Whatsapp: my favorite app

Here I am at JFK, waiting for my flight to Bangkok, Thailand with a layover in Frankfurt, Germany.  This is just the beginning of a very busy summer to different places around the world; some new and some  familiar. 

One would think I am escaping my life in New York and that my family and friends here don’t matter to me. Quite the opposite!! Anyone who knows me, knows that I love my family and friends here at home, and that I would do anything for them. Yet, I also love my friends and family who are abroad as well. So, how does someone like myself keep in touch with everyone?.. 

Personally, I am a HUGE fan of an app called Whatsapp. Have you heard of it? It’s basically an app that is known for texting, yet it does so much more!! You can send:

Text messages
Voice messages

And... ALL FOR FREE!! What you really need is wifi, which is becoming easier to find every time I travel out. The app costs .99$ and LITERALLY, worth every penny. 

In conclusion (I feel like I am writing a persuasive essay), though it is difficult when I have to say my goodbyes either to those back home or to places I’ve recently visited, with Whatsapp, I know I can keep in touch with my friends and family in the States, The Dominican Republic, Brazil, Switzerland, Germany, Norway, Chile, Spain and more. With this app, I am able to live my life wherever I am and with my loved ones wherever they are :)

 How do you keep in touch with your loved ones? 

Which apps do you favor?


  1. Wow lady on a plane, you are having a busy summer. I like hey tell, it sounds a lot the same

  2. Hello. The distance from the family should not limit the desire to discover new places in the world. The various apps are a great help. Hello lady. If you come in Italy nor let me know, ciao.

    1. Wow, I would love to make it to Italy!! If I do, I will ;)

  3. Darling, I have an award for you. Check my blog for details.

  4. I love instagram. It's connected to my Facebook and twitter accounts so I am updating everyone visually with a little story attached!

    Have a great trip! Can't wait to see/read about it!

    1. Love that... I have to admit, I don't use instagram as much as I should.. My friends use all the time. I need to catch on this new trend ;)

  5. My phone isn't "smart" enough for WhatsApp, but my sister LOVES it! Several of my friends have started using it as well... basically it's texting but free if you've got a wifi connection, right? Fun!

    Bon voyage!!! Sounds like a busy summer ahead! You mentioned on my Blog you'll be in Spain?! Where? When?

    Buen viaje!!!!
