+Michael Ginsburg No. I know Dr Tickell, He's very passionate about health and helping people. I think what he speaks is the truth and a very big current health problem. Sure he wants to promote his business because it's something that can actually help people stay safer. I don't think there is anything dodgy or scammy about that. It's not a scare tactic, he's presenting his experience and the truth.

Love unplugging. Do you?
 
Do you get tired of constantly being switched onto your devices? 

It's important that we take time to disconnect so we can reconnect. We share our experience of unplugging in +Outback Queensland  and the value it gave to our family memories

#lpkids   #familytravel   #travel   #travelwithkids   #familyadventures   #outbackqueensland   #queensland  
Going unplugged when you travel especially with kids is vital to reconnect. We discovered the Outback Queensland is a great place to unplug and create memories.
