One year ago, an enthusiastic small town girl was hitting the button “Publish” for the first time! At the time, my only desire was to have a platform where I can share my travel stories and tips for my friends to read. It started with one post about my hometown which has been shared over 7ooo times now in Facebook alone (and still counting).
Then, everything dramatically progresses.
Suddenly, I found myself joining travel blogging communities, collaborating with other bloggers for a post, winning awards, reviewing hotels, getting paid and most recently, writing for Philippine’s largest newspaper by circulation! You can read more about it here.
It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since I started blogging. It was not easy. Traveling, blogging and having a full time job is hard to juggle. And yet, here I am celebrating my first anniversary! And on that note, I’m so stoked to partner with GPSMyCity to give you my first ever giveaway!
WHAT IS GPSMyCity
GPSMyCity makes popular iOS and Android apps that feature self-guided city walks in over 470 cities around the world. Each one of their apps contains from a few to over a dozen of self-guided walking tours for a single city, allowing visitors to explore on foot the best of the city at their own pace.
The app includes a detailed and fully functional map designed to help you “lose yourself without getting lost” on guided GPS tours. This includes architectural sites, landmarks, museums, nightclubs and multiple shopping routes. As well as you know your way around, this app will teach you a thing or two you didn’t know and provide the refresher you probably need anyway. There simply is no better way to see a city on foot, at your own pace and at a fraction of the cost you would normally pay for a guided tour.
The highlights and main features include:
* Thousands of travel articles included.
* Detailed offline city maps for hundreds of cities worldwide.
* Location bookmarking on map.
* Touring routes clearly displayed on map.
* Precise turn-by-turn walking directions from one sight to another.
* The “FindMe” feature displaying your exact location plus Auto Tracking feature displaying your movement on the map, so you always know if you are moving in the right direction (this feature is not supported by iPod Touch and iPad WiFi-only models).
* All walking tours are fully functional in an offline mode, thus no data plan or roaming is needed when traveling to foreign destinations.
* Ability to create your own self-guided walking tours.
This revolutionary application makes bus tours obsolete. You no longer need to hop on a tour bus or join a tour group; now you can explore all of the best attractions on your own, at your own pace, and at a cost that is only a fraction of what you would normally pay for a guided tour.
Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. This app gives you the option to turn off the GPS tracking in the background to prolong the battery life.
WHAT WILL BE WON
20 full version self-guided city walk apps ($4.99 each)
