How many of us wonder how we survived before the internet arrived in our lives. We often forget that once upon a time, we didn't have such a host of information at our fingertips, and today there are plenty of people who can't seem to function if they're not connected at all times. Before the internet, many of us were ignorant of some of the stranger things in life, meaning the world remained a mystery.
If we couldn't travel to a country, the only knowledge we had was from travelers, TV shows, books... But with the internet we're all able to globe trot and discover new things, albeit virtually and from the comfort of our home...
