Wanna get away? Wanna go to somewhere far away?

Sure you do.

How many of us get an opportunity to do something that, on the surface, looks like something that everyone wants to do but often times seems crazy or unattainable?

You are probably saying ‘that never happens‘. And if you were to live on the surface of life you wouldn’t be wrong. But, like most things, appearances can be deceiving.

Opportunities are like everyday miracles. They happen all the time, but you have to be paying attention to see them. And then, when you see them, you have to act on them.

Buy the ticket, take the ride.

Which brings us to my current situation. I began writing this post from the airport in Cincinnati and had to shut it down because my delayed flight appeared and it was time to go. Now I’m sitting in an outdoor garden area at the Fira Barcelona Gran Via at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.

One week ago this was not on my radar at all. And then I got a tour and was shown some things that are being created in Louisville that have to do with technology. Then, when I was presented with the chance to go to a conference where next generation tech is released to the world, of course I jumped at the opportunity.

Thursday I got my flight to leave on Sunday and late Saturday night I started packing.

From Samsung and LG to Audi and Mercedes-Benz, nearly every manufacturer and think tank is here to show off what they think could be the next big thing. Most will end up on the floor. But some will show up in consumer products next year and beyond. If you want a better idea of what #MWC2019 is all about click here.

I’ll update more as the week progresses, starting with a recap from day 1 later tonight.
