Lol no. Global high speed mobile data is what killed the magic. In fact I would argue that mobile dumbphones were the beginning of the end. In the golden age, you went to the library and got a book on some country, you leafed through the pages and called a number for a hotel halfway a round the world, accounting for time zones, and you spoke to a human on the phone who may not have been a native speaker of your language. You arranged things, you went the bank to convert your currency, and then weeks later you got a taxi at the airport, tried to explain your destination to some guy who doesn't speak your language, and hopefully arrived there, at which point you were at the mercy of the person you spoke to weeks before. Can't read the menu? Better befriend someone and hope there isn't some hilarious misunderstanding leading to a learning experience.
Now you can just surf the airwaves the whole way and select your favorite instagram ready room on arrival, if it doesn't tickle your fancy you switch rooms at the last second and uber over to that address instead, while looking at the superhost's nudes to check if their pubic hair is trimmed according to your casual sex subculture's current fashion. All the money stuff is done with apple pay and you don't even have to do currency conversions or touch foreign money. Don't understand a sign? Point your phone at it and it will translate for you. Misunderstanding? Leave a 1 star review in your own language and hope it goes viral.
