AirVisual is an app that is available for both Apple and Android, and it tells the air quality for locations around the world. It follows the AQI Scale, which is a scale that runs from 0-500 to measure the air quality. The higher the AQI number is, the more dangerous it is to breathe in.
Although I am lucky that I live in Hawaii (where the air quality is pretty good), there are many people around the world who are not as fortunate. In many places in Asia such as China, the AQI Scale can reach over 200. Breathing in this type of air can shorten your life span if you breathe it in for the long term, so it really is important to know how the air quality is (and do whatever you can do avoid places with poor air quality).
Another reason that AirVisual is a helpful guide is that it is constantly up to date, so you can check whether it may be better to go out at a certain time or not. Although it is unlikely to change so fast, there may be times that are forecasted to have better air quality than others.
I wouldn’t say that I use AirVisual on a daily basis when I am a home, but if I am on vacation, it is something I like to check in on. If you have never explored the air quality around where you live, or you are just curious about the rest of the world, I would download AirVisual and be sure to check it periodically!
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
