Email is such an easy way to chat and keep in touch, you can send an email anytime even when the person you are sending it to is away. It is so easy to access email today, for those who don't have access at home or work you can find an internet cafe in most towns. If not try the local library they are normally a good place to get on the internet
What a fab idea IM's are, it makes me think my sister is just down the road not the other side of the world. We chat all the time in this manner, normally early evening while she is on her lunch at work. Getting an internet passport is easy, I use hotmail ......
Skype is a little program for making free calls over the internet to anyone else who also has Skype. It’s free and easy to download and use, and works with most computers. And if you want to call someone without skype you can do that too. For a small fee with SkypeOut, you can use Skype to call landlines and mobiles and chat all over the world.

Internet/Webcam & Audio
Once we were settled and had our own pad we invested in a web cam and broadband which makes speaking with the folks back home even better. My youngest niece saw me on the web cam for the first time a few weeks ago. Her little face was a picture, she was so excited so see & hear Auntie Shazza.

Hey lets not forget putting pen to paper, that's what we did before the internet, do you remember? A lot can be done over the internet now including sending electronic cards and gift vouchers. It is always nice though to get that card or letter through the post
For those heavier parcels then you can always send them by sea. The cost will be a lot less but they will take ages to get there. Be sure to post of in plenty of time for it to reach its destination in time. Oh and don't do what Mum did and send chocolate by sea. I was so excited to receive a box of Thornton Chocolates but by the time they arrived they where fit only for the bin.
