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
Photos
Videos

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?

  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.

  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!!!!
