Backpacking through Australia
Two years ago, I went backpacking through Australia. I stayed in the mountains with a group of other college students.
While camping, we had very little access to electricity. I was able to be removed from cell phones, television, e-mail, and other forms of technology that rule our everyday lives. It was the most relaxing experience of my life. I was able to actually "hear" myself think!
This trip showed me the importance of taking "alone" time to relax and shut myself off from the rest of the world.
