Staying in Touch with Family Abroad through Nixplay

* This is a collaborative post.

If you are a regular reader you know I am originally from NY. All of my family live in the US & I have been living in the beautiful West of Ireland for the past 11 years. When I first moved here it was tricky to stay in touch. We didn’t have wifi & smartphones weren’t out yet (shocking – I know!). I used to go to a computer cafe to send emails! That feels like ancient history now.


Since technology has boomed over the past 7 years staying in touch has become much easier. We have wifi in the house & smartphones which allow me to send texts & emails easily to my friends & family abroad. Honestly, I take staying in touch easily for granted now!
