Are you traveling soon? If so, you may want to consider using Google Maps to plan it. Sounds bizarre, I know. Stay with me here and I’ll explain! You can create your own map, with pinned destinations & highlights, and it is automatically saved in your Google Drive. (Don’t have a Google account? Why not? Go to google.com and set one up.
