When you are traveling abroad, it is definitely great to stay in touch with the people who care about you. My favorite way to tell my mother I'm still alive is by e-mail. I have T-mobile, and for 20 dollars extra month, I can have all unlimited texting and e-mailing from the said country that I'm going to. Just call your provider and see what their deal is. If you're going to be gone for an extended period of time, get a cell phone there. You can easily buy chips for each individual country and you can use that cell phone for years. It seems to be quiet convenient and relatively affordable. Also, go online. Internet cafes ubiquitous. You can also keep in touch by your myspace, your facebook. You can track your travel route with, sites like that where you can actually map out where you're going and send pictures to people. Also, I say keep a little notepad around with you. If you meet people, you want to get their e-mail address or carry a business card. You might want to meet them in Germany or have dinner with that night. Just be able to e-mail and keep in touch.
