Technology and Travel: How One Couple Bridges a 6900-Mile Gap to Stay in Touch With Their Children
What do you do when you have four adult children living in four different time zones, spread across nearly 6,900 miles? You travel, of course!
My mom's twin sister, my Aunt Sandy, and her husband, my Uncle Michael, are just such a couple. Their oldest son, the student, along with his wife and their daughter, live in Glasgow, Scotland. Their only daughter, a secretary for a lawyer, and son-in-law, and their daughter live in Wyoming. Their police officer son and his wife and daughter live in West Virginia. And their "baby" the Marine, along with his wife and their son, have been in Hawaii for the last few years. Keeping up with kids and grand kids presents challenges, but it also affords them (currently) a dozen reasons to travel across the country and even across the pond.
Curious about their recent travels, I asked Aunt Sandy some questions about those opportunities and obstacles.
