Trick to receive texts when outside US without travelpass??

I can't figure out a trick to read and send texts outside the US with my number when traveling(without paying for the ridiculous travel pass)using a samsung galaxy. There has to be a way. I tried the Verizon web page, but that made me log in again when I was out of country and Vz doesn't let me log in without receiving a text(no option to email code or answer security questions) So I'm locked out of my Vz account when traveling unless I pay for texts. So I tried the Google messages website, synced it at home, but it stopped syncing when I was outside the US (?!?) I have a Google voice number but I need to receive and send texts from my Verizon number.  I only use eSims when traveling and forward my calls to family but I can't figure out how to deal with texting without paying $10/day. I saw text forwarding apps but they all seem like junk. What's the trick?
