BEST APPLICATIONS FOR TRAVELING

​​The RENFE-SNCF trains take you to over 20 different destinations. It's always nice to know how to get to your accommodation, what restaurants are nearby or how the weather will be on the next day so you can make the best out of your trip and discover the city.

A few years ago, being prepared to travel needed an extra effort to avoid leaving important things in the luggage: clothing, pocket map, larger map, the travel guide, contact numbers ... and when you reached the destination, sadly discovered that you left some important things  home. Today, clothing is still necessary to travel (or almost always) but everything else we have it in just one place: the Smartphone. The number of mobile apps designed for traveling, and get to destinations is about the same number as people moving around the world ... every day dozens of new apps are released. And today we are going to recommend the most practical and easy apps to use for when you're traveling.
