(With my family through Europe)

The Idea

Taveling through Europe with familyWith the oldest of my four kids starting college in the fall, our chances to travel as a family were dwindling. Who knew if we would ever get a chance to go there together? So, if we went, we wanted to see it all! We drastically cut down the long list of desired destinations, and it still couldn’t be done in less than four weeks.



Get the most from your biking workout with these handy and useful apps.

I Love riding my bike, and I have been riding across cities on my same trusty Infinity recumbent for more than 25 years. But much has changed since the day I assembled that bike. What once required a truckload of communications and tracking equipment all those years ago, now fits comfortably in the palm of my hand. And what would have required a heavy backpack of maps, charts, repair manuals and videotapes, are now instantly accessible and stored on flash ram smaller than a postage stamp.


U.S. Traveller iPhone App Review


As the name describes, U.S. Traveler is made for travelers that call the United States their home and travel to countries outside their own. The application itself is overall very simple. In opening the app, on the “Countries” tab, you are presented with a list of countries & their correlating flags. I thought the added flags next to the country names were a nice touch, especially since most people can quickly find a country based on visual representation versus textual representation. I’ve traveled from the U.S. to numerous countries – Chile, Argentina, Germany & Italy to name a few. I cannot say that I was adequately prepared for the countries I visited, but this app for sure would have helped.

"Magic Map makes it easier than ever before to find your way around the parks," said Ian Meyer, Adelie Software founder. "You don't have to find a map and figure out where you are, just launch Magic Map and see which way to go."
