1. Find somewhere to pitch up with Hipcamp
We’re all familiar with the Airbnb concept: renting private homes, directly from the owner, for your holiday or weekend away. Hipcamp
does something similar, but instead of homes, you rent a patch of grass. The website, first launched for California but now USA-wide, is a platform for campers to connect with landowners across the country and find the perfect pitch. They list 2283 parks, 8789 campgrounds and 283,392 campsites in total, so you’ll never be short for somewhere to settle under canvas.
2. Enjoy accessible travel with Accommable
“To enable anyone to go anywhere” is the mission of Accomable founders Martyn and Srin. The pair met through a support group for children with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) – a disease that has them both wheelchair bound. In 2015, they launched Accomable: a website listing accessible holiday rentals around the world, with detailed access information on each property, the locality and nearby services – an invaluable source for anyone travelling with a disability.
3. Take better travel photos with Snapseed
With smartphone cameras now sporting 4K high definition capabilities, you’re going to need some decent software to fine-tune your travel photographs. Snapseed
(available on Android and iOS) is the perfect travelling photographer's companion: open your image and choose from a selection of presets (the HDR effect is one of our favourites), or fine-tune your photo using the detailed options. You can alter the ambiance, structure, saturation, contrast and more to make your photo Instagram-ready.
