Travel apps every digital nomad needs to have to stay on the road

Travel apps every digital nomad needs to have to stay on the road

Digital nomads are a new species and they are thriving in the new economic environment, where globalization is in full bloom. Working on the road and being always ready to travel to another country requires a lot of skills.

Among them all, digital nomads have a strong affinity for gadgets and apps. They work on their laptops, stay connected with their smartphones and rely on a plethora of apps to keep walking. Planning your traveling life has never been easier, thanks to these travel apps, which allow you to access anything, from anywhere.

In need of a transfer shuttle? Click, swipe and you’ve booked one. Are you looking for accommodation? You are several apps away from the best deal.

As an amateur digital nomad, who travels with the tablet and iPhone, I tested a lot of apps, so here is a list of the best ones I found during my nomad months. Feel free to complete this list!

1.The packing app: Packing Pro

Packing Pro comes at $2.99, but it is money worth investing. This app helps you stay on top of the packing game and reduces the risk of forgetting something. You can create packing lists based on the number of days abroad, number of travelers, the temperature, destination and even laundry service preferences. With this app, you will be able to create customized packing lists, so you will never leave home without your essentials.

2. The trip planning app: TripIt

TripIt is a free app which allows you to organize your next trip. It syncs your emails, you can create itineraries and you will get automatic notifications when a flight is delayed or canceled. This app helps you automatize all the time consuming tasks required for planning the trip, so for digital nomads or pathological travelers, this is one of those essentials for the road.

3. The transport apps and platforms: T2Transfer, HopStop and aMetro

A digital nomad needs to have all the help when it comes to transportation and these three apps help a traveler stay on the road. T2Transfer is a platform where travelers can find transportation from and to airports. You can book the taxi online, which saves you the time and hassle of finding a taxi with a sincere driver who won’t overcharge you.

HopStop is an app that provides information on the public transportation, from bus lines to public transit and more. The app currently covers cities in Europe, US and Canada.

Emetro is another smart app you can rely on, as it shows the estimated travel time between multiple transit systems. The app covers the entire world and includes information on buses, trains and metro.

4. Travel guide app: Triposo

Triposo is a free app that works offline, which is a big plus. To be able to rely on it you just have to download the country guide for the city you are traveling to; Triposo currently covers about 27.000 cities. For major cities the app provides details on the restaurants, nightlife and important sights.

5. Flight apps: GateGuru, Skyscanner

GateGuru is an app that helps you stay updated with all the information on your flight. This app notifies you about delays, gate changes, wait times and any other detail about the airport, along with the weather information. Maps and airport tips are also provided.

Skyscanner is probably one of the best apps ever invented, not only for digital nomads, but for all travelers. This is because SkyScanner helps you find the cheapest flights! This is not the only thing you can benefit from when using SkyScanner: you can use this app to find the most flexible travel arrangements, at the best rates. As flexibility is the staple of digital nomads, Skyscanner is a must have.

10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

Getting naked is often thought of as an act that should only be reserved for intimacy—and even then some get squirmy! Many people are more comfortable believing that the more clothes you are wearing the better. However, getting naked more often can have great benefits for you. Here are 10 great reasons to get naked more often:

1. It burns more fat.

Your body’s main supply of brown adipose tissue (BAT), or good fat cells, are located around your shoulder blades and neck. When your body is exposed to the elements and is cooler, the BAT proliferates and essentially kills the white adipose tissue, aka bad fat cells. So, not wearing any clothes helps promote this and makes you healthier.

2. You’ll become comfortable with who you are.

Self-acceptance is hard to come by today. Ask anyone you know and see if they are happy with themselves. Chances are they will say they are too fat, not pretty, and find all of the flaws that they can. In reality, others do not see this. They see that you are beautiful. When you begin to get naked, you learn to appreciate your body and realize how beautiful you really are.

3. It saves you money.

Being naked more often saves on buying new clothing since you are wearing nothing a lot of the time. Be careful when you are in public, though—you may have to put on some clothes!

4. It increases your immune system.

Being naked and getting exposure to the sun’s rays actually increases your body’s vitamin D levels. Vitamin D is directly related to your immune system. When you have optimal levels of vitamin D, your body’s immune system is impeccable, and you will be better equipped to ward off viruses, including the common cold and flu. So go lay outside naked on your private balcony or in your yard.

5. It makes you face your fears head on.

People cringe today when you mention the words “get naked.” They are so afraid of it—and today’s children are so ingrained with this—that they must wear layer upon layer to deal with their body image. However, when you are naked, you face your fears of body image and self-acceptance, experiencing some of the best moments of your life.

6. You will feel better in your clothes.

When you do wear clothes (because not everyone has yet accepted being naked in public), you will start to choose clothing that accentuates the parts of your body that you love. You will begin to notice that maybe that muumuu does not flatter your beautiful curves and start wearing clothes that you love.

7. You will embrace vulnerability.

When you put yourself out there, it is a natural reaction to have fear and worry. However, this is an opportunity to embrace being vulnerable. It allows you to think and get down to the core of what really matters and what is of importance to you. When you strip away all of the excess, you are 100% you and willing to take on anything that comes your way.

8. You will show the world the real you.

Today, we have many ways of altering our appearance from our true body image when we wear clothing. Some people alter their image so much that they fear getting naked with the person they love. It seems crazy that this could even happen; however, the rise in use of breast-enhancing bras and Spanx products has put this idea into people’s minds. This all goes back to being comfortable with your true body image. If a person really does love you, then they should not love you based upon your image. If they do, then you may even decide that the ever-so-uncomfortable leggings that go up above your waist to hold in all of the imperfections may not be worth it after all.

9. You will have fun.

Well, this could go in all sorts of directions. But when you are comfortable with your naked body and see it as being flattering, then life is more fun. You start realizing that you are beautiful and are willing to do more things that you probably would not have done otherwise—with and without your clothes on.

10. You can have intercourse with the lights on.

Many people are self-conscious about the way they look and decide that the less lighting the better when they are intimate with their partner. It’s nothing new. If you survey your best friends, you will probably come to this conclusion too. They may say that it even gets awkward, because they are more concerned with what their partner thinks of their body than just having and enjoying amazing intercourse. When you love the way you look naked, you will also want to have your partner see you at your best.

What are you waiting for? Start spending more time in the buff today and begin to change the way you think about your body.
