Keep in Touch While Traveling with Skype This Summer

5 Flares 5 Flares ×

This summer is flying by and we are busy playing, having fun and planning our big summer vacation. While we are usually pretty busy all year, I find that summer tends to be the time where connecting with friends and family is hardest. There is just so much going on that it is easy to forget to call …. and visits can be hard to plan.

Thankfully, there is Skype.

I have been telling you all about how Skype is making my life easier with the text message, group chat and cellphone calling abilities {which I have used numerous times to find my cell phone!}. Now I am getting ready to use it while on vacation to chat with my pet sitter!

I am super excited that I will be able to see my furry babies while we are so far away. This will be the longest that they have been away from me, and it will be great for both of us to be able to see each other. Or at least for me to talk to them through the computer and see their confused faces (which I am sure is most likely going to be the outcome). But it will also be nice to chat with my pet sitter this way. If she has any question she can ask me “face to face” instead of just trying to explain over the phone.

Jay and I have also been talking about limiting cell phone talk (and use) time while we are on vacation. It is nice to unplug sometimes, yet – I don’t want to be totally disconnected from everyone at home. Skype gives me some piece of mind – callers can leave me a message, send me an instant message or connect with me right away if I am online. This lets me uphold the “no cell phone” rule while still having a way to connect with those that may need me.

Are you going on vacation this summer? Will you use Skype while you away?
