Yes and it was awesome.
It was on cruise to California and the shipboard internet was so bad that I ended up leaving my laptop in the safe for most of the itinerary.
At first I was a bit p*ssed about not being able to take advantage of my “free internet perk” but after a day or two, I realized that the lack of good internet was a blessing.
No internet felt FREEING.
No access to blogging broke my habit of feeling like I had to post every day.
No emails meant that non-family learned to figure ish out when I wasn’t available.
No mindless internet surfing meant reading, napping and people-watching.
I spent most afternoons jotting down musings in a notebook while slurping on calorie-laden whipped cream beverages that a friendly barista would concoct for me (and that were not allowed on my coffee card) as I sat at the counter and chatted.
It was BLISS.
In recent times and until I understand how to best use them, I’ve stopped accessing FB and Twitter and no longer auto-post to my posts to FB page and Twitter. My blog and Instagram (now set to Private) are where I limit myself to now.
Have you ever unplugged from the Internet for more than a week?
