How to Stay Connected with Family While You Travel Around the World
August 26, 2012
How do you stay in touch with family and friends around the world? It's easier than ever today, thanks to tech and doesn't cost anything. Here you see our 11 year old having a Skype video conversation in Asia with her Grandma in California. She is using the webcam to give her a tour of her imaginary world from a fancy but free minimalist dollhouse made from a thrown out cardboard box.
She gave a similar tour to her best friends in Spain as well as all her friends here in person. I don't think we could have done these last 7 years of non-stop world travel without the tech available today and most importantly free webcam calls.
We don't feel so far away because of tech and keep our relationships up this way. Mozart was able to share losing all her baby teeth around the world from her first missing tooth in France. She shares her art work, winning a trophy, introduces new friends, plays violin or piano and more with her Grandmother on a regular basis. It's helped us deal with mourning on the road with deaths from both sides and staying connected during those trying times.
