My low-tech holiday, or: my internet detox

My wife and I are off for two weeks in the south island of New Zealand for sightseeing and skiing. Because we’re traveling in a camper van I’ve decided not to take my laptop. We’re going to get a prepaid SIM for phone purposes as international roaming is super expensive. I also don’t want to spend my holiday camped in internet cafes. This means the following:

  • No email
  • No tech news (stressful considering the pending Apple announcement)
  • No new podcasts
  • No photo uploads (I shoot in RAW)

I’m tempted to bring my E61i as it has wifi but I’m going to hold out on that one. Sounds like a healthy detox of clean air, beautiful scenery, sking and no internet. I may not survive.
