Oh how I love to travel.

One of the tricky parts of travel, however, is staying organized.  From the moment you book your airfare to the meetings, dinners, parties and everything in between- it can be a bear to keep track of it all.  What’s a traveler to do?

In steps TripCase.

sxsw interactive 2014 jen knoedlIn the attached video, I am experimenting with the new app during SXSW in Austin, TX.  With so many options and events, I knew I could use all the help I could get in organizing all my trip details and information.

Success!  TripCase helped me to organize the details of my trip all in one spot.  Both manually, and by forwarding confirmation emails, I added items to my “SXSW Trip”.  Voila!  Everything in one cohesive app- that I can share with family and friends.

And I loved that when my flight was delayed, TripCase alerted me plus my family and friends that I invited to “follow” my trip details. That’s pretty cool. tripcase travel app iphone android jen knoedl

TripCase has also integrated seat maps for airplanes, weather maps for wherever you are or wherever you are headed.  Plus they took the extra step of incorporating driving directions- no more cut and paste!  Gotta like that.

If you are an active traveler, or even just a casual traveler- try getting yourself organized with TripCase.  It’s free for iPhone, Android and other smart phones.

Taxi App Video Review @HailoChicago @JenTravelsLife #Travel



I rely on cabs to get around Chicago… a lot.  When it’s cold, or hot or rush hour, or I’m wearing heels… I use the Hailo taxi app.  Co-founded by 3 taxi drivers,  Hailocab Chicago is a free app that pairs riders and drivers together.  The rating system allows for accountability on both sides and makes the small up charge ($1.50 – $3) seem worth it.  It an app I use a lot and recommend to others when traveling through Chicago.

PS:  Use code JENCHICAGO to save $5 on your next trip.

Addison Red Line: Hop Off And Stay A Few Hours #ThingsToDo



I love the CTA.  I really do.  I’m not there with the bus yet, but the train is cool.  I really don’t like driving myself in the city; it stresses me out.  I’d rather snap Instragram shots out of the back of the cab window.

So this past Sunday, I grabbed my friend Michelle to try a new restaurant in Boystown.  While I was there, I decided to create my first travel video with the iPhone iMovie app.  (It’s $5 on iTunes and I think it’s totally worth it.)  I also created my first Vine video with our bacon-wrapped dates.  I was on a video roll!

There are obviously a lot more things to do in this area and I’d love to add your suggestions to my Gogobot Custom Guide of things to do from the Addison Red Line Stop.

What am I missing?
