  1. Texting and calling. Newsflash: your phone can be used for more than the internet! You can text and call your family and friends so that you can be sure that you are safe and staying in touch through your whole trip. Make sure that you switch on roaming if you are going overseas, you don't want to end up with a huge bunch of charges that are far more than you budgeted or bargained for. 

  2. Social media. Are you a Facebook fan or a Twitter try-hard? Either way, social media is a great way to keep connected with everyone you want to talk to while you’re away. You can upload pictures, share your location and ensure that you are able to be followed if you need to be. So many people create specific travel social media accounts so that others can keep up with their movements.

  3. A blog. Are you planning to document your trip? You can do it in the form of a vlog or a blog! Being online at different wi-fi spots will help you to post the blogs along your way. You’ll be able to use it like a diary and whether you share it or not is completely up to you.

  4. Video chat. Skype, FaceTime and WhatsApp will all allow you to get in touch with a little face to face contact with your friends and family at home. It’s really the closest thing that you'll get to time face to face before you get home. They’re also free apps, and you can spend as long as you want chatting at home.

Travelling is fun but it can be pretty lonely. You don't have to be alone if you don't want to, though, not when there are plenty of ways that you can keep in touch with people back home. You should think about doing this and opting for a tracker on your phone for a parent or best friend to have a link to.
