“Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.” – Gustav Flaubert.
I think he pretty much nailed it.
If you want to know humility, there’s nothing like packing your bags and heading to a place you’ve never been to. There’s nothing like feeling lost because you don’t speak the local language and meeting people who nonetheless, make you feel at home.
But there’s a certain comfort when your travel armor includes a few phone-screen friends who’ve got your back, just in case the adventure gets a little too out of hand.
Every traveller’s got to back himself up and rely on these 5 cannot-do-without apps.
I mean, I know sometimes the device can take you to the weirdest dead-ends imaginable, but you’ve got to give the “voice” some credit. From spotting a local market to leading you to your resort, Google Maps is like oxygen to the wanderer in you. Locate not only the most popular spots in the city but also avoid being tricked by cabbies giving you detours by knowing exactly where you’re headed.
If you’re up and about, it means you’re also ready to click some photos. Travel and memories go hand in hand. Especially if you’re on Instagram.
