Guy riding a bike and doing flips

Feedback from a user: How using a real time location sharing can be helpful when things don’t go as planned?

Going out with a bike on a summer afternoon is one of the greatest pleasures. On holidays it becomes an essential activity for sport lovers, like Julio, one of our beloved users. Julio knows that the physical activity of biking couples well with the chance to discover some places that otherwise would remain hidden, such as mountain tops, getting through the fog in the forests or surrounding a lake. Riding a bike means speed, freedom, beautiful landscapes and of course, getting fit.  

“My son usually goes cycling before going to work, even if we do not go together we like to be connected so I can see his whereabouts, how far he has traveled and feel calm while he goes out to the nature with the bike. Parents love to share experiences with their children even through an app”, says Julio.

Not only is it nice to share same interest, but it can also result very helpful. Julio recently explained us how using Wave helped him to overcome a bike accident:

“I opened a wave one day that my son was going out with the bike and I saw that he stopped at one point for a long time and then went to a gas station. There he texted me on the Wave chat to inform me that he had to fix the wheel of the bike, however it did not go well. After a while he stopped again and texted me he needed me to get and pick him because the wheel was broken again and he did not have time enough to fix it before returning home”, says Julio.

“Therefore, I opened the map on Wave and I saw exactly where he was, I got the directions to get to him and picked him up with my 4×4. It was super easy to arrive there. Without Wave, I would have been more complicated for me to know where he was and understand his explanations”, reports Julio.

In the nature there are no clear signs to indicate how to get to a place or how long it takes to reach one place. It is also not easy to arrange a meeting point as you could do in a city, so with Wave you can locate all those who go by bike in real time, see where they are and how to reach them.

Wave is an app to share your location temporarily and privately with whoever you want. This way you can open a map to follow your friends footsteps and feel connected and safe as at any moment they can identify where you are. On the map the participants can spot each other, get directions, set a meeting point and chat.

“When he goes out we open a Wave and we both share the location in real time so he knows where I am and I can see that he is fine, where he is going to and if he takes too long to return home. Wave is the best application I have found to be connected with my son without picking up the phone and calling him, as it does not disturb us when it comes to going with the bike and it allows me to help him whenever I can”, says Julio.

User stories make us very happy because we see how useful Wave is for helping people to be connected and feel safe anywhere in the world practising their favourite activity. Here you have some other stories to get you ready for the next adventure!

How to plan an affordable getaway – 6 brilliant tips

An expert traveler knows how to prepare a getaway in the best possible way. There are several options and with the following tips you will see that planning your trip can be easier and cheaper than you may think, without having to give up going on vacation. However, it requires something from you. Look at the list that we have prepared and enjoy!

Take the most of the stopovers

Cheaper international flights usually do not arrive directly to your destination, especially if you are more than 4 hours away from your starting point. The stopovers can be an opportunity to extend your getaway to two or more cities, without needing to sleep in them. If you are traveling around Europe, many of your intercontinental flights will probably connect in cities such as Frankfurt, Milan or Madrid. In the case of traveling from South America to the United States, it is probably that you stop in Atlanta or New York;  if you travel from Europe to Asia, visit Istanbul or Doha, while from Australia to the northern hemisphere you’ll probably stop somewhere in Singapore, Shanghai or Seoul.

Take the time you have and take a trip around a city you did not expect, while saving money avoiding a direct flight. Try the local food at street markets or buy sandwiches and go for a walk. The trip has just begun!

There are several good flights and hotel search engines such as Kayak, Trivago or some a bit less known such as Hoteloogle.

Choose wisely where to sleep

If your trip includes more than one city or town, try to narrow down the cities in which you are going to sleep and establish a base point from which to travel around the region or the country. This will save you a lot of money, since local buses are very cheap and traveling constantly from one part of the country to another incurs in more expenses, less rest and much time wasted looking for a new place to check in.

In addition, some web pages renting cheap homes like Airbnb, Homestay, Spotahome charge you a fee for each booking, so do some hostels, so the less places you choose to sleep, the more money you’ll save.

In terms of accommodation, you probably already know the different options for renting apartments, hostels, couch surfing or hotels, depends on the quality of the site where you want to spend the night. However, first investigate the areas you are going to visit, for example in all big cities the business areas have a large variety of hotels that are empty during the summer, in the absence of business meetings. Therefore they offer great discounts and are always well connected by public transport with the city.

No more calling, no more ‘Where are you’s?’

Overseas calls to your friends, your family or the host cost a lot of money and can give you an unpleasant surprise when you get home and see the bill. However, when you travel in group it is easy to get lost, as people usually split for a while to visit different spots in the city, or some of you need a rest while others are more willing to continue sightseeing. In those situations, connecting to others is needed and the best way to do so is using Internet and taking the most of the best apps to travel in the market.

