Two and half years ago when I bought Manzana (my first ever iPad) I was thrilled to pieces. And I still use him a lot, but always at home, or in a hotel room when travelling. Turns out that the iPad is just a bit too big and heavy to be as mobile as I thought it was going to be. I think even the iPad Air would feel too big for just carrying around in my bag. And so today I realised a long-standing geeky dream and bought an iPad mini.
Meet Manzanilla. She’s super thin and has a fab retina screen, and now also has a rather smart red “smart cover”. And she doesn’t seem to weigh any more than my iPhone (weird). Anyhow, perfect timing as I am off to Sanlúcar de Barrameda tomorrow for a bit more travel and sherry research. Quite excited to see how Manzanilla travels.
