What do you do when you have no internet or limited access to the internet?

Right now I'm on vacation and I have a very limited access to the internet. Also I'm on the country side with no real activities like going to the cinema or gym or going for a coffee.

So my wisdom is are you in such situations and if yes what do you do in that time?

All sorts of things, though in a vacation-like setting I guess exploring and watching the wildlife when the weather is good, and puzzling the staff with my odd habit of chatting with them when the weather is bad will do. Sometimes I hear some really interesting stories.

Lie on the grass and watch the sky. Close your eyes and listen to the sea or trees.
Ride a bike. Read books*. Make some pictures.

Thing looks differently if you have kids. If you do, you prevent then from killing themselves ;) and you have no time to think about internet.

*actually that's not something I do. I can't read books, at least not usually. As a ADD, it's difficult for me. I could read three at the same time, but not one ;)

Yeah, I remember a few years ago when there was no roaming and the internet was even slower on mobile. I would just download a lot of movies and youtube videos and take them with me ;)

Also, I would listen to my backlog of podcasts.

Holidays are holidays! Chill out with some buzz and do anything that is not connected to work! Go for a walk, meet locals, read! :D
Just not work so you can properly chill :)
