No doubt that there are a lot of things involved in the process of planning, booking and implementing your desire to travel, into reality. Luckily nowadays we live in a very advanced world, the recent explosion of "apps" have created an easier way of being able to carry out everyday tasks and decisions. Here I have listed my top 5 essential travel apps that will make planning your trip a lot easier.
Got that hardcore craving for a muffin? Though don't know where to get one from? It always happens, maybe not always with muffins, though we all get the urge to eat. Yelp is a great way of finding what sort of food you are looking for. It also gives you a list of what's on a specific menu at bars and restaurants. Once you have used yelp to find what you want to eat and where, use the app - Open table to make reservations or bookings.
We all need to keep in touch with family and friends whilst we are travelling, we want to share our experiences and special moments that reflect on the time we're having whilst travelling. Whats App is a great way to stay in touch with others, share your photos, videos and landmarks using wi-fi or 3G networks.
