Searching for “travel apps” in the App Store can present an overwhelming number of options, all touting the best ways to plan, share and remember your treasured travel experience. But there are far fewer apps that cater to niche travelers, particularly female solo travelers. Chirpey is a mobile app that does just that: empowers female travelers to connect and explore, all with a vote of confidence and support from their peers.

 

Female travelers can download Chirpey for free, then they can create an account using email or Facebook. Chirpey requires a few steps and profile analysis to verify all members to ensure the safety of its users.

 

Once users have the app, they can join already-established “flocks” of travelers, or create their own flock based on certain interests or destinations. Members can search the “chatter” page to find like-minded travelers visiting the same destinations or regions. Post a question, suggest a meetup or share tips about a location. Each thread has information about the topic, a discussion page, a displayed list of members and the option to leave feedback about the subgroup.

 

Current flocks have already been created in many destinations in Southeast Asia (Taiwan, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Myanmar), South Korea and Israel.

 

With a strong and growing online community, travelers can also connect via Chirpey’s Facebook group.

Under $100: Lyon, France

Somewhere between Paris, Provence and the border with Switzerland is the charming riverside city of Lyon, a burgeoning culinary capital in a country with one of the world’s best cuisines. Lyon’s reputation as a food destination grew within the past decade, and visitors flock to the less-crazed and friendlier town for a more laid-back approach to French cuisine.

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
