Staying Away from Technology on Vacation

I recently came across two news items that talk about the latest trend in technology and travel.  One was from ABC news.  The other was from which may have put it best by calling the trend “digital detox.”

What are they talking about?  The idea that people want to go on vacation to get away from it all— technology, email, phones, Wi-Fi and so forth.  Funny isn’t it.  We are so infatuated with the latest and greatest, yet it is driving us back to what vacations are all about.  And that is regenerating our own batteries by shutting down.

Yeah, hotels are coming up with lots of fancy names for it.  Like “Braincation Zones” at Marriott and “tech-free areas” at Renaissance.  And even the “Disconnect-to-Reconnect” program from the Four Seasons Costa Rica.

But all you really need is some will power, a beautiful location, a spectacular property, and some great weather.  So, where do you want to go?
