You wouldn't think it would impact your vacation but it totally does here's why.
I am walking down to the beach. I have to stop 20 times so I don't run into the person that stops in front of me taking a selfie.
I am enjoying the waves hitting the sand, then two women block my view and start taking selfies in an almost X rated style in front of all the kids.
If there is anything historic or interesting to look at you'll have to fight with hordes of people taking photos with their phones and unlike back in the camera days people are just plain rude with their phones.
When you drive in these small vacation towns people take selfies while driving, this is perhaps the most disturbing of all and the frequency in which it happens is shocking!
I've just hit the tip of the iceberg, but it is bad!

My idea of a vacation is a nice cabin or house with a good view of a lake and hammock where I can literally just unwind away from it all for a week or so. No phone signal, no internet, no cable or streaming services. Maybe a good book or two and a fishing rod, I would be set.

Why do you care? Let everyone be whoever they want to be, i couldn't care less, i don't get it. Maybe i'm part of the 'selfie-crazy' people or who knows but when i'm out there i don't care or wonder or watch other people, whatever they do is what they want to do or be, who cares!

And here I am, excited that I'm going to be going skydiving for the first time soon. And giving some serious thought into doing weekly-biweekly travel for a magic the gathering tournament series on the east coast that's mostly in driving range.
