Which Technology Would You Miss The Most?
I just returned from an amazing mini-vacation where I was literally disconnected from technology and media. Disconnected from the web. Disconnected from my phone. Disconnected from television. Disconnected from radio. I stayed at a charming guest house that had free Wifi but since the cell service was non-existent, I decided to take my vacation concept one step further. I had a technology-free vacation. No use pulling out the laptop when you’re having fun skiing a mountain, relaxing in the hot tub, enjoying a home-cooked gourmet meal or drinking some top notch wine, right? It was nice to focus on people instead of being tempted by the digital screen. I think it made my time in the mountains that much more meaningful.
- Facebook status updates and being able to upload photos to my page
- Texting or calling friends while on the mountain to coordinate a meet up (because someone, usually me, always gets separated from the group)
- FourSquare check-ins (who doesn’t want to check-in on a mountain?!)
- Yelp access to check restaurant ideas for the NYC leg of my trip
