Years ago, before people would go traveling to a new country, or even just a new state, they would have to make sure that they have read up on the new place and have all different kinds of maps. Luckily, in this day and age, instead of lugging around books and pages everything you need can be easily head in your hand.
I studied abroad for four months last spring and these are the most useful apps that I found. Some of these work best when things have been downloaded offline so make sure you plan ahead!
- Google Translate. This is THE MOST useful app when it comes to traveling to a country with a different language. You can download and convert to and from any language and download the entire dictionary offline that way even if you don’t have WiFi or service you can still use it!
- Rome2rio. This app helps you find the best way to get anywhere! It shows you by walking, by train, by flying, by driving and it will show up with the train times and flights. It is by far the easiest way to get an easy estimate of how long it will actually take to travel somewhere.
- Sygic Travel. This is the best app for finding what to do in a ton of different cities. It gives ticket prices, best times to go, and tips and tricks! It is really the most helpful if you are traveling to a city that you don’t know a whole lot about.
The best part about all of these apps is that they are all free! I hope this helps in your travels!
