AWAY WE GO

Elle (Canada) - - Travel - christina reynolds

Whether you find your­self trav­el­ling on a plane, on a train or in the back seat of a car this hol­i­day sea­son, here’s a lit­tle chal­lenge: Don’t con­nect to the Wi-Fi, and don’t turn on a screen. In­stead, swap out your smart­phone for an old­fash­ioned deck of cards. Find a part­ner and start a real-world con­ver­sa­tion over a game of gin rummy, hearts or war. This set of Trav­eller’s Play­ing Cards ($22.50, at Herb Lester, herblester.com) might even give you some convo starters thanks to the tri­lin­gual travel phrases printed on each card. Just be sure to re­sist the urge to con­nect when the cards marked “Do you have wifi?” and “Where can I charge my phone?” are dealt.
