Family Life

Our country family getaway






‘We’re plugged in 24 hours a day now. We’re all part of one big machine, whether we are conscious of that or not. And if we can’t unplug from that machine, eventually we’re going to become mindless.’ – Alan Lightman

We Unplugged for the weekend! When was the last time you unplugged from technology?

    While we went away a month ago, I took the laptop but only used it at night when the kids were asleep in the caravan. This is the first time ever I have taken the internet with me. I love getting away somewhere new and checking out the sights, haven’t been to Echuca though.

    I love Echuca. A friend got married there on a boat on the river. Beautiful …

    Yes, haven’t unplugged from technology for a while! Where is this place? It reminds me of a place we visited as children on a family holiday – Timbertown somewhere near Port Macquarie, NSW.

    These are lovely shots, and unplugging regularly is a great idea, I think :)

    We had a staycation a couple of weekends ago, and it meant no computer. You never realise how nice it is to unplug for a little while, until you do it.

    Wow, those old-school coaches look awesome, I really would like to shoot some photographs in a scene like that!

    I love that you unplugged somewhere like Echuca. We unplug all the time and then I miss something I was supposed to know about. I hate having to warn everyone that I am unplugging!

    I love to get away, but unplugging is soooooooo hard!

    We had a ‘forced unplug’ a few weeks ago, when we had a power cut which lasted several hours. It was a nice break from technology, but I must admit, I did breathe a sigh of relief when the power came back on!
