Apps to make a perfect road trip

Did you hear about this one? Top 5 apps for a perfect road trip

We all have an opinion about holidays. There are those who choose to go to rest or to get inspired by nature. Others prefer the beach to mitigate the heat and others love the adventures. However, for some of us, taking a perfect road trip is the best way to take the most of our vacations. Like in Thelma & Louise, it groups freedom, amazing landscapes and great anecdotes to recall. 

A road trip means exploring new corners with the rhythm of country music. It also means having the patience to survive to the traffic jams and to enjoy the freedom to go wherever we want. If you are as excited as us to discover the magic of road trips, take a look at these guide with tips and apps to help you hit the road. 

1. Plan your road trip in group

It is always wise to be on the same page as our friends or family when we are about to spend so many hours together in a car. There should be a conversation about the details of the road trip. To name a few, we should discuss about how many stops approximately we want to do, what kind of places we would love to visit or what activities we want to enjoy on the way. This is crucial to ensure good vibes throughout the road trip.

To plan it, we are thrilled about Road Trippers. It is an interactive road trip app that works both for desktop and for iOS, where we can create a route on a collaborative pannel. Anyone on the group can edit it and add comments, interesting spots or activities. The app also helps us decide by recommending us some hotels, stops, restaurants or routes. While helping us plan a trip, it draws our route on a map so we can organize our time better.

2. Where to refuel?

 

On a road trip, where to stop on the way is almost as important as what to do when we arrive to our destination. Considering the fact that we are traveling for hours, when we have a pause off the car we don´t want to arrive to a place without restaurant. Let alone a dirty toilet. It is better to have a glimpse about the nearer gas stations so we can choose wisely where to park the car. 

Among all the apps that help us plan better our perfect road trip, we love Along the Way. This app informs us about gas prices throughout our route, but also it gives us great insights from other travelers about the stops. Those reviews can point out the quality of the food available there, the bathroom characteristics and some other useful facilities such as if it has an ATM. 

3. Drive in group?

When we tell our friends and family that we are going to spend long hours in the car, it is inevitable that some of them will point out the dangers of the road. To make the trip more peaceful for everyone, we can share our location in real time with them with our app, Wave application. This app enables us to open a group with the occupants of the vehicle and with our relatives in which we will all share our location privately.

In addition to this feature, it includes a real-time GPS navigator that can guide us even in remote locations. Another interesting feature is that it has a chat in which we can write or share images. This makes it possible to have all the information and news of the trip with our friends in a single app.

4. Let the miles fly away

 

Being stucked in a traffic jam or driving along a route will be boring from time to time. For those times when our conversation declines, we can turn on the radio with the app Simple Radio. This apps works even in remote areas catching the digital signal of more than 40 thousand radio stations all over the world. Podcasts, sports and any sort of music will load to make our adventure a perfect road trip. And it will fulfil everyone’s tastes.

5. Where to stay during a perfect road trip?

 

A road trip is full of unforeseen and that is precisely the magic of traveling the roads. We stop when we want and we continue when we have rested. However, not knowing where we are going to sleep tonight can be less fun when we are tired. Specially when we have not booked any hotel or apartment.

Other expert travelers have already thought of this and have created Rommer Travel. It is one of the largest communities of travelers reselling their hotel stays. If someone has to cancel a reservation, they sell it at a low price and let others take it at the last minute. Everyone wins! Similar to this one, another app to make a perfect road trip is Hotel Tonight. This app also offers last minute rooms around the globe.

Do you want something more? Take a look at the ultimate guide for a road trip made by the prestigious website Auto Accessories Garage.

Okay, we know there are many more apps that make the road trip more bearable. What would be your recommendation for a perfect road trip?

Volvo Ocean Race 2017-18: everything your need to know, stages, climate and stunning videos

“Hark, now hear the sailors cry, smell the sea, and feel the sky let your soul & spirit fly, into the mystic…” said the singer Van Morrison and could not describe better what will be the most important regatta in the world, the Volvo Ocean Race. More than 45,000 nautical miles throughout the world will be the scenario for a speeding race with the best navigators in the world.

The world competition will be played between 7 participating teams of various nationalities and men and women who will conquer the oceans. Several of them have Olympic medals and a long career in the seas, although for others it will be the first time they will experience a 7 month sailing around the world facing calm seas, icebergs, tropical storms and a hostile climate, in which the navigation strategy will mark the decisive victory of each stage.

