I FLATTENED MY over-the-air data allowance after a week in England and that meant poring over brochures for travel information.
I plan to write and talk later about how I switched off the information normally dripping into my phone but for now I'm fascinated how we made our way around with paper brochures and signage. One excursion led to an afternoon with the White Rabbit (in the photo).
The most significant thing for me is the realisation that we culled plans from three sources. The grandparents favoured the brochures. Their grandchildren often had picked up inside information from fellow holiday makers their age out in the meadow. And I preferred sneaking a peek at TripAdvisor, Foursquare and BestOfDorset when I had a WiFi signal.
On the day we found an Adventureland, we also found free access to the aircraft museum across the parking lot. And everyone left happy.
