There’s no feeling quite like being stuck at home, lamenting the bad weather, half-watching a bad TV show, and seeing that photo.
The one of the old work colleague drinking wine in the south of France.
Or the one of a cousin you forgot existed sailing in Croatia.
Or the one of an arch nemesis from high school walking along the snowy streets of New York.
Why are you there and I am not?
What decisions did I make in life to lead me to this moment?
What is your exact location so I can book a holiday and recreate that photo?
While social media is awash with photos of everyone in beautiful places, our vigorous documentation of travel is at odds with another growing trend: switching off.
Perhaps that’s why Australians remain undecided when it comes to the value of social media on holiday. According to a new survey by Expedia, 30 percent of people say they see using social media on holiday as a positive, 26 percent say it detracts from the experience, and 16 percent believe there are moments missed on holidays due to being on social media.