The Volvo Ocean Race is a world regatta that started in 1973 from Portsmouth, in the United Kingdom and had only 4 stages. By today it is been extended to 11 stages and departs from Alicante, in Spain.

Route of Volvo Ocean Race 2017-2018

In each edition, the race slightly changes its route to cover new cities of each of the continents.

The first stage

It will begin on October 22 from Alicante, a coastal city in Spain located in the Mediterranean Sea towards Lisbon, in the Atlantic Ocean. It will cover 700 miles.

The previous calm of the warm European sea will be interrupted by a foreseeable odyssey around Cabo de Gata, a complicated orography, as it is navigated very close to an outgoing coast with capes, bays, strong winds and extreme climatic conditions. Sailors would feel periods of absolute calm – impossible for navigation – near Lisbon, as forecasted the prologue of the race.

The in-port race will be held on November 3 in Lisbon and it would be a unique opportunity for tourists and fans who want to see the speed and intensity of the race between the teams near the coast, encourage them and feel the power of navigation in front of his eyes.

The second stage

It will start on November 5 in Lisbon and border the entire western coast of Africa to reach Cape Town in South Africa. In this stage of 7000 nautical miles there will be several meteorological changes and different challenges, starting with an autumnal climate in Lisbon and following an extreme climate of high temperatures and instability in the Azores archipelago, where the winds will determine if they stimulate a fast navigation or make it slow down. The in-port race will take place in Cape Town on December 8.

The third stage

It will depart from Cape Town on December 10 towards Australia, throughout the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian Ocean. It is a very difficult stage of wear and tear, in which several teams in the past have not been able to finish it, due to the area of ​​continuous storms.

The arrival in Melbourne will depend very much on the weather. The strategy of how participants will use the climate conditions to decide their route will be key to determining if they arrive on time to the Australian coast. In this case, an in-port regatta will not be held to give sailors time to rest.

The fourth stage

It will start on January 2, 2018 and will be a surprise, as there are plenty of alternatives to go to Hong Kong across different seas, such as the Coral Sea and the South China Sea. Sailors will cross 6000 miles with several climatic zones, dominated by tropical monsoons, periods of calm and influenced by the great proximity to the coast along the islands. The in-port race will take place on January 27 or 28 in Hong Kong.

The fifth stage

It features the Guangzhou in-port race on February 3 and water activities there, and will be non-scoring for the sailors, who will have to return to Hong Kong for their sixth stage.

The sixth stage

It will start on February 7 and will return to Australia, this time to the southernmost part docking in Auckland, after a journey of 6100 miles. It is an extreme stage, in which the resistance of the ships will be tested through storms and adverse weather conditions around the Solomon Islands. The in-port race will take place on 10 March in Auckland.

The seventh stage

It will cover the 7600 mile distance between Auckland and Itajaí in Brazil. This stage is the most coveted by sailors, as they will have a bonus the first to cross the Cape Horn. Unlike other stages, in this the navigators will go in search of the cold, leaving an Australia in autumn to cross the South Ocean with icebergs and icy temperatures. On April 20, the bravest sailors will battle the in-port battle in Itajaí.

The eighth stage

It will run between Brazil and the United States, departing on April 22 from Itajaí and arriving in New Port after 5600 miles of sailing. In it, the most important feats will be lived again with the fast winds Alisios, doldrums near the equator, which are always unpredictable, and the anticyclone of Saint Helena, in which they could delay their departure. The in-port battle will take place on May 19 in New Port.

The ninth stage

It will return to Europe crossing the European continent in an incipient summer, after 5600 miles of distance. They will arrive in Cardiff, UK, where the in-port race will take place on 8 June. This is a classic route in the world of Western navigation, illustrated with large ice floes and fog, as happened with the famous Titanic, and the fearsome of the hot spring coming from the Gulf of Mexico.

The tenth stage

It will border the British Isles and Ireland for 1600 miles in direction to Gothenburg, Sweden. Two predictable scenarios can occur, one with storms of the Azores anticyclone, and another more calm, with a warm climate of the summer. The in-port battle will take place in Gothenburg on 17 June.

