How long can you live without internect access?

I don’t like to be away from home for anything more than two weeks. It’s not necessary that I get homesick as such, I just miss the routine and comfort of staying in one place. So I like to have a station at least, for example, London then venture out from here across Europe and each trip lasting no longer than two weeks. I really can’t do those gap year trips where you travel South America for 18 months etc. So two weeks is about the max time I can live without any access to internet connections at all.

I don’t own iAnything or smartphones so I don’t check, or twit, or check in or upload stuff on the go and I think that is a good thing. You should enjoy where you are without taking the cream off the cake and forgetting to be in the midst of what you are doing. I sometimes laugh at those who are so busy taking videos of what’s happening right in front of them, for example, in a concert or show, whilst they miss out on the joy of being there. So I quite enjoy travelling without any connection to the rest of the world via the web.

What about you? How long can you survive without accessing the internet?

    I hear you, we are so dependent of internet for almost everything. I like to turn off the electronics at a certain hour, like now and resort to reading the old fashioned way with books, or writing. I prefer to read paper instead of LCD screens, it bothers my eyes after awhile. Happy Journey to you.
