Today’s guest post is used with permission from Monte Celia Parker – Caio, Monte! – who wrote this post for her personal blog, while studying Italian in Bologna, 4,000 miles from her boyfriend. What she recommends for maintaining a good relationship longdistance is personal, but I thought there were enough great ideas to be worth repeating, to inspire others to personalise and adjust to the significant other in their life. Also, I think a few of these ideas are superb for keeping in vital touch with close friends who don’t live nearby. (That sounds a contradiction: close but far away!)

There are 2 reasons for this.
