One of my best friends recently went on an exotic vacation to Guatemala and Belize and I was jealous for a variety of reasons. But mainly because she was totally out of reach. Her BlackBerry was barely functional, and most of the places she stayed had little or no electricity. Now I know that sounds like a nightmare for a geek and in general it would be, but I think about getting away from it all — no Internet, no email, no phone calls, and no TV, and I can feel myself start to decompress just thinking about it.
I think it's healthy for all of us to let go of everything once in a while, don't you? Or do you hate any disconnections from your gadgets?
