If you look in any of Wilderness Ventures’ photos, you will not see one person sending a text or holding up a tablet. The only thing the students are plugged into is nature and the tasks ahead.
People are currently dreaming of going unplugged on their next vacations. This is no problem with the trips that teens took this summer. It’s always fascinating how quickly the tech-buried teens will stop trying to make status updates when they can stare at the face of a mountain or take in a real sunset.
This way, travelers can get lost in real conversations or face a full day of hiking or kayaking without worrying about what is on television or how long until they have to reply to a friend’s instant message.
It’s actually pretty simple when you have the time. Put those phones in a safe place, power down those laptops and see how good it feels to not have to worry about the next 140 characters.
