I am leaving for Paris in a couple of days - and later, Berlin - for a three-week summer romp. I am seriously considering NOT bringing my iPhone, as I have no intention of using it, except for emergencies. (I am, however, bringing my iPad, although this, too, I am considering leaving behind.) I am praying that I will never need it (i.e., no emergencies).
AM I NUTS FOR NOT WANTING TO BRING MY PHONE?
I realize that so much of this varies for folks. Context is key. I am single, have no children, and am not leaving behind pressing personal or business matters - nothing that cannot possibly wait until I get back. (Of course, I do plan to leave contact info to my parents regarding hotels I will be staying in and will occasionally check-in using local Internet cafes.) As much as technology has made my life more efficient, I can tell how much I am also so dependent on it. This trip, in part, is a way to free myself from that, if at least only temporarily. What are people's thoughts? Have you tried 'to go without'?
