How do you solve a problem like Marica?
MARICA Salpietro from italktravel Kensington was singing from the mountaintops when she found out she was the winner of the Austrian National Tourism Organisation and Emirates competition run in travelbulletin last month. Marica’s well researched Austrian rail itinerary earned her a trip to Austria herself, flying Emirates. She will get the chance to explore Vienna, Salzburg and Tirol, staying in the Austria Collection Hotels which Marica picked in her competition entry. Nav igat ing our own home cities can be challenging, so imagine how much harder it is in a foreign one! Nobody likes to seem like a tourist, but inevitably, travellers will spend precious moments of their trip poring over train timetables and maps, when they could be out exploring a fantastic new city. Citymapper is here to solve this. The nifty app offers a more detailed journey planner than even Google Maps, including real time departures and disruption alerts, as well as Uber integration and cycle routes, along with the price of each option. So now you can seem like a local and navigate New York’s subway system like a pro. Citymapper is free on the IOS and Android app stores.
