Abbi and Ilana do their fair share of video chatting and catching up via text, but even these young, tech-savvy New Yorkers need to disconnect every once in a while. Take a few tips from the gals and learn how to unplug from the Matrix.
GO AU NATURAL
En route to a dog wedding (yep!) in Central Park, the girls decide to ditch their phones and use old-school navigation (i.e., intuition). Reconnecting with nature may not always be pretty, but it’s what our foremothers did.
FIND AN URBAN OASIS
After renting out their apartments to tourists on B&B-NYC, Abbi and Ilana get creative while looking for a spot to crash. The two eventually set up camp on Ilana’s roof, proving that if even New York City, you can go off the grid — If you’re lucky enough to get low wind conditions.
SOCIALIZE THE WAY HUMANS ARE MEANT TO
Instead of on online following, opt for the real thing. Trapped indoors during a hurricane, the girls and their friends bond over a game of Never Have I Ever. When you’re with the right people, you don’t need electricity to have a good time.
DATE IN PERSON
Sliding into a crush’s DMs may work for some, but not everyone spits their best game over the web. After a few cracks at Facebook flirting, the girls decide to try IRL face time with potential hookups. After all, the internet is so 90s.
