Posted in Labels: , ,

This post is a gift from my part to my loyal American readers. The majority of the readers of this blog are Americans, i can say that its about 70 per cent of the readership of this blog comes from the US. i always take this fact into consideration and whenever i stumble upon something that is related to US than i would straight forward post it here. So thank you very much my American readers and the same gratitude goes to all the other readers from different countries and continents , i am so thankful to all of you for your loyalty and i hope i will always live up to your expectations.





Today’s post is about Smart Traveler . Smart Traveler has been designed by The United States Department of State with the aim of helping American citizens worldwide “to see  and access the updated official country information, travel alerts, travel warnings, maps, U.S. embassy locations, and more”. This app can also be used by any other person from any other country. I find it very educational for it is packed with a tremendous treasure of information about countries around the world. It is a useful app not only for travelers but for any person interested in learning about different countries.
