I just got back from a two-week vacation in Norway — my husband and I rented a small cabin in the craggy Lofoten Islands. It was an amazing experience, and I’m excited to share pictures over the next few days and weeks. I’m also excited to report that for the first time in I don’t know how long, I managed to take a vacation without bringing my laptop!
Of course, we did have an iPad that we used to go online, read the news, and check email from time to time. But because the interface was so different, I didn’t actually feel compelled to respond to the messages I received, or to try to do any work. This was every bit as liberating as one might imagine, and while I can’t say I now relish the thought of dealing with everything that accumulated in my absence, I am so grateful that I was able to disconnect and focus on enjoying myself.
Do you travel with a laptop?
