Everyone needs a vacation, and this week, I’m packing my bags and leaving the city for a week to spend some time with my family. Even though I’ll be out of the office and away from my computer, I plan to take Skype with me so I can stay connected with my friends and family members who will not be able to be there with me.
First stop on my vacation is my cousin’s wedding, which is bound to be a good time. Unfortunately, not all my family members can make it to the wedding. However, with Skype video calling on my iPhone, I’ll be able to show my aunt in California what the wedding festivities are like in real-time. Since I have my phone with me no matter where I am, she will be able to see everything from the bridal party preparing to my cousin walking down the aisle. And, if I find out that there are other family members who cannot make it, I can easily bring along my MacBook and use Skype Group Video Calling to include up to ten people on one call. I’m sure my cousin will be excited to find out how many virtual guests are in attendance!
After the wedding festivities, I plan to spend plenty of time relaxing on the beach with my family and friends. Of course, I’ll make sure my iPhone is with me at all times, so I can video and voice call, as well as IM, my friends while I’m away from home.
Are you going on any summer vacations? If so, how do you plan to bring Skype along for the ride? Leave a comment and let us know.
