How to keep in touch when traveling or living abroad

Happy Travel Tuesday!

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Travel Tuesday post, but it’s time that I revive the series… and I’m doing so with a VIDEO!

During my travels and time as an expat, I’ve learned the ins and outs of being able to keep in touch with family and friends back at home without spending a fortune. So whether you’ll be traveling abroad for a few weeks or moving to a new country, watch this video for my tips on how to keep in touch with everyone back at home.

Do you have any other tips for keeping in touch while being abroad? Share your knowledge in the comments.

    Hi Jess,
    Stumbled upon your blog while prepping for my upcoming move to London, and I love your writing style and enthusiasm! Thanks for this post–these tips are really helpful. Thinking about starting a blog of my own once I get out there…thanks for the inspiration and keep up the good work 🙂

      Hi Marissa, thanks so much for all of the kind words and for reading my blog/watching my video! How exciting that you’re moving over here soon. I would highly recommend starting a blog because not only is it a great way to keep everyone at home up to do (as I said in the video) you’ll meet so many amazing people in London through blogging (and probably get to do some cool things as well). Let me know when you get over here and I’ll let you know when there’s an upcoming blogger/expat event, and of course, let me know if you have any questions before you get over here.
