My favourite apps for minimalist travel

Hey there! I hope you’re having a good Monday. 🙂

I can’t believe it’s been almost 3 years since I quit my job and started downsizing my life. I’ve been travelling outside the States for a year and a half now with everything I own fitting into a bag or two. Where does the time go? 🙂

I recently put together a video where I explain ten of my favourite travel apps so I wanted to share those with you here.

These are my favourite apps so far:

These apps are incredibly useful to me. All are free with the exception of the two marked with an asterisk:

  1. Facebook Messenger – for free phone calls and video messaging.
  2. Instagram – for networking with other like-minded vegan travellers.
  3. Snapseed – for editing photos on my phone.
  4. Google Maps – helps me find my way around a new city.
  5. Google Translate – so I can communicate with the locals.
  6. Trail Wallet* – helps me stick to a budget and keeps my spending in check.
  7. XE Currency Converter – lets me know the current value of my money.
  8. Nord VPN* – allows me to use country-specific apps (like Pandora) while travelling outside the US and lets me online securely.
  9. Relax Melodies – helps me sleep at night.
  10. Period Tracker by GP International LLC – keeps track of my period and lets me know when to expect it.

I hope these apps help you travel simply as well!

In Oct. 2014, I quit my job and started downsizing my life by selling and rehoming all my belongings. Even though I’ve moved around all my life, I officially left the States in Dec. 2015 and have been travelling abroad ever since. I hope to inspire you to simplify your life so you live with intention. I’m an avid writer, videography enthusiast, and a major foodie with a passion for sustainable living.
