Way back when, visiting a foreign country was like navigating through uncharted territory. If you didn’t have the services of an experienced guide to get you around, you might have ended up in a far off village, with no hopes of finding your way back home again.
Luckily we live in the digital age, which means that something as simple as your smartphone can be used as a GPS to get you in, out and around a foreign country with the utmost of ease.
You can off course still go the old-school route and make use of a road map to navigate through the streets of a country abroad, but we’re not all for an authentic as-can-be experience, and most of us just hate the idea of getting lost in a land we don’t know.
To play things safe, just make sure that your phone is GPS enabled, and then simply make use of a brilliant mapping system like Google Maps. There’s also an abundance of apps for Android and iOS that you can download that’ll give you detailed information about points of interest and attractions in the country you’re visiting.
As a final note, always make sure that you have the addresses of all the attractions you plan to visit written down in English and the local language so that you can easily make use of public transport or cabs to get you from point A to point B without any frustrations.
