GPSMyCity Article Apps and a Giveaway

September 26, 2016

GPSMyCityDoes this happen to you? You find the perfect article for your upcoming trip, and you bookmark it, and then you promptly forget to look at it while on your vacation. Or worse, you remember, but you don’t have data in that country, so you can’t read it! It never fails, that I get home, read the article and immediately realize I didn’t see something mentioned in the article. The GPSMyCity app is going to change all that for you. Not only will you have the article, but you will also have GPS directions to all attractions mentioned in the article.

How GPSMyCity Works

GPSMyCity partners with bloggers, like me, to take articles they written and turns them into GPS-guided walking tours. Once you download the app, you can search for articles on cities you are traveling to next. You can then save the article to be available offline or upgrade the article for a small fee ($1.99). Upgrading the article will enable to GPS coordinates and provides you with a private city walking tour. The best part is you don’t need data or wifi for this to work! Never worry about data charges or getting lost again.


Thinking this is an awesome concept!? I do, and I want you to be able to try it out for free. Some of my blog posts have been turned into GPSMyCity walking-tours! For the next week, September 26, 2016, through October 2, 2016, I am giving you the upgraded article “There is More to Florence Museums than the David” for free!

Gifts for Travelers

Do you have a traveler on your gift list this year? If you do, I have rounded up some of the great things I have found to give them this year. In addition, I also have a giveaway for you today, so make sure to read all the way through to read the details to enter the giveaway!

International USB Travel Adapter

Gifts for Travelers

I have one of these, and I love it. The one I have though is out of stock. This is the same brand. Most of the electronics I bring on trips are dual voltage, and I don’t need a converter. This allows your traveler to carry only on adaptor for all their USB adaptors.

1000 Places to See Before you Die

Gifts for Travelers

This is a must have for any traveler or travel dreamer in your life! It is the ultimate bucket list of places to go. What is really great, is that it gives you many places to see in each country and city. This means you also get a mini travel guide.

Travel Scarf with Hidden Zippered Pocket

Gifts for Travelers

No traveler can be too careful about carrying their valuables around while traveling. This infinity scarf has a hidden zippered compartment to make that possible. This scarf was designed by a fellow travel blogger, so you know it is well designed for its purpose. It is available in many fabrics of different weights and styles. There is even a neutral color if your male traveler would be interested.

Travel Seat Cushion
Any traveler who has to sit in economy class for more than a few hours will appreciate this self-inflating seat cushion. In fact, I just ordered myself one for my flight home for Christmas.

Travel Humidifier Great for any traveler with allergy issues or if they are traveling to a dry climate. I have really bad allergies and asthma and when I travel to dry places or hotels with forced heat, this has saved me from getting sick. You attach it to a bottle of water and plug it into your USB adaptor (see the first gift) and it will put out a fine mist for about 8 hours. I put it right beside the bed. It works best with an Evian bottle and I just refill the bottle out of the tap. It does have a small blue glow, which makes a nice night light.

Power Bank 

If your traveler takes lots of photos for Instagram or uses Google Maps to navigate while traveling, then they need this rechargeable power bank. I have one similar to this and I love that if fits in my pocket and does not weigh much. Great for at the end of the day when you are headed back to your hotel and you have 5% battery left on your phone and your are lost!
