Google’s mobile app trip planner to end in August — UPHINDIA

San Francisco: Google is putting an end to its trip planner mobile app – Google Trips.

“Support for the Google Trips app will end on August 5. Until then, you’ll still be able to access and email all of your trip reservations and notes as normal,” the company wrote in its support page on Tuesday.

After Google Trips is put to rest, the search engine giant would allow users to find the Google Trips app features in Search and Maps.

“To find personal trips information in Search, such as notes and saved places, you must sign in to your Google Account,” the post said.

Oahu – The Gathering Place — Cheap US Travel

Things to do on Oahu

A colleague recently asked for my advice on planning a special trip to Hawaii for her 40th wedding anniversary next year.  The couple considers this a “once in a lifetime trip” and they don’t want to miss any “must sees.”  What a wonderful place to celebrate a 40th wedding anniversary!  I’ve visited all of the major islands over the years and a trip to Hawaii can be done on a budget.  All of the islands have their own personality.  Today, I’d like to share some of my thoughts on Oahu.

Oahu is called the “gathering island” for a reason.  It is the most populous island in the chain and it receives the most visitors.  Honolulu International Airport brings people from around the world to the island each and every day of the year. Although you could easily spend several days exploring the Honolulu/Waikiki area and get by using the public bus system, taxis, or Ubers, I recommend renting a car and traveling outside of the Honolulu/Waikiki at least 1 day, 2 if you have the time and money.

These are some of my favorite things to see and do when visiting Oahu.

The ultimate locals guide to Polignano al Mare — REIGN

The scent of warm fig trees, the salty breeze, golden limestone at sunset, Polignano is hard to put into words, it’s a state of mind.

It was my first time in ‘Sud Italia’, after living in Milan for more than 12 years it was well and truly time to explore real Italy. We weren’t really drawn to Apulia for any particular reason we just happened to find great flights to Bari and decided fairly last minute to go, after researching a few towns and airbnb (as seasoned airbnb addicts our travel research usually starts in reverse, finding great airbnb first and then researching the surrounding area and transport), Polignano al Mare just looked insanely beautiful. Even though we worried about it being very touristic and overcrowded we decided to go and I’m so glad we did!

Hotel Review: The Phoenix Hotel Yogyakarta — travelux

The Phoenix Hotel Yogyakarta is a luxury hotel in the culturally interesting second largest city on Java in Indonesia. In this extensive review, I’ll explain why I really like the hotel with a historic touch!

Prices in Yogyakarta are incredibly low to a level that is really hard to believe. Even a luxury hotel like the Phoenix Hotel Yogyakarta can be had for less than 50 Euro per night, which is … crazy.

  • Classification: Five Stars
  • Room Category: Legacy Pool View Room
  • Month of Stay: May

I had booked a Legacy Room and was upgraded to a Legacy Pool View Room thanks to my Le Club Accor Gold Status. The property is located a bit outside of the historic city center, but you can make it there in a few minutes with a car.
