I love planning trips almost as much as going on the trip itself. So, I am always on the lookout for cool travel apps.
Ulmon CityMaps2Go is now my key tool for planning (and executing) city trips. You can use different coloured markers to map out all of the tourist attractions, restaurants and shops that you want to visit. I find the visual grouping of sites makes it easy to plan a day. Or, in the midst of a trip, to determine where to go next.
Ulmon also enables you to share your great ideas with travel companions. Once I have mapped out an upcoming trip, I send it to my spouse (who unlike me does not share my love for trip organization). She then has a quick overview of our plans for the trip and can click on any of the
markers to learn more about a particular venue.
I should also note that all of the maps can be downloaded for offline use. So, no need to incur expensive cellular charges.
I recently visited London. Here’s a quick snapshot, including our home base marked in blue.
