Gadgets and the Internet have made our lives easier, but sometimes it can be hard to ‘disconnect’. While it improves productivity and expands opportunities for everyone, it can also serve as a distraction and even a source of stress and anxiety. Completely abandoning the digital life is impossible for many, but if you wish to unplug just for a bit, a digital detox holiday might be the solution. Here are a few destinations that can help you get away from apps and notifications…
Little River PurePod, New Zealand
Located less than an hour drive from Christchurch, the pod is surrounded by rich natural bush and beautiful flora and fauna. The glass cabins does not only have shower, toilet and a kitchen, but it also allows you to see 360-degree views of the nature and enjoy the starry sky at night – you get to have the best of both worlds!
