This Island in Finland is Soon to Be a Phone-Free Zone 📵

We must admit we are for sure on our phones way too much, especially when we go on our travels, did it even happen if it's not on the gram?📸

What would you do if you were asked to stay off your phone while visiting another country, would you be able to do it?

Finland is introducing the world’s first phone-free tourist island!😱 If you're heading to Ulko-Tammio, you will be asked to keep your mobile phone and smart devices in your pocket.

“We encourage visitors to put their phones away and to focus their senses on nature rather than on their phones,” said Joel Heino, from Parks and Wildlife Finland. “This is a great initiative that could be implemented in other nature and recreational destinations, too.”

Don't worry though mateys, it is voluntary, and you can use your phone if you really want to, the island has a fully functioning mobile network.📱

Finland was voted the world's happiest country for the sixth year running according to Schengenvisa, so maybe it's on to something.😊
