No cell phone, no voicemail, no Facebook. Sketchbook, canvases and paints and camera. And something new...my iPad. Through sporadic Internet access, it was the one way we could stay in touch with family, with daily photos (and the most fun, videos!) that gave them a sense of seeing other cultures in a new way.
A side note. Finding a good travel partner is such a blessing. To travel with someone who has the same priorities as you (ours were food, art/photography and wine) makes the pleasure of it all even greater. Robert and I were wanting to explore every day...finding it hard to sleep, not wanting to waste a minute of unknown territory. Simpatico.