If you are traveling in Europe, you are lucky because they have recently eliminated roaming, the fee charged for using a foreign operator, and you can use the Internet to the fullest without paying more than at home. In other places you normally have better fares to use Internet rather than calling.

Your best option is to download for free Wave Application, an app available for both Android and iOS, that allows you share your location privately with your contacts in a real time map. Forget about learning how to pronounce the street of the hostel, just check the map and see where your friends are in the city and set a meeting point to gather in the centre.

Wave is the best application to share your location privately with any of your contacts, when you need it most.

Set alerts for your favourite destination

An inveterate traveler will tell you that the destination is the least important part of the trip so if you think of going to Paris you will probably spend twice as much as you would spend in Toulouse, also in France. However, if you really want to visit a certain city, set alerts on the phone through different flight comparators and just wait to receive the best offer.

Prices of the flights change constantly up and down and if you already know in which range they move, you will be able to take an offer without wasting your time comparing prices on the Internet.

Share everything you can

 

Sharing is living, it is the motto in many countries and it is also an excellent way to save. The options are unlimited, you can go from one city to another using carpooling services such as Blablacar, or staying with people who live there with Couchsurfing or HomeStay. However, there is more you can do: search for travel buddies on Meetup to get discounts on group tickets for museums, touristic tours or even make a group to rent a boat, it is always cheaper to rent it in group.

Eat at home at least once a day

Plan one or two meals at your rented home, let’s say breakfast and lunch. Eating out is always more expensive than preparing a meal at home, especially if you cook pasta, salad or sandwiches. In addition, if you travel in group sharing the expenses of the grocery will make you find ridiculously cheap to eat well at home. If you are sleeping in a hotel, cool food such as sandwiches are a good choice to prepare in your room.

You may think that street food is cheap, however it is usually not enough to save money more than eating at home. Other advantage of this routine is helping your stomach to the new food, if you are in a country with a very different cuisine, you can rest one day from the spice or the new flavours, cooking something similar to what you usually eat.

Now you are all set! Try these tips and enjoy your getaway!

The beauty of holding the balance on the board, follow the wave ( 😉 ) and control your body, smell the salty sea and observe the surroundings are some of the reasons surf is so enjoyable. There are many valid destinations around the world to surf, depending on the weather conditions, the season, the number of surfers who will be queuing to hunt a wave and the landscape.

If you are enjoying the waves, it is most likely that your friends are on a nearby beach or a few waves away. It’s always quite difficult to find friends on the beaches full of people and umbrellas. The coolest way to avoid getting lost is to open Wave Application.

Once you are all set, take a look at the list of the best surfing destinations in the world. They are the result of the comments of the most experts, the beauty of the landscape and the regularity of the good waves. Check them out and get inspired:

AUSTRALIA

Palm Beach surf destination

We start in Australia, a paradise for new wave lovers, since in practically every area there are beaches with wind and nice swell conditions. If you are a beginner, Palm Beach is the best option to start thanks to its several schools for beginners.

If you’ve spent a few years on the board and need a little more action, Bilgola Beach can be your favorite destination. Located in the northern part of the country, it is a long beach that blows a gentle southeast wind and allows a prolonged swell with waves of 1 meter high or more.

Just for adventurers, Superbank Beach is famous all over the world for its vast wild waves and solid walls where surfers crowd to prove their bravery. This beach is located on the Golden Coast, a spectacularly good area for surfers by waves and swell and for the length of its beaches.

UNITES STATES

Pipeline famous surf wave

Nantucket in Massachusetts is where beginners can find their paradise, thank to its gentle waves and its location, as it is protected from the south wind. You will find several spots along the coast to practice.

Hawaii is THE destination for the US surfers, because it offers good conditions and beautiful scenarios. The mother of all waves is in Pipeline and you can find a strong west swell following a strong north swell. Three large reefs crown this beach and cause waves of up to 6 meters. In addition, the tubes that are formed are fun and a challenge reserved only for the best.

EUROPE

To start off with your footing in the surf world, San Sebastian in the Bay of Biscay, can be the best combination of gastronomic holidays with soft beaches and a vibrant Spanish atmosphere. Many surf schools are grouped along the coastline that offers consistent waves but also has very nice protected caves. It is quite windy though.

Intermediate swells with strong wind are the characteristics that make Gwithian Beach in Cornwall, the suitable destination for those intermediate surfers who want a bit of challenge without risking their board.

The Atlantic is not an easy battlefield, and in northern Europe it can be extremely cold. If this does not discourage you, try to go to the beautiful emerald island, Ireland. One of the most consistent and best quality reef jumps in Ireland is The Peak, a benchmark for the more experienced in Bundoran Beach. It has a long swell from the southeast and forms barriers with high and wild side walls.

