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:
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?
