Travel Apps You Need Right Now

TRAVEL APPS YOU NEED RIGHT NOW / NICOLEMCARUSO.COM

With the holidays around the corner (seriously, how is it almost Thanksgiving?). I wanted to share some of my favorite travel apps to streamline your next trip. Also, if you need a Family Packing List to ensure you don't leave anything at home, like, say, your toothbrush, click here to download one I created now

BOOKING A STAY 

GETTING AROUND

  • Uber to get a ride, anytime. No more getting stranded or relying on the luck of catching a cab.
  • Transit for metro, bus, and train info in almost every big city. 
  • Flight - Live Status & Weather the sleekest flight tracker app I've seen, with a minimalist design, where you can track weather and flight status all in one place. 

GRABBING A BITE

CHECKING OUT THE LOCAL SCENE 

  • AllTrails for hiking, biking, walking, and running trails for a bit of mapped out outdoor exercise, no matter where you are. 
  • Mass Times to find a Catholic mass, anywhere in the world. 
  • Journy for those that get stressed planning and need a concierge to make personalized recommendations for sightseeing, shopping, dining, and everything in between (and it works offline, great for international travel!).

Nicole M. Caruso

I was born in Manhattan to two native New Yorkers who met working in the Garment Industry. Fashion was the family business. Suburban Connecticut is where I grew up and often daydreamed about someday attending New York Fashion Week.

When I was in college studying Communication & Media, I met the man of my dreams. We married nearly one year after our first date, and have been adventuring together ever since. While we moved around the country for his job, I freelanced as a makeup artist, worked in retail, and blogged about style & beauty as a creative outlet. 

Moving back to New York led to serendipitously working for two major fashion houses, where I learned the ins and outs of the industry, and attended Fashion Week both backstage and in the tents. Soon after, Verily Magazine brought me on as Beauty Editor, which was my dream job. It combined all of my passions and hobbies into one, and granted me a deeper understanding of print and digital media. One year after that, I had my daughter and experienced true fulfillment in motherhood. 

Everywhere I have traveled, I have met incredible women who inspired me to be the best version of myself; to wake up every day feeling confident and ready to Carpe Diem. I want to inspire women to explore their feminine genius by investing in their self-worth. This lifestyle blog is the place where I can share my worldview, my experiences, and my tips and tricks to live a more fulfilling life, which include expert style and beauty advice, tips for healthy living, and reflections on marriage and motherhood.
