California – the Great Trek

Today we set out on the first day of a three week journey covering more than 1300 miles from Los Angeles to Vancouver, Canada. We'll be driving up along Route 1, the coastal road that eventually crosses over into Canada at Seattle. It's a long journey and one that we deliberately didn't plan. Instead we downloaded a whole load of California travel apps and we'll be using them as we go along to decide what to do next.

The thing is that every year we plan our vacation down to the smallest of details which left no room for surprises. This year, we decided that, as we had the IPhone and IPad and because those travel apps are so convenient and easy to use as well as being cheap, to basically wing the vacation and decide where to go as we drove along. After all, it's never to late for a bit of adventure!

Choosing the travel apps

The trip wasn't entirely random choice. We did spend a few days researching travel apps that we could use along the route. Believe me, there are hundreds! After the first couple of days searching the web, the Apple apps store we finally realized that we were being exposed to just too much information. So we chose one site that reviewed travel apps for dozens of locations along the way, 10TravelApps.com, and used that as our reference point for travel apps information and reviews.

We made a short list of about 50 apps and downloaded them from the Apple apps store. I know it sounds like a lot, but 1300 miles is a long distance to cover and there's an awful lot to see. Also, lots of the apps were free and even those that cost money were ridiculously cheap. I think that the most we ever paid was 18.99$ for the Nav4D California app which is an excellent GPS navigation system that we ended up using a lot. I have to say, that using this app is so much easier than a regular road atlas of gas station maps – absolutely brilliant.

Off we go

So, here we are. We've picked up the car from the rental agency, stocked up on food and drink and are now on the Rosa Park Freeway (Route 10) on our way West to Santa Monica where we pick up Route 1 the Pacific Coast Highway. First stop is… I have no idea. As soon as we hit Route 1, I'll open an app and make a decision. Maybe Santa Barbara – who knows?
