Travel Tips and Advice
Have you ever got lost in a foreign country? Been stressed about how to get around without wifi?
I was too.
Luckily for me, on my most recent backpacking trip I discovered and fell in love with a new maps app: Maps.me.
This app is hands down the best offline navigating app I have ever used, and I highly recommend it to any traveler. I used this app every day to figure out how to get from one location to another, and it even tells you how to use the public transportation system!
How do you use it?
The best thing about this app is how simple it is to use. All you have to do is download maps of different countries you will be traveling to.
Once you download them onto the app once, you will have offline access to highly detailed maps, as well as your real-time location!
Maps.me allows you to get walking, driving, or public transportation directions from any location when you are traveling around a foreign country and don't have cell service.
Can you bookmark different destinations?
Another awesome feature of this app is that you can save locations and addresses for easier offline travel. The bookmark feature even allows you to give the address a specific name, has a space for personal notes and can be organized into different folders!
Are there restaurants and stores shown on the maps?
Not only can you see restaurants and stores offline, but you can also view historical locations, parks, hotels, bus stops, parking, and so much more.
How much does this app cost?
As a millennial traveler, I know how important it is to spend as little as possible.
And guess what? This app is free!
No need to spend money on a fancy navigation app. Maps.me will cover everything you need to be able to explore a foreign city without getting lost.
This app really has it all.
So, if you're planning to take a trip to a foreign country, I suggest that you download this free app and take some stress out of your adventures!
