Five Travel Tools
TripIt is the absolute best. This website takes any reservations that you make and organizes it into one itinerary, without you having to do any work. Plane tickets, hotel reservations, tours, etc are all compiled into a list and saved as a "trip", so you can easily see all your information in one location. You can also share your itinerary with other people, so they can find your plane number or the hotel number just in case.
While traveling overseas, I always shut off my data so that I don't rack up a huge bill. This makes it nearly impossible to communicate with anyone back home, unless I use email. What'sApp is an instant messenger that lets you communicate instantly with anyone in the world! I use this at home as well to talk with my overseas friends, and it's as quick as texting. You can also send pictures, video and sound.
Five ShowsI'm just going to skip over this section this week..literally every one of my favorites got voted out on the shows that I watch. I'm way more upset than I should be.
Five SongsNick Fradiani : Beautiful Life
As sad as I am about my favorites (Clark and Jax) not winning American Idol, I have to admit that Nick's coronation song is pretty good. It sounds much better than most of his performances on the show, and it has a Fun.-esque sound to it. If all of his new music sounds like this I'll be a fan!
David Guetta ft. Nicky Minaj and Afrojack : Hey Mama
Typical summer jam, and I'm loving it! Super catchy and fun song.
Christina Grimmie : Feelin' Good
This is the ultimate pick-up song! I loved Christina Grimmie when she was on The Voice a few seasons ago, and her album is great. This is my favorite song from it!
Christina Aguilera : You Lost Me
I will never not love a song by Christina Aguilera, particularly her slower, dramatic songs. This one is so full of emotion and I've been listening to it non-stop this week. It's pretty much the opposite of the song above!
Rudimental ft. John Newman and Alex Clare : Not Giving In
My running power song of the week. The song is really catchy and has a great beat, and has a strong message in it. I love listening to this at the end of my run, and will put it in my 5 mile race playlist tomorrow!
What are some of your favorite travel apps?
Are you done with reality TV like me? (that is, until The Bachelorette and Big Brother and Masterchef start...)
