5 Reasons To Disconnect While Traveling
Unplug and enjoy your vacation.

Technology has taken over our daily lives. We rely on it for work, communication, and so much more. But when you go on vacation, you should limit your use of gadgets to maximize the enjoyment of your trip. Here are 5 reasons why you should disconnect while traveling.

  1. You can save money.
    It's a sad thought that an important amenity one looks for in a hotel is WiFi access.  Being connected is important, but only for emergencies and it shouldn't be a top priority. While most hotels have WiFi, it isn't always free. If you disconnect, you don't have to pay ridiculous amounts of money for Internet. You can also save up on your phone bill by not having to go on roaming or getting a mobile Internet plan for a while.
  2. You get to enjoy the moment through your eyes and not through a screen.
    When we see something beautiful, our instinct is to get our phones out and take as many pictures as possible to capture the moment. But in reality, to truly capture the moment, you need to appreciate what you see with your eyes and without the purpose of taking a photo. A picture may last longer, but nothing beats an actual memory you took the time to make.
  3. You get to meet new people.
    If you are too preoccupied talking to people who aren't with you on your phone, chances are you won't notice the people who are physically around you. Traveling is a great way to make new friends, so while you are away, disconnect from your phone and focus on the people you meet. You didn't fly or drive a long distance just to chat with people back home.
