There’s An App For That

I’m often asked which apps I use most or like best for traveling (sustainably).

In an ideal world I would never have to book anything in advance, land in a new destination and have a day planned by a local upon arrival. I might want to volunteer for a day or randomly decide to visit the local farmers market. And now I can. These are some of my favorite (and most useful) apps to fulfill all of the above and more.
