Going on Summer Vacation? Stay Connected with Friends and Family While You Are Away
Have you ever wondered when is the start of summer?
Summer usually begins once the sun has reached its position northernmost from the equator. In the temperate regions, the sun is positioned higher in the sky during the day, and the rays from the sun strike the Earth in a more direct angle, which creates the warming that we call summer. The day of the year that has the highest number of sunlight hours is known as the summer solstice.

Traveling Tip: Where ever you go for your summer vacation, you can stay connected with your family and friends without having to incur ridiculous phone charges, roaming charges, or connection charges by simply just using a calling card.
