Using Nokia Lumia 925 for We Said Go Travel

 

Lisa and NokiaThank you to Nokia Connects for sharing a Nokia Lumia 925 with us and letting us write about it on their site!

Seeing the world is many people’s dream, and with inventions like the commercial airliner, taking time out to explore cultures and climates around our planet is very possible in this day and age. Having a powerful and reliable device to record our adventures is also within our grasp, and that’s why we have traveller and writer, Lisa Rajna, to tell her story of when she took the Lumia 925 with her to South-East Asia…

“The powerful camera was far superior to what we were using and the Internet access and applications that were available opened up a new world with this innovative device”

My husband, George, and I took a sabbatical year in 2008-9 and travelled for eleven months in twelve countries mainly in South-East Asia. During our meanderings, we explored incredible UNESCO sites like Borobudur in Indonesia and Ayutthaya in Thailand, snorkelled and scuba-dove in Sipadan, Borneo and came face to face with a variety of cultures from Indonesia to Mongolia. With all the walking and smaller food portions, I lost nearly sixty pounds and was thrilled with the new me. On the second anniversary of our first date, George asked me to marry him underwater in Koh Lipe, Thailand. I never imagined that technology would be an important part of our life and our adventures but after meeting online I should have guessed that it would be.

Before I met George, I was still using film to take pictures; however, as I evolved inside and out, I joined the digital revolution! After returning to Los Angeles and getting married at the location of our first date, we started a blog called “We Said Go Travel” to share our journeys. Armed with an HD flip video camera, we began shooting video and opened a YouTube channel under the “We Said Go Travel” name.
