Attention, vacationers! Looking to escape the digital chaos of everyday life? Well, look no further than the island of Ulko-Tammio, where they have taken the “no phones” policy to a whole new level. This summer, they are encouraging tourists to keep their mobiles locked away, allowing them to disconnect from social media and immerse themselves in the tranquility of nature. It’s like a digital detox retreat, but with a beach! Terhi Mustonen, the psychologist at the Sosped Foundation, believes that people aren’t meant to be glued to screens all the time. So, if you’re ready to trade in your virtual likes for real-life experiences, pack your bags, leave your phone behind, and embark on an adventure where the only tweets you’ll hear are from the birds. Ulko-Tammio awaits, where the signal for connection is replaced with the sound of waves crashing and the joy of being truly present in the moment.
