My aunt is here for a vacation. She isn’t with her family though because the ticket to our country from theirs is so expensive. She is pretty worried although she has prepared everything for them while she’s away. Good thing internet video conferencing exists though! Now they still get in touch with going online on their net books, laptops and iOS gadgets. It’s definitely helpful, it is even with dad who is in Thailand and our grandma who is in US (she was with my aunt before she got here).
This makes technology really helpful for those who are from each other.