The eleventh and final stage of the Volvo Ocean Race

It will culminate in the Dutch city of The Hague, after 700 miles in which sailors will make the final sprint to become champions of the largest sailing competition in the world. The in-port battle will be in The Hague on June 30, accompanied by the celebrations of the victory.

The in-port races are a great way to live on the beachfront the action and strategy of the sailors, the excitement of the sport and to know a new city. Thousands of people will flock to the beaches these days, so we recommend the free Wave Application app, where you can meet your group of friends or family even in the crowd, sharing your live location privately on a map and for a limited time. It’s available for iOS and Android.

Did you hear about this one? 5 Apps to travel abroad and being safe

Crossing the borders of your country and breaking the routine of your habits, your language, and your currency is an exciting adventure that will make you live wonders. However, it can be a bit overwhelming if you are not used to it, or you do not know where to go if you have a problem, or just how to get around the city. If you are well equipped you do not have to worry at all!

That is why we have prepared some apps that we find very useful to help you travel safe and stress – free in your trip abroad. Here we go!

Know what is going on in your host city

Safeture

Safety is the most important thing while traveling, so having the information in hand to solve any situation is the best thing you can do in your trip abroad. Safeture app monitors over 200 countries around the world to provide you with information on flights, delays, strikes, clothing, advice for women, social behaviour laws and many other useful information about the local habits to avoid any uncomfortable situation. It is very simple to use, you only need to indicate the country you are going to and the date and it will provide you with several sections of information to navigate at your leisure.

Get lost only in safe places

Safety Map

When we travel to a new country we all love to get lost through the streets of that new environment, to have a look at the local shops, to watch people and mingle with the environment. However, this so romantic way of traveling is not the best option for some countries or cities in the world. Knowing which areas are safe to walk is the key to go safe on the trip and enjoy the city. To help you with that, you can download Safety Map app, in which you can see a map by neighbourhoods of thousands of cities of the world, updated with security information of each one. Use it when you feel like losing yourself to a new city. Sometimes, knowing whether or not to cross a bridge can save you from a lot of uncomfortable situations.

Be connected with your people

Wave Application

Traveling with your family or friends does not mean that you are always surrounded by them as we all enjoy a bit of freewheel traveling. Therefore it is more than useful that you download Wave Application, our free app where you can open a group with your travel mates to share your location with them and see where is everyone on the map. For example, if you are splitting for a while to visit different things, you can open a map for 3 hours with your buddies, see where they are to join after and chat meanwhile with them.  

Wave is updated in real time and has a very precise technology to display accurate maps to find your people, even in crowded city centres. With the latest features it is also possible to share via link your location with somebody that does not have Wave installed yet. Millions of users around the world use Wave to be connected and safe while traveling.

Translate your speaking

Trip Lingo

Among all the travel apps we love Trip Lingo, a complete travel guide that includes language lessons so you can learn before you go, and a guide to popular notes and phrases, ordered by the tone you want to give a conversation. We do not speak in same way with a group of young people or with the hotel receptionist. In addition, it has useful information from each country, such as cost of living and common expenses.

However, what we like most is the voice translator to another language, a super advanced tool to automatically translate your words to another language, without having to write them. Imagine that your belly hurts and you go to the pharmacy, simply speaking to the application and explaining your symptoms, the microphone will record your words, translate them and a voice will read them in the local language to the pharmacist. Useful and fast.

Take the most out of a cancelled flight

Gate Guru

An app that we love is one that makes our lives easier when there are problems, as Gate Guru, for when our flight has been canceled or is delayed. There is no better way to face the waiting than discovering the best places of the airport, where ATMs or shops are, which restaurants are worth to go, and most importantly, what is the most recommendable menu. Gate Guru has a map of almost every airport in the world and also informs you every few seconds of any news on your flight. Thus, you can relax on a terrace or a pleasant corner of the airport and avoid getting up to watch the screens of the airport.

Trip with friends- Tips to get the most out of it!

Trips with friends are a great way to live new adventures, gather old buddies to get some quality time or to plan a well-deserved trip to find moments of happiness. But let’s face it, there is a downside: travelling in a group can get quite complicated! We discovered some ideas and tips for preparing a trip with your group of friends easily.

Before the trip

Plan Chat app for travel with friends
Plan Chat

Hipmunk, HopperLiligo are some price comparators of flights, trains and buses to choose which destination has better prices and schedules. This is a practical way to start planning your holidays, as you all probably don’t  live in the same city.  

