Allison Furfine's insight:

This will be great to find things that are outside of the typical Paris tourism list. There is so much more to uncover in Paris than typical tourists see. It's definitely important to see the big sites in any place, but visiting these places off the typical tourist path will definitely enhance your cultural experience in Paris.

Repurposing Abandoned Paris Metro Stations

Repurposing Abandoned Paris Metro Stations | Travel and Tourism | Scoop.it

This is such a fun idea. Paris mayoral candidate Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet is proposing, as part of her platform, to repurpose some of the 14 to 16 abandoned Metro stations in the city of light , converting them into cultural or recreational gathering spaces. The project aims to bring back life to these phantom stations by giving them a new function. She commissioned architectural firms OXO Architects+ Laisné Architecte Urbaniste to come up with a series of concepts, rendering the Arsenal subway stop as a restaurant, swimming pool, nightclub and theater.


Via Lauren Moss
Allison Furfine's insight:

These are such cool ideas to put empty spaces into use and involve creativity and artwork at the same time. This would be something amazing to see if actually happened. When I'm traveling, I like to see things that other people haven't seen.

Helpful to anyone who doesn't know French but wants to travel to Paris and ensure that they can get around efficiently. When I got to Paris, I didn't know a word of French. This would have been so helpful to know that there was an English speaking taxi service when I got there. It definitely would have made my airport experience a little less stressful.

Six android apps every world traveller needs - Pune Mirror -

Six android apps every world traveller needs - Pune Mirror - | Travel and Tourism | Scoop.it
Travelling the world is a now seemingly ubiquitous pastime for everyone from students to pensioners. With smartphones and tablets equally as ubiquitous, we thought we'd put the two together to come up with the definitive list of eight Android apps that every world traveller needs.

Before beginning, it's important to consider what are the essential bits of information that you need while travelling? Apps with offline capabilities are certainly preferred, you'll need currency data, a way to contact home, on-the-go translations, and a way to record all your wonderful memories. Let's see what the Google Play Store can offer.

PACKING AND ORGANISING

Before you even leave for your trip you'll be faced with a growing to-do list. Flight tickets, hotel bookings, and car hires all need to be logged, and you'll need to make sure you don't overlook anything while packing, especially if you're going for a long time.

The answer is the TripIt Travel Organiser. The app lets you create lists for packing and organising your holiday, but also gives you a way to forward any important email to the app and get it automatically added to your itinerary. Gmail users will even find that details from any emails sent to their inboxes will be automatically added to their TripIt schedule without any human input.

TRANSLATION

There are two apps worth mentioning in this category: Google Translate and Word Lens.

Google Translate is known by everyone. If you live in a foreign land, have foreign relatives, or travel with any degree of regularity, you're bound to have used it. Two Google Translate features stand out for a world-weary traveller: the ability to translate offline while travelling, and the ability to talk directly into the microphone and let the app give an on-screen translation. If you do plan to use the app offline, be aware that you need to download the language package.

Word Lens is an augmented reality translation app. In practice that means that you open the app, point it at the text you want to translate, and see the translated text on your screen. It means no more typing in long and complex sentences - making it particularly useful for things like menus, signs, and labels. Like Google Translate, it is also available offline. Its number of languages is more limited though. Whereas Google Translate boasts 80 languages, Word Lens only has English, Spanish, French, Italian, Russian, German and Portuguese.

CURRENCY CONVERTOR

There's only one app worth mentioning here: XE Currency. The app lets you convert amounts between virtually any global currency, meaning you'll never give accidently give a taxi driver in Thailand Rs 500 instead of Rs 50.

Like the two translation apps, XE Currency works offline, meaning you'll never be caught out if you're without signal

CONTACTING HOME

After a while on the road you might feel the need to contact loved ones.

There are no offline apps in this category. There are the apps such as the everpresent Skype and WhatsApp that should be on your phone regardless, but you should also consider Tango.

Tango is a Skype alternative that lets you make free video calls, voice calls, and texts. The app includes "channels" that let you stay on top of news and sports, and you can even discover and share songs on Spotify.

MEMORIES

One of the best parts of travelling is recalling your memories once the trip itself is in the distant past. To do this, you'll need a great way to organise your thoughts, photos, and videos. Looking beyond standard apps such as Evernote and Facebook, you could consider trying the free Vacation & Travel Journal.

The app lets you track and document your journey by using images, video, audio recordings, and text, and it lets you sync all your data onto a Web site which can be shared with family and friends.

It has several cool features, including automatically logging the weather, longitude, latitude, altitude, time, and date for each entry you make, logging your entire trip via GPS, and making shared trips so multiple people can upload memories to the same log.

Allison Furfine's insight:

These apps are essential for travel. While I was abroad in Paris, I made sure to download apps that would help me navigate my way around the city when I was unfamiliar with it.
