Cool Cousin:

After this connection, you get you a map of their favorite city spots, and their personalized advice about what to do when you are in the area. This way, you can walk by interesting places, making the most out of your time while backpacking.


this restaurant app will help you decide where to stop for lunch. Instead of your typical restaurant reviews, it includes dish recommendations, and lets you see what fellow footspotters and friends recommend. And most importantly, it shows several pictures of all the food. One thing is for sure -it’ll be hard not to get hungry when using this app.  

My Panda:

Designed after the terrorist attacks in Paris, this app will tell you about the level of security in your area, as well as gives you security alerts. In some destinations, it will even let you see the fastest route to the police station, and gives you the opportunity to call with one screen tap. This app is perfect for staying safe while in a foreign city.


When you’re backpacking through an urban area, you’re probably going to spend a lot of time walking through the city, to and from different destinations. But just getting to your destination is not enough. You want to have a fun time getting there. Based on your interests and itinerary, this app will choose the best route for you, so that when you walk someplace, you’ll see all the things that interest you the most.
