Staying in Touch with Home while on the Road

This week finds me in New York and away from my family–twice.  NYC for three days, home for three days, and then back to NYC again.  Why didn’t I just stay put for the whole week?  (Indeed, after multiple travel delays, I’ve been asking myself the same question…)

However, I wanted to see my family.  Staying in touch on the road is always a challenge.  And so, I was glad to run across this article–albeit a very short one–from About.com with tips on communicating with family members while traveling. As How to Stay in Touch with Family explains, tech tools like Skype and webcams make it a lot easier to feel connected.

One international lawyer supposedly raced back to her hotel every night to read her children bedtime stories via webcam. A perfect solution it is not, but it certainly helps.
