When it comes to new social media apps, I get a little hesitant. I mean, I already use Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat and Pinterest pretty regularly, so why on earth would I (or you) need to add another one to the list?
Because TraveLibro is an awesome way to document your travels and turn you into an instant storyteller.
Ever since I discovered the app, I’ve loved using it to document my travels, and I’m in the process of adding all my past adventures to share with the world.
So, why exactly is TraveLibro the perfect app for travellers?
“TraveLibro is a travel social network that lets travellers capture their travel experiences differently and gives them the opportunity to tell their travel stories. A user can capture their travel journeys live on-the-go, solo or with fellow travellers with the help of check-in’s, photos, videos, thoughts & reviews into a shared timeline, thus enabling them to relive all their travel stories. It is a great community to be a part of to inspire each other’s travel plans and fuel the wanderlust.”
IT HELPS YOU DOCUMENT YOUR TRIPS BETTER
As a blogger, I am constantly writing down notes in my phone to remember the finer details of my trips. I also find myself weeks or months afterwards (when inspiration finally hits me to start writing) going back through my photos, looking at dates and trying to remember what I did on certain days.
Yeah, I know. I’m pretty unorganised for someone who calls themselves a travel blogger.
With TraveLibro, it makes the entire process super simple for me. When travelling, you are able to document your journeys live, updating as you go. This way, you can sit down at the end of each day and update the activities you did, the places you went and the photos you took, making it easy to remember at the end of the trip!
It almost feels like cheating for travel bloggers and travel writers because you don’t have to make any extra effort to remember everything you did so you can write about it later. Just 5-10 minutes at the end of your day, and you’ve jotted everything down, so when the time comes to write about your trip, it’s all ready to go. Too easy!
IT PROVIDES ENDLESS TRAVEL INSPO
Using TraveLibro, you can follow other travellers, see their exact itineraries and activities, post reviews of places and business you visit on your adventures, share photos and videos, and connect with other like-minded people who share a love for exploring.
I love checking out other TraveLibro profiles to see what they share and follow their journeys across beautiful places. I’ve added plenty of new places to my bucket list thanks to those I follow. Did I mention that you can also tick off all the countries you’ve visited, and highlight those on your bucket list? Seeing all the places I’ve added to my bucket list on a map makes me even more excited to start ticking them off.
The ability to search by destination also provides plenty of inspiration, since you can look up places to visit, sights to see, where to eat and drink, and more. It’s full of advice from other travellers, which makes it feel more authentic than ever!
IT ALLOWS YOU TO SHARE LOCAL STORIES
Ever wanted to play tourist in your hometown? With TraveLibro, you can provide others with all the information they need to make the most of the place where you live. Plus, it gives you an excuse to get out and explore your local area, which is perfect for those times in-between trips when you feel like an adventure, but you’ve run out of annual leave!
IT IS ABSOLUTELY FREEEEEEEEEE
The best part about TraveLibro is that it is totally free. There is no sign-up fee and no in-app costs – all you have to do is create a profile and start sharing your adventures!