ASIA

In Asia the coasts of Indonesia are famous and in the internet forums the options are very varied. You have probably heard about Bali with fear and admiration, but among its many beaches it does have spots for beginners with surf schools around. The best known is Kuta beach, a long sandy beach that sends gentle waves with a slight swell. Fun and very cool to practice balance.

For experts on riding waves, it’s recommended to go near Sumatra, to the islands Mentawai. The advantage of this place is that you can go with few friends to surf without waiting queues, as there are so many islands and beaches with good conditions that the surfers are very spread out. It has strong winds and swell, not recommended for beginners.

AFRICA

South Africa is home to the best surf spots in the continent, as hosts many schools for beginners. One of the most beautiful beaches and with a consistent but gentle wave is Unzumbe.

Also in this country, there is one of the most recognized destinations in the world: J Bay or Jeffrey’s bay. Nowhere have we seen the precise water formations, such as supertubes, vertical walls or albatrosses. It has a very definite and constant swell and the waves can reach several meters height. The dominant winds are then offshore from the west to the southwest. If you feel like going to visit another country, Senegal offers wild conditions and a stunning landscape, especially in Les Almadies, that has reef breaks and consistent swell.

Do you dare to try some of these places? Let us know your own favourite spots!

Summer in the city? Check out the best plans to do!

Ah, that time of the year when cities get empty, people fill their trunks and leave the city. And they go. So you stay with a few friends thinking about how you are going to enjoy your neighbourhood with such calm. You can park, you do not have to make a reservation in your favourite restaurant and you have more time to dedicate to those friends who also stay in the city.

When it seems there is nobody, it is the best time to enjoy the atmosphere, especially if you live in a very crowded city. Here you have a couple of tips to enjoy the summer nights:

Make plans with your colleagues

Bands In Town App

If you’ve stayed in the city because you’re working, your colleagues are sure to be eager to enjoy the time when the rest of the world is on vacation. Now you can do those plans you’ve been talking about for a long time: try that sushi, watch that movie, go party or go karting. Choose the activity that you like and take advantage to know your colleagues a little better. With apps to find plans in your city, like Bands in Town, a complete app where you will find the latest concerts nearby, follow your stars and receive a notification whenever something you might fancy happens in your neighbourhood. Probably, you have heard already about Eventbrite, but if not it is definitely worth a try, because it releases events near you, such as wine tasting, Star Wars meetings, and other activities that will kick you out of the routine.

Organize a dinner out

Wave Application

Terraces will be empty, so normally you won’t have to ask for a reservation in advance. They will even have room in that trendy restaurant that you can not go without asking for a table two weeks in advance.

To organize get-togethers, try Wave Application, our localisation app used by millions of people around the world. Wave allows you to share your location with your friends, in real time. Open a wave, select on the map a restaurant that you like and everyone can see where it is, how to get there and where others are on the way.

Enjoy the nature doing outdoor sports

Bikemap

Take advantage and take the bike, the mountain will cease to look like the main street on sale and will be a quiet place, full of life, colors and fresh air. We know that when the sun comes up the natural places near the cities are filled with hikers and sportsmen like you, who want to get out of the daily hustle and bustle. But in summer, when others are on vacation, they are better enclaves than ever. You can bathe in the river, make excursions and go in group with your friends with the bicycle. You can open a map with them in Wave to follow your route and not lose, even if you go faster or quieter than them.

Bikemap app has routes, more than 800 thousand around the world, that can inspire you and your friends to take the bike next weekend. It’s a very comprehensive app, thanks to the ratings of the thousands of users who have bet on testing the app in the last year.

Enjoy a local festival of music or theater

Those kinds of plans that you love, like listening to local groups, participating in an improvised play or watching a dance performance on the street can only be done in summer. Town halls and bars in the city often offer many outdoor activities in summer, taking into account those who stay in the city.

Do not forget that summer is the time of the sales, both in clothes and appliances as in many activities, beauty treatments or gyms. It’s the time to go shopping without waiting for queues and spending a lot of money.

On the other hand, if the heat does not let you breathe before the sun goes down, you can go to one of the several municipal swimming pools in your city. Surely if they are big you can enjoy bathing in an adult pool, while the children are in another part of the park. In addition, sports clubs often have tennis, football and basketball courts where you can have some fun.

Summer evenings 

Hey Let’s App

Go to an exhibition, a theatre or a museum and let yourself try different things. In big cities there are always summer events at the opera and probably some theater plays are outdoor, which is really nice.

Those activities are usually free, but you can watch the new events through the app Hey Lets, in which users can also upload events they know are happening, among a dozen of other sources of information.
