I am going to Disney World on vacation this summer! Isnít that great? I canít wait; two full weeks of fun in the sun, amusement park rides, and swimming. Iím going to really miss writing to my e-Buddy though. I wish there was a way that I could stay connected while Iím on my vacation. Any suggestions?

Dear Dancing in Disney,
Itís great to hear that even though youíll be on vacation, you want to still write to your e-Buddy. There are a number of things you can do, and they all depend on where you are vacationing. Some hotels have a business center with computers that have Internet access. There is usually a fee associated with this, so make sure you get permission before doing so. There are also computers on cruise ships. I was able to email my e-Buddy all the way from the Bahamas! You could also find a local library and use one of the computers there. If youíre going to visit friends or family, call ahead and see if they have a computer you can use while you are there. If there is no way you can write while youíre gone, thatís ok. Everyone goes on vacation. Just make sure to write to your e-Buddy before you leave, and let them know how long you will be gone, so they will not worry when they donít hear from you. Have fun on your vacation and donít get too much sun! ?
