Do smartphones make it hard to escape work on vacation?

Do smartphones make it hard to escape work when you're on holiday? - video | Technology | "Would you take a call from your boss if you were on the beach? Michael White heads to the Brighton seafront to see how many holidaymakers are using their smartphones and taking business calls when they're supposed to be relaxing and getting away from it all" - TRAVEL: Is This The Best Hotel In The World? "  . . . as a person that loves hotels and traveling to seek the best in the world. Some of my favorites over the years have been the Cape Grace in South Africa, the George IV in Paris and the Washington, D.C. Four Seasons. Conde Nast Travelers has announced the winners in its annual reader survey for the 'Best Hotel in the World". The winner was the Oualia Hotel on Hamilton Island in Australia. The hotel obtained an unheard of perfect score of 100 from the magazines readers. The hotel is located on the Great Barrier Reef and has sixty large rooms. The resort is adults only."

Jewish Travel Through the Ages | Jewish & Israel News "Among us Jews, it’s a common saying that there’s one of us everywhere. These days, whether it’s the recently released Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldier backpacking through India or South America, or those who run the Chabad house all the way in Laos, the Jewish people make their presence known in nearly every nook and cranny of the world. Throughout history, some Jews traveled to distant parts to escape persecution, others were explorers who were curious about the culture or science of new places, and some just ended up on strange shores completely by chance."
