We’re home from our week unplugged. Last week we had an amazing trip to New Harbor, ME. We spent the whole week unplugged….yes really! We had no WIFI, no cable not even a TV. Cell service was almost nonexistent as well. We were truly, off the grid. I have to say, going into this trip I was almost nervous, wondering how the kids would do without their electronics for the week. But to my surprise they did great. Serioulsy, I’m not even kidding.
The beginning of the week was almost bliss like. The kids were out exploring the new surroundings, soaking up all the nature. I was literally calling them in at sunset. Ofcourse, it was also nice that there was a family staying in the cabin next door with children close in age. So the kids all quickly made friends. We also read books, did a bit of sightseeing and even a little shopping in the little town over. Thursday it rained….like monsoon style rain. So we decided to surprise the kids with a trip to the movies. We took them to see Jurassic World. Alright, so I guess we weren’t totally unplugged, but honestly there really wasn’t much else to do on that kind of a day plus it was a nice break for the kids too.
The end of the week was gorgeous and we again all spent our last days outside soaking up the sun and enjoying the amazing surroundings. Honestly, when it was time to go, we were all sad to leave, because it was one of the best vacations we have ever had as a family. We spent real quality time together and really relaxed and reconnected. For that reason, we are already booking and planning our return trip next year.
Without further ado, here is just a tiny peek and some of the beautiful suroundings we had the pleasure of enjoying. And if you have been thinking of booking an unplugged vacation for your family, I say DO IT!!! You won’t regret it. The memories we made during our week unplugged were priceless and ones I know we will hold on to fondly for years to come.
