Travelling is cathartic for many people, it is a release of stress or it is the accomplishment of a life long dream/ambition to visit a city that has inspired you. For some people, the experience is life changing and they become inspired to document the feelings and emotions that they are going through before, during and after the trip.

One of the best features of travel itinerary apps is that most of them are crowd sourced. Therefore, you know you are travelling to a location/sight that is popular with other tourists. This will help you maximise your travelling experience.
Most travel journal apps help you write your journal by providing you with ideas that will inspire you.
Travellers like to remember their favourite trips. As time passes, small details of the trips may be forgotten in favour of the major moments. Making a note of these small moments will ensure that you don’t forget them.
While many travel diary apps encourage you to share your experiences, they do offer the option of private entries.
Most travel diary apps are designed in English. However, most top apps will allow you to change the language of the app into your language of choice.
Most travel diary apps are free. Most will also offer you an option of upgrading to a premium service or will offer in-app purchases to upsell certain app functionality.
