We travel as a family quite often. Since both my husband and I work for ourselves, it is easy for us to pick up and go whenever we want. Skype helps keep us connected while on the go!
One of the features of Skype that we use the most is through my cell phone. My daughter loves to talk to Grandma several times a week, and thanks to Skype, she is still able to “see” Grandma even though she lives several hours away.
This summer, I have gotten the chance to travel for work and used Skype to call back and tak to my daughter and husband. It is rough the first time you have to leave your child and be away, but thankfully Skype helped us communicate back and forth several times for no additional cost! It was a great relief for me as a mom to be able to talk to my child and physically see that she is okay and having fun while I’m not home.
Skype Group Video Calling is awesome to use with multiple family members! For instance, we are traveling for my daughter’s birthday this year. I am planning on setting up a group video call between us, her grandparents, and some aunts and cousins so everyone can see her open her presents all at the same time! It is nice to have a service with so many free features (and affordable premium features) to assist us in sharing life events like we never could in the past.
Check out this infographic about moms who combine summer travel and technology!
I think it is amazing that 92% of moms love to be able to communicate with family and friends via technology! I consider myself a tech mom and would be lost without the convenience that it provides to myself and my family.
How do you stay connected to your family during summer travel and when you are on the go?
Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Skype. I received Skype credits to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participadfting.
