going through security.

But all in all, when I spoke to my wife and because we were well prepared her trip was enjoyable even with a 6-year old in tow. There were absolutely no issues with security anywhere. It certainly helps to be prepared before you travel.

I hope one day in the future, we can do the travel through the internet too – I mean we just need to find out how to change into digital pieces and use a human modem transferee!

Technology….wow, it’s advancing.

Unfortunately, the money the airlines will be saving through this measure is not going to benefit the passengers…

Now they toss a bottle of water at you, no food and the seats are small.
I think the carefree days of travel are gone.
