Traveling Overseas and Looking at Calling Cards

Posted on June 23, 2008 @ 11:00 am

My son will be traveling overseas in a few short weeks for his summer holiday.  He has worked for the past couple of years now and put every penny away so that he would have this opportunity.  It has been great to watch him learn how to save for something that he truly wants, and now we will get to see him finally attain his goal.

But the one thing that we want while he is over there is for him to have a way to contact us.  We had thought that he could just call us on his cell phone, but once we learned how much he would have to pay for the long distance and the roaming minutes, it was out of the question.

So, we decided to see if we could find him some cheap calling cards to take with him.  Specifically, we were looking for international calling cards that would still be cheap enough that he could call us everyday and let us know how things were going.

We found some online and they will be here before he goes on his trip.  It will be sad to see him go, but we are so happy for him – we’ll just miss him a lot while he is gone.
