How do you solve a prob­lem like Mar­ica?

Travel Bulletin - - LAST WORD -

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.
