Disconnecting;

I found this quote last week…..somewhere on the internet (thank god there’s a tag; via Striking Truths) and could not believe the timing. After a busy start to 2013, with work picking up at an increasing speed and uni also doing the same (thanks Murphy for your stupid law), I said yes to a last minute trip with my bestie. Considering the fact we haven’t spent more than a whole day alone in a year is a crazy thought (group catch ups with friends in Melbourne &Sydney last year don’t count).

So as you read this, I’m on my way to the airport for a week in Broome for quality, relaxing time with my best friend, S. I’m bringing my tablet with me to do some study but other than that, I plan to read, write and relax by the pool and have big chats with S.

Can I do 5 days with no social media or my phone? For someone that spends a crazy amount of time on Instagram…we’ll see about that one!

  1. I’ve seen this quote (or similar) around the internets a couple of times and I really like it. Now that the weather is better and the sun is out (at least every once in a while), I find myself doing exactly these things more often. Like looking up at the sky and taking in the beauty of the real world. I wander around smiling and sighing when it’s sunny. Which, by the way, is SO typically Swedish – we’re crazy about the sun since we get it so seldom.

    • The sun & the warmth is a beautiful thing! After spending the past week in 35 degree weather on the beach & then coming back to 21 degree windy weather, I’m regretting how much I didn’t take it the warmth as much as I should of! (degrees are in celcius) x

  2. This is my first time seeing this quote, love it! I think that’s a great little challenge. 5 days without social media; no phone, computer, tablet, etc… I’m like you, I travel, blog, and stay connected with people all over the world and it’s important – but the thought of no social media makes me smile knowing how refreshing it would be, but also how difficult it would be! 🙂

    I don’t even know how I stumbled upon this blog, but I’m glad I did!! Great stuff! Keep it up!

    • Thank you for your comment & I’m glad you found my blog, I’m loving yours!

      I actually thought I’d have no reception which is why I said 5 days with NO social media however I was surprised when I had full service with the worst tele provider in Aus!

      So instead, I had limited time on social media! I kept my phone on flight mode the whole trip and checked facebook/twitter/instagram etc in blocks (every few hours instead of notifications going off and interrupting my quality time with bestie).

      Look forward to reading some of your stuff Hemad!

  3. Oh, I love that quote! I had to pin it. I’m sure with your uni schedule and also having a blog that you are the same as me and know how difficult it is to switch off from that sort of technology completely! But whenever I do – wow, I feel amazing and so blissed out 🙂
