Walking down picturesque streets, wondering what will be around the next corner, discovering hidden gems, the perfect little coffee shop, a magnificent art deco doorway; there’s nothing quite like getting lost in a new city and making unexpected discoveries. However, have you ever returned home only to find out you had been in spitting distance of a fabulous place you would have loved to have visited, if only you had known it was there? I certainly have. And have you ever wondered when in a new city where you can find the best street food or street art or even perhaps, where is the absolute best place to buy a pint of Guinness in Belfast?
Read my articles offline with GPSmyCity on your phone or iPad
To find the answer to the latter you could head over to my post Top 12 Things to See and Do, Eat and Drink in Belfast or, better still, you can now download this article (and many other great travel stories) to read offline here on GPSmyCity. You’ll need to download the app first to your phone or iPad.
Now here’s the really clever part, you also have the option to link to an offline map and GPS navigator making it super easy to visit the points of interest described in the article without the need for gobbling up data charges. This upgrade costs just 79p, part of which comes back to me to help with the cost of running my blog.
Here’s a list of my articles to date available through GPSmyCity.

Download GPSmyCity walking tours for your favourite cities
On the app you’ll also find great city guides, each with a collection of fascinating self-guided walking tours covering a great range of interests. On each Sightseeing Walk, as you meander from one highlight to the next, you can read an informative description of that sight. These really bring a city to life and make your walk all the more interesting.
Each city guide can also be read for free or upgraded to include the maps and GPS navigation for just £3.99 (or $4.99 depending where you are in the world) for each city bundle. To help you discover just how great they are I have 20 upgraded city apps to giveaway. Pick a city of your choice from over 470 available and you’ll have full access to ALL the self-guided walks for that city.

I never travel without insurance. If something unexpected goes wrong the costs implications are just too high to take the risk. World Nomads provides travel insurance to travellers from over 130 countries. They're the perfect choice for long term travellers or single trip insurance.
