St. John | Reminiscing of the summer weather and being there. I had never been to a tropical island before last summer and the trip was so worth it. If you still haven’t been to St. John, you must go. You’ll enjoy fantastic historic ruins, crystal clear beaches, and tons of donkeys (I kid you not..they were everywhere hehe). You can find my favorite beach thus far HERE.

…and I miss the bright and warm sunshine on my skin. Summer can’t come soon enough. Hope you all enjoy your Wednesday! x

App of the Week: Word Lens

Monday, January 19, 2015 0 Permalink

I love sharing with you guys new apps because there are so many out there. Plus, you deserve to know what to choose especially for traveling. With that being said, I introduce to you “Word Lens”. This app gives you the confidence of going to a foreign country and be able to understand some of the language without feeling completely lost. Word Lens gives you translation on the go.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Let’s say you’re traveling to Russia and you can’t read the signs for the life of you because the letters are very different from the English language. You snap a photo just like a regular camera by using the app and it translated the words in real time. You can also look up translations by typing them in. It’s not perfect but you can get the general meaning.

Amazing historic fortresses and only the best of them exist in Europe. If you love castles as much as I do, you may have to pack your bags and travel to France, Munich, and/or Prague to visit the world’s best castles. I gathered up some of my favorite to ease the case of the Mondays today ;)
