I searched and searched... but it was nowhere to be found... i left it on my desk! No problem (i naively thought...), i will come by the office tomorrow to collect that and a third folder i forgot. On saturday, much to my unhappiness i go up the hill just to find the office in total lock down without a single living soul to open the door.
So... no blackberry! No email in my pocket, no what's app, no texting for free... Nada!
I get home write some angry emails, mobilize the IT department to make sure i have a phone at least when i land in New Delhi and made my way to the airport.
Now, sitting at the lounge in Dubai, i can't help but notice how less stressful it is to travel without the email in your pocket. People know i am unavailable, there is no pressure to answer them.
I have only my old Nokia, which miraculously has roaming and enough money to send a couple of texts but that's it.
It feels like I am travelling the old fashion way. Not bad at all!