Once you have some ideas, select a date to vote and open Plan Chat, an useful app to vote between members, make polls and plan every single details of your trip. It has the possibility to create different groups to discuss each topic separately and to add pictures or text information to each one.

On the go

Wave App for meeting friends
Wave Application

The best is yet to come but the illusion is so exciting that we start to overwhelm us for everything, the dates, the clothes and the activities to do everyday. The most important thing is to realise that, although it is a group trip, you can split for a while to do different things. Let’s say you are in a very historic city and you would love to visit the ruins, while others need some rest after lunch or just getting lost around the city.  

With the realtime location of Wave Application, you can be connected with your friends as you make plans for your own. It is an ideal way to meet in crowded or new places. With this app you can create a group between friends for some hours and see each other’s location on a map, in real time. Also, it has a chat so you can comment on what you see.

While travelling it is common that you will need some cash to pay your friends, or the other way around: to get paid and then carry on a vast and heavy amount of small coins. Now it is easier than ever to pay online and we love how Circle Pay app gets everything ready, as you can select a contact and make a transfer quickly, linking your debit card. It is the easiest way to solve all money issues in a minute. Another choice you can use for payments is Venmo, that is one of the quickest to make the transfers.

Another essential sort of app to travel with friends is a cloud storage. Cloud, Drive or Dropbox are among the most popular, and all serve you to upload automatically your pictures from your smartphone on a shared folder with your friends.

Back at home

      1. Write down the best picks

Being able to go back to the good times spent with friends is priceless. So why not to write it down? This mental exercise is an amazing way to avoid forgetting life memories and experience them afterwards having different points of view. If you want to write it with your smartphone in your empty moments, you can download Trip Journal, an app to share moments on text, pictures and videos of every single detail of your trip.

      2. Filter the best photos

The most experienced travellers do not upload dozens of pictures of each day of travel and neither should you, if you do not want your audience to stop following you. Learn to filter and choose a few images from each day.

      3. Give some feedback

To end, give some feedback and comment on the restaurants and hotels you’ve visited. It seems boring, but you will be helping all people who, like you, have looked at valuations on the internet before traveling. And also help someone who has made your vacation a bit more enjoyable.

You are ready to plan your next adventure. Tell us how your friends trip was and send us your pictures to our Instagram.  

Groups: the location sharing feature made real

Sharing the location is a trend and people are more and more willing to share their location privately with their friends whenever they are meeting in crowded places. Recently, the biggest social networks have launched timid features of location, but have forgotten a very important issue: people usually hang out in groups!

Wave application was born to precisely offer something that nobody had seen before: the option to open groups with friends to share their location with them in real time.  This helps them to spot each other in crowded places, festivals or even on the mountains.

Wave Application has built a complete communication tool with navigation features, a chat and a map in with to share places with friends and see their whereabouts.

Sharing the location in a group is one more way to be connected with whoever you want and only when you want. So far, we have facilitated millions of sessions between friends, family members or work colleagues. That is why we have not stopped growing to reach more than 11 millions of users.

GROUP MAP WITH FRIENDS

To see how group location works, we can go to the menu and select “create a group”, then add directly all members we want and select the period of time for the session. Our most common wave lasts 15 minutes. However, we can set it up for more time or get the unlimited one that stops only when we want to. The latest one is very useful for those traveling together, going on a hiking tour or driving.

Once the group is created a request will be sent automatically to each contact and we are all set up! When the requests are accepted the group map opens showing all contacts at the same time. Then we can chat, share our suggestions to the meeting point and set one place on the map, take directions to get there or call an Uber.

When the time selected expires nobody will be able to share their location anymore. Privacy is our core value. We believe location is something personal that should be shared only when needed and not at all times. As users we know that we should be the ones to control tech to make our life easier and avoid being controlled by tech and third parties.

MEET PEOPLE THROUGH GROUPS

Groups are created to fulfil daily situations in which people meet up with friends or more people, change the place to stay, meet in crowded places or simply don´t know the city and how to get there.

Here at Wave we firmly believe that our millions of sessions opened are a sign that we are revolutionising the way people interact with others. Our technology  is built specifically to provide the best design and solution for people’s lives and with the passion of doing it better and more precise than any other location service.
