Late Tuesday afternoon we returned from a week of vacation in Switzerland. It was really nice to get a way for a while and because Camilla’s sister and boyfriend, who we were visiting, did not have internet at home it was a week without a computer and without access to the net.

It was nice to not have to check the email, bloglines and the news sites every day though it left me feeling a bit disconnected. I missed the iPhone launch in the US and the terror scare in London, and who knows what else I missed. Still time off is needed to be able to handle the steadily increasing information flow.

So far the catching up is proceeding slowly, it feels like new items are appearing in bloglines faster than I manage to go through the old ones but I hope that I am at least making some small progress.
