Well, whaddaya know? I won something. I usually never win anything, unless it’s a free night stay at a swanky prison cell. But I’m honored that I won the September 2015 Scholarship from Trover. If you don’t know what Trover is, check them out: TROVER. Trove is a new generation travel app that came highly recommended in my “Must Have Travel Apps” post.
