Getting homesick while on vacation can be a bummer, but there’s technology available to help get through it.

Homesickness Apps to Help While You’re on Vacation

Functional Apps

ZOOM

Hop on a Zoom call to see what’s going on back home. From family to friends and everyone in between, it’s easier now to connect with your community via wifi than before when it was only with collect calls.

RING

The Ring app lets you see, hear and speak to anyone on your property from anywhere. If you’re thinking about security for your front door, pick up the Ring camera from your local store (or amazon) before heading on vacation and you’ll be able to see what’s going on at home.

VOXER

When we’re on vacation, we tend to have family and friends look after our pet. If everyone is busy or we need to get help, there are pet sitters that will be able to look after your pets without having to board them. The easiest way is through the use of an app like Voxer, which allows the pet sitter to upload photos, videos and text/voice messages to an account and then when you’re attached to a wifi signal…everything gets delivered.

We absolutely fell in love with this app while on a Disney World vacation, because we’d sit down for a meal and have a slew of cat photos from our pet sitter just waiting for us. Definitely worth checking out!

INSTAGRAM

You’re going to be on it anyway, so why not follow a few local creators? If you’re afraid of being too homesick…follow dog accounts from your neighbourhood!

Nothing will take you away from a vacation and put back in reality than a couple swipes on Facebook.
