If you’re not already into the “planning apps”, you’re definitely missing out. You just have to give them a try and do things in a different way from what you’re used to (and have some internet connection for most of them!) . They end up being so helpful and lifesaver when time flies before the departure. If you know any other app that will smooth our travels, tell us in the comments!
