Living in the 21st century carries with itself a long list of advances in the science, technologies and in general in any aspect in our life. Although all that development ideally is supposed to bring us better conditions and facilitated and comfortable lifestyle, as anything they have their negative aspects.
New technologies, Social Media and Internet have brought a lot to the development of businesses. However, one’s privacy has gone to the past. If you think of all the cameras you have around yourself, all the messages you send via your smart phone or computer, phone calls, photos you keep in the “Cloud”… well they can be easily reached by anyone with some good IT knowledge. And what is more, we decide to provide all that information consciously. Unfortunately even when we go on vacation technology and internet come along and never leave us. We are always reachable and we can always receive that work email which will keep our brain thinking of things we try to avoid during vacation. But dedication and business orientated people hardly escape completely and have the will to cut the wire for a week and properly get that needed relaxation.
Although, nowadays yachts are hi-tech spots and have Satellite Internet, TV and phone reception, etc. , yachts of any type are the perfect excuse to disconnect from the outside world and free your mind. After all, you are at sea and you are “allowed” to be disconnected. Being on board is a great opportunity to get closer to nature indulged in luxury. Go for some swimming, snorkeling, get on a jet-ski, soak up the sun or maybe just contemplate the stunning views in front of you. Forget about that picture moment and keep the picture in your head.
Look through your eyes, not your device. Whether you own or charter a yacht-think of the real and most valuable reason of being on board her. Is it showing off status, is it for the sake of doing the regular things like watching TV and working, you usually do on land, but on board, or is it a way to escape – be away from the crowd, connections and stress. Yachting offers relaxation. Take advantage of it – get on board and escape completely, you have the perfect excuse to say “I didn’t have reception” whether that would be in front of someone else or just in front of yourself.
