Discover New Dishes with Helpful Apps

As anyone who is going to have a vacation once or twice in a year, I usually have a careful preparation for this event. I’m looking forward the trip choosing the place where to go, thinking over what to take with me, and planning my everyday activity. I want it to be perfect, without any stress. Just me, my friends, a new place, and a new culture. I am always excited about future trips and finding out something new. Food plays a huge role in getting a good experience from the trip. As a part of the culture, traditional food tells a lot about the people who live there, about local values and it opens the doors to a new world. That is why, planning my trip I always think of places where I might have a meal, read reviews and visit forums to gather the information about the perfect cafe for breakfast before long and eventful day, a cosy coffeehouse with desserts, a splendid restaurant for the farewell dinner. As technology moves forward, and software development companies create more and more useful apps, it is becoming easier, and I would love to share with you those apps that helped me a lot during this process.

Jetzy

The app itself is great for travellers, it connects people letting them share their recommendations and inspiring travel images. And it also rewards its user with pleasant things such as spa vouchers, hotel stay, dinner for two, or even free trips to Tahiti. When you sign in you choose your travelling style and get the options where to go.

Meal Sharing

Where you can taste a real traditional meal if not in the house of local people. Well, with Meal Sharing it is becoming possible. People who tried it usually leave positive reviews and share it with others. So do I. Enjoy the comfort of the local’s home and get the authentic dining experience.

Ness

Ness is your personal advisor in finding new restaurants you will love. With a rating system, you just mark the restaurants you liked and next time you are looking for something it will suggest a place for you. The longer you use it, the better it gets. That is why never forget to rate the place. In addition, you can find there useful reviews of various users, check the menus, Instagram photos, and make a reservation via OpenTable.  

Foodspotting

A visual guide, like Instagram for food, will help orient in all this variety of dishes any restaurant offers. Being a great tool for recommendations, it helps to find dishes your friends found good and share what you liked.   

Chefs Feed

If you are a real connoisseur of the restaurant meals then you probably will be interested in tips from those who are professionals themselves. Chefs Feed shares a professional opinion on favourite dishes of well-regarded chefs in 16 global cities.

Bar Roulette  

The combination of Yelp reviews with Uber will provide you with intriguing and safe night experience. It chooses a top rated bar for you and orders an Uber to take you there not telling you where exactly you are going. A fun app to get acquainted with city’s nightlife.


Get new experience, discover, and learn more about new places and culture through the cuisine. I hope this list of applications will help you to enjoy this process.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

First Day In The Royal Caribbean Cruise To Mexico

ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT.... gently down the sea....  Royal Caribbean, it is my second time following this giant vessel, the first time was from Singapore to Phuket, that was a very nice cruise.  So when my son mentioned that he found a good deal online, this time to Mexico, I agreed without hesitation.  Let's Go! A three nights stay with food and lodging only cost around $250 per person with at least one senior in per room.  Meals were either buffet style or fine dining, we can choose and cafes were opened 24 hours for us to rest and relax.  How not to resist... LOL...  And so here we are... just one week after landing in US, I was on the sea....  Looks small from afar...  It was a giant vessel with at least 14 floors.... On the way to embarking after Custom Clearance...  Our room for the next three nights....  Small and cosy.... And adjoining to my son's family room through a door...  The one with balcony cost a bit more...  A short briefing about safety after we checked in....
