I fly there and again with Virgin Atlantic and, earlier than leaving, get caught in a ultimate wormhole of movies on easy methods to get upgraded (apparently you should use your Tesco Clubcard factors). Having not bagged sufficient groceries, I strive one other TikTok urged method: asking outright. Sadly it was a fail however the girl at check-in very kindly swapped me to an aisle seat.
The ultimate verdict
So, how did TikTok measure up? Sure I discovered some nice locations and possibly went farther from the overwhelmed observe than I’d with a information ebook. However I did miss some key New York sights. And I don’t simply purchase a information ebook for the guidelines – I need the scent of contemporary paper, the enjoyment of perusing on the aircraft, of flicking again and reminiscing, and lending it to others.
The perfect information books are extra like espresso desk trinkets, inviting friends to ask “Oh, Nicaragua… have you ever been?” so you may regale them together with your story about making iguana soup within the jungle.
You additionally must query how unbiased all these TikTokers are. They’re alleged to declare in the event that they’re working in partnership with a enterprise however certainly there are some blurred traces. Plus, there are murky questions round who can entry your knowledge and know what you’re watching given the app’s Chinese language possession.
So perhaps I’ll maintain utilizing it – nevertheless it gained’t be my Bible.
