Gone Camping

I apologize for the long absence. I went camping.
Been waiting for ever for this time off.
Yet I thought I'd be able to write an odd post here and there while on hols.
Well, I was unable to access an internet point for the whole duration of my trip!
6 days without Internet.
6 days without technology.

6 days without T.V either.
While I enjoyed being "disconnected" from the rest of the world, I didn't think I would miss it but I did.
Turn out campsites based in the middle of the countryside don't have all internet access. Not that I could use it if I wanted to. Because moving from campsites to campsites on a daily basis make it quite hard.

What's very hard too is the ground.
A bit of a redundancy but when there's hardly anything between you and the ground, you do tend to feel a lot more of it.

All in all, a very good holidays but it's nice to return to technology and a comfortable bed.


  1. Was wondering if you had fallen of the edge of the planet. Became a follower of your blog a week and a half ago and since then no posts! Still its good to get away from it all for a while. I like the graph of sleep Quality v. Density of Ground. A very engineering approach!

  2. Hi JOD! Wow. Thank you, I am very flattered and very behind! Behind! Behind! I saw your emails. I need to reply to you but i'm just back. will reply to you on Sunday! Monday at the latest! Thanks for the compliment on the graph. Was trying to approach camping in a different way. ;-)

  3. Finally remembered how to leave a comment that wasn't headed "Anonymous". No rush in replying to emails - I expect you need to chill out for the weekend after all that camping!

  4. Hahaha...I love the graph. I'm jealous! I want to go camping. I love sleeping on lumpy ground lol (no seriously though...I love camping). Anyway, thanks for visiting my blog :) I'm currently milking the last 100 pages of Divergent. It might take me 6 months to finish. It's soooo good. I don't want it to be over.

  5. Sounds like fun! I totally get why you missed the internet, though. The things we've learned to depend on, eh? I've just passed the Versatile Blogger Award to you, if you want it. You can find details here: Thanks for hosting a great blog!
