International Calls

The Kaardal-Olson family is a worldwide family, which makes getting in contact with each other a little complicated.

Sure e-mail, instant messaging and Facebook make it easier to get in contact with each other, but let's face it, sometimes you just need to talk to someone in person. With family members in Canada, the U.S.A. and Norway, making a phone call can be an expensive choice to make.

Instead of limiting yourself to a certain amount of talk time, or just giving up on the idea of calling anyone all together, try a few of these free internet services that allow you to speak with anyone internationally for free.

Skype -

Skype is voice over internet program that allows people to talk and video conference online. Skype includes some useful features like instant messaging and voice mail.  The program also allows you to create a contact list, so once you have added a person to your contact list you will not need to remember their account information.

You can connect with me on Skype at wade.kaardal.

Google Talk -

Google talk is similar to Skype and offers many of the same features. What's nice about Googe Talk is that if you already use Gmail your contacts and other information will already be added to Google Talk.
