Living in a different country than your family can be a little tough. I can testify to that, as I have done so for nearly a decade. Everyone knows that maintaining long-distance relationships is hard work, but, when it comes to your family, it's essential. Finding the balance between keeping in touch and not speaking so much that you feel homesick and become totally dependent on your fam is tricky but, guys, I have lots of tips for staying in touch with family who live in a different country.
If you have ever felt homesickness, you know that dull ache. That longing to be able to just nip over to a family member's house within an hour or less and have that replenishing familial love you need. However, what I always remember is the fact that we are so lucky to be in this digital age. An age when you can do video calls, send photos in an instant, message each other 24/7, and, of course, travel with relative ease.
As with most things in life, you have to put the work in to get it back in return. With these tips, you can make sure that you and your family maintain a great relationship.
