It’s carnival time!!
As glamorous as it might seem, life on the road can sometimes be stressful, hectic and frustrating. And no matter how long you have been traveling, there’s always a new tip or two you can pick up from fellow globe trotters.
A semi tech nerd, I’m a huge proponent of using technology to make your travels run a lot more smoothly. We all have smart phones and tablets these days, so why not use them to our travel advantage. From services like Trip-It Pro that scans your e-mail to better organize your travel itineraries to airline apps like Fly Delta which offers flight alerts, mobile check in and even bag tracking services (though we pray you never need that), technology can be used to take some of the frustration out of a hectic travel schedule.
Exploring a new city? Download the guidebook to your phone or use Google maps to navigate your way around your new destination. Not familiar with the language and need a translation? There’s an app for that. There’s an app for almost everything!
Find yourself constantly searching for internet or tired of those monstrous roaming charges while abroad? Mi-Fi devices are an affordable option to keep you connected so your friends, family, fans and business don’t miss a beat. A little bit of travel tech savvy can really go a long way…
