Are you planning for a vacation or road trip, but you don’t know where to start? Perhaps, thinking of your itinerary already overwhelms you. So instead, you decide to just postpone your trip and do it some other time…again.
Most of us want a break from our stressful day-to-day lives, and going on a vacation will surely pamper those tiring moments. So how do you start then? Well, the first thing to do is decide where you want to go, and from there, you compose your itinerary.
With the help of Apple Maps, you can create a list of the places where you want to go. You can add your favorite routes, restaurants, hotels, and even the places where you want to eat your breakfast! As soon as you create this list, you can now plan which places to go first from day 1 and until the day you go back home again.
With just a few taps on your phone, we are certainly sure that making your road trip guides will be the easiest thing to do. So grab your iPhone now, and let’s dive into your iPhone’s My Guides!
