Drinking Off the Grid

bigstock-Bottle-Of-Wine-2403497.jpgIsn't it funny how attached we can get to digital technology? I'm just about to head out of town to spend a few days with some good friends in a beach house that is officially in the middle of nowhere, Mexico. There's no phone, no internet, and no cell phone coverage at this little beach escape. And I will admit to currently operating under a certain level of anxiety about the whole thing. I'm used to being able to check in on my business, and on my blog whenever I want, and it's a little nerve wracking to not be able to do so.

But I'm sure I'll get over it, as I always do. I am, after all, bringing 18 bottles of wine, which should help. And twelve of them are pink.

Once I get over my net withdrawal, I'll be sitting on the beach with a nice bottle of Loire rosé and some freshly made guacamole watching the waves lap at my sandals. That's bound to be good for me, right?

So you'll have to do without my wine blatherings for a few days while I unplug. On my return I may have some insights into the merits of rosé and various Mexican dishes.

But at the very least I'll have lots more coverage from my trip to New Zealand to offer.

See you in a few days!
