Most people dream of a vacation without any technologies, no Blackberry, no laptops, no pagers, no cellphones, just you and nature. Unfortunately we always take every gadget we can think of on every vacation. Worse still we use them and then feel guilty of ruining our holidays. Sounds familiar right?

We are coining a new word the “tech-vacation”. This refers to using gadgets during vacations to enhance the vacation experience. Yes gadget lovers, your gadgets are part of your vacation and you use it to your heart’s content and feel happy about it.

Let me describe our family’s latest tech-vacation, and how wonderful it felt

  1. The adults got an Ipad Mini to try out. We got to read our E Books on the Nook App on that gorgeous screen. Casual surfing, You-Tube videos, Angry Birds all completed the experience. The experience of using a new gadget was priceless.
  2. The older child typically is a clinger; he just stays stuck to us. He got a Vinci 2 tab to try out. Our joy was endless watching him play Fruit Ninjas. We even enjoyed the tab ourselves with the adults section which kids cannot access. Then he played some more pre-installed games.
  3. Every one shared the Nook Tablet especially when we visited the local Barnes and Nobles.

This was an outstanding vacation, without any guilt. The technologies tried were new and kept us engaged when we were not on the beach. In between we got some work done too. So may we recommend the tech-vacation to all? Just get your gadgets from http://www.gizmotakeout.com and enjoy your vacation.We look forward to your comments for more ideas of gadgets to take on our next vacation.
