Yes, I do realize there is still quite a large discrepancy.
My wonderful husband bought me my very own iPhone this Christmas. I have had a great time downloading free apps, especially travel apps. Disney has some great ones. So many, in fact, that I had to create a Disney Travel folder and a regular travel folder. I just hope we can go to Disneyworld again soon. Despite my best efforts, we didn’t actually see everything. WDW maps, Disney Memories, Disneyland. I’ve never even been to Disneyland!
In my regular Travel folder, I added Tony Bourdain’s The Layover Guide. It has some great ideas for dining in different cities. Makes me hungry! Also, I have the American Airlines app, of course. It is my preferred airline when traveling. And…my reservations for Seattle automatically come up. Awesome! Two foreign language translators for when we finally get to go back to Europe or visit my friend in Tokyo.
I also downloaded Telenav GPS for those looooong roadtrips I tend to take us on. Because getting lost in rural South Carolina and coming across a teen rave in the middle of the night is no fun.
And, of course, I got Sudoku, Words with Friends, and Fruit Ninja for waiting in airport lobbies and, again, those long road trips.
If you all have any travel apps you’d like to recommend, then please share them in the Comments. Especially free ones. Because we all like free.
While working on “Big Texas Road Trip Playlist,” I realized just how eclectic the music from the great state of Texas truly is. (Not that I’m biased or anything!) If you, too, want to enjoy just about type of music from one state, this is the playlist for you. ENJOY!!
*Parents: Beware that there is strong language lurking among this playlist, and some songs ARE NOT suitable for your little ones!*
Big Texas Playlist
In the mood for Antonio Banderas? Flamenco? Spanish Guitar? Operatic stylings of Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras? Then this playlist is for you! Join us on a musical trip to the largest country of the Iberian Peninsula. Enjoy!
Sounds of Spain Playlist
As summer ends and fall settles in, we all are wishing for that last hope at a summer vacation. Okay, so this is more technically a boat trip playlist than a road trip playlist. But what better way to keep the summer spirit alive than with songs of the sunny Caribbean!

This one’s ambitious! For fun, (if you are taking this trip) try pausing at the end of each state until you get to the next state! If any of you out there DO use my playlist for this particular road trip, let me know how it turns out. Thank you!
