It’s probably fair to say that most people – certainly most business professionals – bring their mobile phones and (probably) laptops with them when on vacation or off on a holiday.

The thought of being completely isolated from the internet is less of a holiday, and more of a prison sentence. And while beaches are breathtaking and vacation towns are picturesque, the lack of a reliable 3G connection – or anything resembling free wifi – can drive a person nuts!

What about you? Are holidays (note: not business trips) literally about getting away from it all, or are some things like Twitter still super-important? Hit the comments to let us know!
