The only thing that’s keeping you from getting what you want is the story you keep telling yourself.”
— Tony Robbins
When I was backpacking Europe with a doctor and member of the French Foreign Legion we’d always talk about what skills we brought to the table in the event of a zombie apocalypse (you know normal conversation). Zoran could help the injured, Philippe could blow the zombies up, and me, well at first I didn’t have an answer.
But over the course of the trip I realized, I’m the best at picking things/making decisions. If a zombie apocalypse came, I’d best be used running the logistics of the resistance.
Maybe it’s my competitive nature. But I love the little “winning” feeling I get when all the orders at a restaurant come out and mine looks the most delicious, or when I find a great place to stay in an area people haven’t even heard of, and of course I love picking which friends would enjoy a trip the most.
Contrary to what you might be thinking, none of this is actually about being better than anyone else or even ‘winning’. It’s more about experiencing the best possible version of life and honestly, I don’t trust anyone else to make those choices for me.
I want to experience the best of life, and especially the best of what each place I visit has to offer at that time. Otherwise, what’s the point of going?
So this isn’t your comprehensive list of travel apps. You can find hundreds of blogs titled “best travel apps” just about anywhere. And in them, you’ll likely find a lot of what I detail over on my travel resources page. But I’m assuming if you’re here, you probably already know to use Pinterest, Google Maps, Airbnb, Booking.com and even Skyscanner.
What you’re looking for is the best NEW or unconventional travel apps that will take your trip planning to the next level. Insider info that gives you an “edge” in planning and enjoying your upcoming adventures.
