When traveling whether for work or going on vacation you always want to be prepared, not just when it comes to packing but your recourses. With so many people having access to smartphones in this day in age we basically have the world at our fingertips.  Here are some apps that you can use during your vacation or when traveling to help ease the process, and get this they all are FREE!


Google translator: 

This app comes in great use when traveling in or outside the country. If you do not already have the app Google Translator, it is a resource that allows you to do exactly what it says, translate. With the app being able to translate over 100 languages you are able to speak to, write, snap,and type a message and the app will translate it to in the language you desire. This can help relieve the stress of the not being able to understand  and will make your trip more enjoyable.This app is available for iOS and Android and it is also free.

Google Maps: 

Finding your way around in a different city let alone a different country can be hassle, with all the different road sign, so this is why we have GPS. I recommend Google Maps as your go to GPS. Google Maps offers multiple routes with step by step instructions. Also in many areas that have transit stations it gives you routes, but here’s the catch. Pay extra to use data in another country is never wallet friendly, so make sure you screenshot your directions before you leave your house. If you do get lost at least you have your screenshots and translate to help you out. Google Maps is free for iOS and Android.


EatWith: When traveling you want to be able to step out of your comfort zone and open up to new things, so why not start with food. Food is something that brings people from different background together. So, if you are will to try new food and meet new exciting people EatWith is the perfect app for your vacations. This app is usable in over 150 cities in 30 countries. EatWith connects you with underground chiefs and restaurants you would not see in your brochures. You will also connected with very interesting people who you can create memories with. EatWith is only available for iOS and it is free.

Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.
— Ray Bradbury


I hope these apps come in handy on your next travel. Remember always take the time out to travel, because we all need a break from work so why not make it one to remember.
