Some Vacation APPreciation



If you’re an avid traveler like me, you know how tedious it can be figuring logistics. Stressing too much over where you’re staying, how you’re getting there, and what to do can put a damper on the entire experience.

However, U.S. News Travel recently came out with a list of the top ten best travel apps, so I put them to the test! Here are my top three favorite apps for making the most out of your summer vacation:

  1. Like your very own travel agent, TripIt helps you plan every detail of your trip—from car rental to lodging to restaurants. You can also forward the email confirmations of your rental car, flight, or hotel to plans[at] and let TripIt construct your itinerary for you!
  2. When I’m in a new city, of course I want to see all of the major landmarks. However, when I need to get away from the tourist scene, I turn to Goby. Goby pinpoints the local hot spots around you, including restaurants, recreational activities, and shopping. This app also comes in handy when looking for events. I constantly discover concerts, plays and festivals just around the corner.
  3. With this app, you can share your experience with others…the old-fashioned way! Postagram lets you bring the postcard tradition to the digital age by sending personalized photos from your trip to your friends and family back home. The best part: these personalized cards are only $0.99. Who says snail mail is obsolete?

Wherever your travels take you this summer, be sure to include these apps to make the most of your leisure time!

  1. Hey, Penny, Just saw your name on LinkedIn. Remember me from MHS/Americhoice?
    I left there in 2000, worked for the National League for Nursing (NLN) till 2013 when the (new) CEO reorganized and relocated the organization to D.C. – so, I stayed in NY and I’m creating a unique web-based business that will benefit nurses – so, of course, it will benefit everyone.. in the USA and hopefully in Canada as well – I keep in touch with Dr. Bonaparte and am honored to say that he has been very supportive of my goals. Do you know that he left healthcare, he left Horizon Blue Cross/Blue Shield of NJ – and he is now devoting 24/7 as the Bishop and Senior Pastor, New Hope Church of God..and he opened a health center in Trenton. He has a Spiritual Workout phone call Monday thru Friday at 5:30 AM 1.641.715.3640 access code: 190856 OR, if that’s TOO EARLY the recording can be called anytime after at this #: 1.641.715.3639 same access code: 190856… my husband and I look forward to this every day.
    As soon as my new business is operational I will announce it on LinkedIn.
    Please let me know how you are doing, I look forward to your response.
