Even a social media queen needs a break from social media!
One thing that KoKo had to get used to was the country’s strict rules regarding technology!
According to the tall diva:
“Cuba is a beautiful country. The hospitality and kindness of the Cuban people even inspired me to learn Spanish again! But, one thing that got a little getting used to was the pace of their technology. We had WiFi in our hotel, but if too many people were on it, it kicked you off. We were all feening to get online, but as soon as someone else would connect to it, I’d get kicked off, LOL.”
A Kardashian gal without Internet?! Sounds like a recipe for disaster!
What made things worse was that the entire K family couldn’t use Snapchat!
“And social media is monitored by the government! Snapchat isn’t allowed. Everything you post using WiFi has to be approved. They can even remove posts from your Instagram page. Snapchat is so instantaneous that it would be impossible for them to monitor so it’s not even allowed.”
However, not having access to technology was actually a blessing in disguise. The 32-year-old enjoyed not having her phone on her 24/7!
“I wasn’t big on emailing while I was out there and I have to admit it was really refreshing not to have my phone glued to me. It was nice to call in to check in with people instead of text. I checked in on my house (I’m in the middle of some home improvements), called my business manager and made sure [my dog] Gabbana was doing OK.”
Overall, Miz Kardashian learned to live life in the present!
“That week, I learned nothing is really that urgent or dire. Normally if I don’t have my phone, I feel like I’m disconnected, but Cuba taught me to enjoy the present without distraction. Such a good lesson!”
Sometimes we all need to disconnect to truly appreciate our surroundings!
