The evolution of the phones I’ve used on this trip since my original iPhone got stolen on Koh Phi Phi in May.
After it got stolen I just used a notepad for two months before getting another smartphone for $95 in Indonesia. But recently that one had become practically unusable, working only about 10% of the time, with scrolling essentially nonexistent, so I decided that it was time to stop torturing myself and get a phone that I actually liked. I asked around and was able to score a (barely) used 4S, and have been spending the subsequent hours marveling at the fact it actually works (and well! what a treat) and finding excuses to send emoji texts to everyone I know.
Anyways, it’s great to finally feel human again, and if you’re on Instagram you can now find me at lifebeginswithhappyhour. Just in time to kick off Melbourne’s 3-week Midsumma festival, during which I expect to have a fair amount of ridiculousness.
I made a list of all the things I’ll never take for granted after backpacking Southeast Asia and a decent internet connection was at the top of it - which is really saying something considering it beat out things like showers, clean sheets, sidewalks, and toilet paper.
