I've been out of the country on an Eastern Caribbean cruise with my family for over a week - just got back yesterday. We only purchased 100 MB of internet data while out to attend to a few urgent items via email, but aside from that, I've had zero internet or phone access.
Aside from the above, my takeaway from my vacation was an appreciation for my daily life back at home, and my desire to become even more "minimal" with my routines, processes, and of course possessions.
For a family of four, all we took for this trip were 1 full size carry on and 3 half-size carry ons. Living extremely efficiently for over a week made me realize that I still have a lot of room for streamlining in my closet and my personal care processes.
