Vacation life before Smartphones

I was just wondering if life must have been super boring pre-smartphone era. Especially when you go on vacation.

First up, you need to arrange a physical camera. Then buy a camera roll that can only take about 35 photos. So, you must carefully take vacation pictures well within this limit. And when you take a photo, you don’t know exactly how it turned out to be since the viewfinder of the camera is too small to be relied upon.

You come home, take that roll to the nearby shop to make photocopies out of it, and realize in some photos all of you have your eyes closed and some photos didn’t focus correctly at all. Oh no!

Your heart sinks right there.

And the worst part? There’s no way you get to share these photos with that random stranger on the internet. No Instagram stories, no instant gratification. How pathetic!
