It was obvious we weren't going to be having much time online, and I felt grateful for the break. We visit Penang virtually every 2 months, and since our last trip to Georgetown, we have relished our trips to Malaysia. The food, the people, the architecture....and most importantly, friends.
It's a long story as to how we became such good friends with the family that owns a really nice car rental place near our hotel, but to sum it up, they have an internet cafe at the back of their store. Billy headed off one evening to find a good internet connection and do some work while Kaya and I hung out at the hotel. He told me about the little internet place he had found, and Kaya and I came to visit the place as it was 1 minuted away from our hotel. We soon became friends with everyone who worked there, included the family of six that owned the place and lived upstairs. Kaya was so obsessed with the four little girls that she demanded I drop her off there ever morning.
Same thing happened this trip. Kaya ran over to visit the girls and I got to hang out with their Mum, whom I miss dearly.
I had little time for internet this trip, partially because our hotel still had limited connection and also because I wanted time off of work. Time away from email, social media, and everything else. I did have some time online, here and there. But it wasn't much. I was able to relax and enjoy myself.
Do you enjoy having time offline? How often do you unplug?
