Study Abroad

Guest post by Jewel Cole

My sister has spent the last semester studying abroad, and we have had a hard time keeping in touch. As my husband and I live in a very rural location, we actually don’t have an internet service provider. The only option for us to talk is via the phone, and the international calling rates are getting astronomical. I can’t face not talking to her regularly, as she’s my best friend, so my husband’s been doing his best to find a solution. Recently, at the advice of a coworker, he checked out internet salina. As it turns out, we do have an option for internet—satellite internet. It’s ideal for people in our situation. My husband is going to call tomorrow to get us set up, and I cannot wait to be able to email my sister as much as I want! I know we’ll probably email back and forth every day, and she’ll also be able to send me pictures of her living it up in Europe this way. It’s the perfect solution to our problem. And the best part? She’ll be home soon, but we’ll still be able to email as much as we want.

Awesome! My family lives far away, and we use Skype to keep in touch. It's a free download, and we can actually see and talk over the internet (as long as you have a webcam). It really makes it feel like we are together.

I asked all of my kids whether or not they would like to study abroad, and they all answered negatively. They all like staying at home.
