As someone who has to travel a lot for work, it is really nice to still be able to have some face time with my friends and family. I have come to love love LOVE being able to Skype with everyone back home. Plus the bonus of being free (if you call Skype to Skype) is an awesome bonus!Whenever I travel overseas I use Skype to call businesses back home when I need to, and to call family members on their phones if need be. It is a lot cheaper than using my cell phone with an international plan since I don’t use the phone minutes a whole lot.
It makes a HUGE different to be able to talk to the ones I love and see! them too while we chat. I really like being able to video chat, and it helps make the distance. I think that the video really does make a difference; talking on the phone is great but being able to see each other really makes a difference. On my first trip overseas I wasn’t able to use video chat, and the time apart really dragged on. But on more recent trips we’ve used video, and I love it. I feel like a broken record, but it is super awesome!
