Switching Off on Holiday

As you read this, I'm probably in the car on the Wales or I might still be in Manchester or maybe I'm already at the caravan. Basically I'm going to Wales for five days and I'm going to attempt to challenge myself to go internet free. 

It shouldn't be too hard. The first time I went to Anglesey, the caravan site we were on didn't have Wifi so it was literally impossible to use the internet anyway. At the next caravan site we had Wifi so I was able to fulfill all my blogging and Instagram needs. 

We're now at a different caravan site so I'm not sure if we even have access to Wifi. Usually this would terrify me. I need the internet. I need to know what's going on. I need to see what my family are doing on Facebook. I need to keep up-to-date with Twitter wars and of course, Instagram a holiday moment. 

But this time I feel different. I feel like I've used the internet too much recently and I'm actually looking forward to not have internet access. Anglesey is a place full of beauty and wildness and I just want to appreciate it. Of course, I'll take pictures to post when I'm home but I really do like the idea of switching off for the holiday. 

I'm going to have chance to go on walks with Ellis and his family, take Ruby the dog for ball throws on the beach and be able to finish the book I'm reading! 

I'm not worried that I won't be able to see what's happening on social media, I'm sure if it's important enough it'll still be there when I'm back. I'm definitely not going to be taking my laptop so the only thing I'll be using will be my phone. Luckily, when we are out and about 99% of the places don't have any 3G/4G so I'm never distracted! 

Overall, I'm really looking forward to being in Wales, whether I switch off or not. If you want to find out if I did manage to switch off or not, just check my Twitter and you can see if I've tweeted anything!
