How connected do you stay while you’re away? My answer used to be “reasonably” — after all, it’s easy to find wifi and nice to keep up with one’s email, if simply to avoid coming home to a completely chaotic inbox. Increasingly, though, I’m less and less inclined to do even that.
Of course, I still tend to travel with at least one digital device, whether it’s a phone or a tablet; I don’t usually set auto-reminders to let people know they can’t expect an immediate response, so I try to take note when urgent inquiries come in and type out a quick reply.
How do you balance things?
