In the modern times, we are highly dependent on technology and gadgets to the extent that we have a gadget for all the things that we need to do and a few more just for the fun of it. The fascination that we hold for our gadgets may seem like it is helping us in becoming more aware about things, learning new things and bringing people closer to one another but the truth is quite the opposite.
The truth is that technology and gadgets may hold all the importance that you would like them to, but they are crippling to the society as well as our personal needs. We live in times when you look into your mobile screen to check out amazing autumn pictures instead of simply looking out of the window.
While it is important to ensure that you are abreast with the latest trends, it is also important to make sure that you do not follow them blindly. If you need to get your fix for a gadget detox, you should set off on a travel where you survive without gadgets.
As difficult as it may sound, there are a lot of places that facilitate the process of reclaiming life and making it free of gadgets and smart machines and making sure that you stand to smell the roses instead of taking a photograph with them.
Here is how a gadget free travel can be survived:
Catch up on your sleep
Travel can be a lot of fun if you like to sleep through it. You can sleep while you are travelling and enjoy exploring when you reach your destination.
You can never be sure, who you meet in the course of life and how they can add value to your existence. Travel becomes an opportunity to meet new people and learn different cultures, beliefs and points of view.
looking out of the window and exploring things is an interesting task in itself. You can learn about sleepy villages, different terrains and exotic locations when you choose to simply look outside the window.
In the rush to achieve things and get some more, we very often lose our own selves. When you are travelling without the aid of electronic gadgets, you can introspect and try to find yourself. It can be surprising to learn how little you know about yourself and how your personality can be changed for the better.
When you are sure about ways in which travel can be made more interesting, there may be little reason for you to need a smart phone or a tab the next time you are on a long travel in a train.
