These Are The Best Apps For Planning Your Travel Bucket List
As the popular saying goes, ‘You only live once.’ It’s the reason many people try to enjoy as many enriching experiences as possible. Whether it’s traveling to a new country, eating at a specific restaurant, or climbing the highest peak— bucket lists exist to help us keep track of our greatest aspirations.
And like everything else in the modern era, there’s an app for that. Travel Noire has highlighted applications that help organize your goals and even discover new possibilities. The beauty of these is that they can also be used to make everyday plans.
If the bulk of your bucket list plans include international travel then this app has you covered. The Travel Mapper includes a travel scratch map to check off the countries visited and a pin map to highlight those areas still to be discovered. A visa checker allows users to quickly view the requirements for entry into their next destination.
