I spent the last seven days without internet access; mobile phone coverage was almost intermittent and of course, Wi-Fi, simply didn’t exist. Moreover cash machines were few and far between.
Yes I was on holiday. What struck me was that this lack of basic networking and comms was in the south of France, a place called Ansouis, just 45 minutes’ drive from Marseille.
Well that’s my excuse for not updating the blog this last week. But I have to say, it is amazing how quickly we revert to the simpler life: fine food, wonderful wine and good-old fashioned cash.
