A Personal City Guide - in Your Pocket

I love to visit new places. But I hate to waste time wondering where to go when I get there. Even more frustrating is wanting to visit a particular place and then not being able to find it. Local inhabitants often do not have the answer. Sometimes you have to ask several people before you find someone who actually lives there. There is an answer to this problem – GPS Guided Travel Articles.

The GPS Guided Travel Article

A GPS Guided Travel Article is an article written by a travel writer or blogger who has visited the city in question and then related their experiences. This will include sights they have seen, activities they have enjoyed and places they have eaten. Even more useful for the first-time visitor will be hints on avoiding possible problems. For example, you can avoid long queues at popular sights by buying tickets online in advance. These articles have GPS co-ordinates embedded in them and a map of the route the writer has described in the original article.
It sounds easy and it is. For this reason, I am happy not just to write travel guided articles but also to promote the concept on my own blog .

How to Get Your Guided Travel Article

Visit the website GPSMyCity where you will find thousands of these articles from cities all over the world. For a small fee you can download the app of a city you want to visit. Once you have the app on the phone that is all you will need for a successful visit. The app will show you exactly where you are on the map and guide you from place to place. It could not be easier.
The original travel article is available from this website free of charge. Once downloaded you can read it when you wish without having to be connected to the internet. But it does make sense to upgrade this travel article to a GPS-guided article by paying a small fee and you are all set for a hassle free visit.

About the Author - Valery Collins
London, England

I have been addicted to travel since I was three years old and escaped from the confines of the family home and set off for Windsor – on foot. After qualifying as a solicitor I took a gap year and worked as a tour leader on a freelance basis. That was 20 years ago and I am still working as a tour leader. Over the years I have ridden camels, horses and an ostrich, walked and skied in mountains and followed the Inca trail and climbed towers and temples. I write honest reviews of my travels in the hope it will inspire others to follow in my footsteps.

While travelling I have always kept a diary and that was the basis of my first book about my experiences. Then I discovered blogging which is a great outlet for both my writing and my photography.

Recently I became a regular contributor to GPSMyCity and my city guides have been converted to Guided Travel Articles
