    Internet free vacations

    Written by

    We all lead very fast-paced lives. It’s easy, and completely understandable, to get lost in the intricate mesh of work, home, responsibilities, peers, and society. Also, our 24*7 global connectivity, through mobile phones and internet, adds to the whole stress. Usually there is no refuge even on vacations – be it our bosses barking orders, colorful rants of clingy partners or constant check-ins by parents.

    Let’s take a look at these 11 remote, yet beautiful, places where we can totally let go. And yeah, don’t forget to NOT carry your phones or laptops. If someone insists, tell them, with a smirk, that these places are, indeed, internet-free. And even if there is any internet, it has bad reception.

    1. On a yacht off the Coasts of Goa towards Butterfly Beach

    Mark my words, the first view of this pristine beach will make your day. If you really want to disconnect from the world, then do it in style; do it on yacht. Discover unseen shores of the island like a sailor on big adventure with only fluttering butterflies as your companions. Enjoy the meaningful sunrises and purposeful sunsets with a chilled beer in your hand and no worry in the world!

    This white desert is spectacular to look at. Miles and miles of sand and miles and miles of road to self-discovery. Infact, there has been a recent excavation of a place called Dholavira which was later identified to be a part of Indus Valley Civilization. It is an eye-opener for people for the intricate town planning that existed even 5000 years ago. A must-go for people with a penchant for history with a touch of serenity.
