If you work in an office, no matter how much you love your job, when summer hits, it can be tempting to want to escape beyond the four walls of your company building.
For some, the local park at lunch, in the sunshine (fingers crossed!) will suffice. Others dream of further-flung destinations: the peaks of Kilimanjaro, the geysers of Yellowstone, the glorious beaches of Malibu... but real life (weddings every other weekend, young children, a tight budget) might mean that those dream adventure travel plans remain firmly rooted in our imaginations, not reality.
Thanks to the exciting and inspiring travel apps accessible on our smartphones and tablets, that no longer needs to be the case. With just a few taps on our phone, we can escape the confines of our workday without even leaving the desk.
