Ever read a travel blog and wish you could go on a tour of all the attractions mentioned? Now you can! New technology and mobile apps have completely revolutionized the way we play tourist.
GPSmyCity.com is a company that turns travel articles into apps and essentially turns your smartphone into a personal tour guide. With each download, you receive a GPS-powered article with a travel route plotted on an offline map guiding you to attractions, monuments, and interesting sights mentioned in the article.
As a traveler who generally has minimal budget, enjoys independence, and hates crowds, I personally see huge benefits to GPS-guided apps. They allow you to enjoy all the best attractions at your own pace, on your own time, and at a fraction of the cost of guided tours. Plus, you won’t have to hop on one of those obnoxious tour buses or walk around in a herd of other tourists.
Yes, you could go read travel blogs, write down names of places you want to go, research locations, and create your own tour. (I’ve done this many times and usually spend at least a few hours coming up with a route for each city). But if you don’t want to spend time creating your own tour, GPSmyCity.com has GPS-guided city walk apps you can download. You can browse by city and download travel articles for free, or for about $2 per tour you can upgrade for offline use and GPS tracking, so you won’t have to worry about having international phone service or using up your data plan.
I’m happy to announce that a couple of my blog posts have been turned into apps, and for a limited time GPSmyCity and I are offering the upgraded versions for free! To access my GPS-guided travel articles:
- Download the GPSmyCity master app on your smartphone
- Click on one of the article links below and choose “Upgrade”
I’m thrilled to be partnering with GPSmyCity and helping travelers spend less time researching or lost and more time exploring new places!
As always, keep on livin’ pura vida ✌
