Wereckon it’s time to go unplugged. No, not the awesome MTV acoustic show, but you know, get away from the rolling politics shizz blowing up your phone right now. Consciously ditch the Wi-Fi. Break the digital shackles that have us craning our necks and our thumbs and fingers dancing a merry frenzy over a screen. Innocent smoothies don’t just care about your body, they’re all about your mind as well. They’ve planned an off-the-grid festival in ‘a magical forest location outside London, free from technology…’ Hmmm. Not London? We reckon we could do that.
One part of the festival is its speakers (no TED on your phone here), and one of them is adventurer Alastair Humphreys, who runs ‘micro adventures’ – the ideal opportunity to dash away from work for an evening and do cool, basic bare thrills kinda stuff like star gazing, foraging and beers round a camp fire.
It looks truly awesome, and would be great for individuals, but even better in a work group on a back to nature jolly. Mr Humphreys isn’t just some crackpot outdoorsy type either; man’s got kudos from many quarters. Even if you’re vaguely interested, check it out and tell somebody else… if you can get them of their phone.
