After ordering a latte at the Italian restaurant, I settled comfortably in the corner with my book and Filofax. As the place filled up, I realised that I was surrounded my people on their gadgets. There was a man at the table next to me also dining alone, and he alternated his time between his phone and tablet. I sneakily had a look at other groups of people, and everywhere it seemed people had their phones out. I suppose that I felt very low tech sitting there with my paperback, Filofax and my basic Nokia phone.
I'm definitely not anti-gadget or technology, but I found that having a leisurely dinner whilst reading and making notes in my Filofax was very relaxing. After finishing my meal, I made my way to the closest pub to the coach stop and settled back down with my book and Filo. I thoroughly enjoyed my unplugged evening and will definitely be doing this again in the future.
