A four-day work week is so awesome and this one is now over, let the weekend begin. Sooo, I had vlog for y’all but I could not get the lighting right – it rained all day it was just dark and gloomy, so I’ll save that until Monday. But now with Memorial Day in the rear view mirror, travel season is on and popping. To get you ready to travel, I have hand-picked some cool tech and apps that will make your travel season easy breezy.
1 – Losing your luggage or missing luggage is the worst travel nightmare. But don’t fret, Trakdot Luggage Tracker, saves the day. Just pop it in your luggage and you can find your luggage just by using the app on your phone ($49.99, for iOS and Android)
2- Are you traveling internationally, then WhatsApp is for you. You can send unlimited pictures, text messages, audio and video messages back home without any international charges using a WiFi connection (FREE for 1 yr, then .99 afterwards, for iOS and Android)
3 – If you rent a car, you’re gonna need to park it somewhere, SpotHero can find you the ideal spot. Locate and reserve a parking spot in less than a minute. Now it isn’t available in all cities, but you’ll find it in some major U.S. cities, like San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and Chicago, with more cities being added (FREE, for iOS and Android)
4 – Raincoat or fur boots, you’ll know what to pack using The Weather Channel app (FREE, for iOS and Android)
5 – I love airports, so many sights and sounds. But, they can be confusing, use GateGuru to help navigate the airport from dining options to restrooms(FREE, for iOS and Android)
Technology has seriously changed the face of travel with the advent of the Internet and smart phones. Most of these goodies are FREE and very easy to use. My favorite is WhatsApp, saved me a ton of money on my b-day vacay to London. You can even setup groups and chat with the whole fam at one time. Isn’t that cool?
What travel apps do you swear by? Have a fab weekend!
