Exciting news: some of my blog posts are going to be featured on the GPSmyCity app! If you’re traveling to Paris, Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Luang Prabang, or Dublin, and want some help navigating around, read on…
I’ve grown so used to having the Internet at my fingers everywhere that it sometimes comes as a shock to travel in places where I don’t have data on my phone. Cuba, Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam are all places I’ve traveled without data. This meant I’ve had to do a lot of research ahead of time when on wifi. I love using travel blogs as guides, but saving all of the recommended destinations into a custom map takes a lot of time and effort.
Recently, I found out that there is an easier way to get around when I don’t have data. GPSmyCity is an app that offers articles written by travel bloggers (like me), which you can read for free on your phone. Then, if you’re traveling without data, you can pay $1.99 to upgrade so that GPS-guided directions for the article are available even when you’re offline. It’s certainly cheaper than buying Internet cards or a new SIM card, and knowing that the fee goes to support fellow bloggers is a nice feel-good factor.
A few of my blog posts are now available as GPSmyCity travel articles, so if you’re curious, please follow the links below to check them out!
Bonus: you can try out the GPS offline directions in my articles about Paris and Bangkok for free for one week, from November 21-27.
Here’s the full list of articles of mine which are available on GPSmyCity:
- How to eat well in Paris without spending all of your money (FREE GPS guide from Nov 21-27!)
- Temples and Thai food: Two days in Bangkok (FREE GPS guide from Nov 21-27!)
- Eating in Chiang Mai
- My Favorite Experiences in Luang Prabang
- Literary Sunday in Dublin
Some things to note:
- When you click on the article, you’ll get a prompt to download the GPSmyCity app. Then you’ll go to the article.
- If you want to get the free GPS guided offline version for the promo articles, just click “upgrade”.
- GPSmyCity will give me a small percentage of the cost of any paid articles. It’s just a few cents, but it does help offset the cost of hosting this travel blog.
