PLUS ONE

Get a local’s perspective

Most of us travel these days and often know people abroad; but if you’re going somewhere you don’t know, it’s easy to waste time seeing the wrong places, getting lost or ending up in tourist traps; My Plus One attempt to solve these problems, and to make travelling easier and more affordable for busy people like myself
