Why take anything on holiday?

When I get away I don't want to be contactable. In an emergency then there will be some way to get hold of me but else no way. Contact home is via the postcard.

People that whine about slow links or expensive service in some parts of the world miss the point. Take a tip from the locals and relax.

I find people on the beach wittering into phones annoying.

    Indeed. My idea of a good vacation is to bolt the doors, unplug the phone, stop mail delivery, close the curtains, and stay home. Alone, preferably. (Well, the dog can stay, as long as all the people go.) But then, maybe I'm just a bit odd.

    Sometimes its more than just me, and it's nice to call up to the room and say "Hey! The <feature_of_interest> is/are <superlative>, come on down!"
