    I recently went abroad with my Lumia 930. Thankfully I bought it unlocked. Wifi is not as prevalent or free as you think!

    I used these apps A LOT:

    Here+ Maps - without a data plan it was al life saver!!!!! Downloaded maps
    MS Translator - works offline as well - great for reading menus and street signs with the camera!
    Camera (MS built in) obviously!

    I did get a SIM which made the first two more handy but then these following much more useful

    Currency Converter

    Anyone else - what do you use when you travel?

    Here and Drive + are indispensable. Translator served me well abroad. Tons of pics and that is where Lumia Firmware really shines.

    This go 'round (I'm in the middle of a month long tour of the western US) I'm using the heck out of OneNote. I got hyper-organized and stashed tons of info in OneNote: hotel reservations, addresses, phone numbers, etc., sights to see with hyperlinks to websites for info, PDF guides and brochures dropped right in that city's page, maps, et al.

    Best part is it is not only on your phone and laptop, but can be shared out to anyone else traveling in your party.

    The universal nature of some Apps just makes them so effective. Do all your prep work at home on the PC by filling OneNote and saving destinations to your collections in Here and access it on your phone as you go.
