How do I stay in touch with my parents or friends back home?
Smartphones are the preferred method of communication between you and your parents or friends, and please note that bringing laptop computers is not allowed (except for on our Photography trips). Time will be given to the group to be able to connect to WiFi at our hotels or other WiFi zones.
You are allowed to bring cell phones, but please note that they to be turned on outside the hotel room for emergencies and taking photos. This is important so that you can be focused on the trip and not on texting your friends back home. You can call/text your friends or parents when you’re back in your hotel room.
