If I leave home for a year and can take only one additional thing besides clothing and personal care items, I will take my mobile phone. There are several reasons to support my idea.
First, I am bad at understanding maps especially of new places. When I went to China, I forgot to pick up my mobile phone from the hotel, and there was no choise for me other than using local paper maps, because I was not be able to speak Chinese at that time. Then, I remembered that I had a dinner with my friend Tony in China and I tried to go the restaurant with maps. However, I was bad at understanding the map or the location where I was on paper, I was not able to see my friend on that day. My friend were angry and I regretted not to picking up my mobile phone at that time. If I have a mobile phone, I can use GPS and easily visit anywhere I want to go.
Second, it is my daily routine to talk with my wife Nami and the conversation with her helps me to relieve all my stress. If I can not hear her voice, it will make me discourage and I will not be able to concentrate on the trip. Moreover, I promised my wife that I made her smile everyday when I asked her to marry me. Even if I am far away from her, I do not want to break my promise.
Finally, thesedays the quality of mobile phones becomes higher and higher. Most of things could be found by using google and I cannot imagine the life without such a convenience tool. I can manage and solve not a few things just by checking web site through cell phone.
In conclusion, without doubt I will take my cell phone to a trip to spend more confortable time.
