Continuing on my theme of Skype posts this summer (I’m acting as a Skype Ambassador), I wanted to talk today about Summer Travel and the ways Skype can help you when you are on the road.
Since we’ve been on a road a ton this summer, Skype has gotten good use! We just returned from 3 weeks out of town and the first week is worth the biggest mention – we were in Mexico! Obviously using my cell to make calls home wasn’t an option (not an affordable one anyway) but with Wifi at our resort, we weren’t out of touch at all! I Skyped several times with my parents in Ohio and it was wonderful to be able to show them our resort, the room and our tanned and happy faces!
Sometimes I use modern technology and think how lucky we are – and using Skype while I was in Mexico was one of them! It was like we weren’t gone at all (with the added bonus being we could hang up and I could walk poolside and get myself a margarita!)
Mom Central surveyed over 1,200 Moms on their use of modern technology and here were the results (click to make it bigger!):
What I want to know is who are those 5% of Moms who don’t think technology makes their life easier? Ha! But seriously, it would be such a shame to not use Skype and understand what an amazing software and piece of technology it is that it can allow you to commnicate with loved ones from far away!
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 participating.
