Gowalla is a location based social network where users "check in" to spots using smart phones (Iphone, Android, Blackberry, etc;). Users can share pictures, stories and knowledge of these spots with others as well as create "trips" by listing up to 20 spots with different themes... like nature, history or landmarks. Users can then use these trips as city guides... completing the trips by "checking in" to the various spots on the trip's itinerary using their smart phones. Gowalla has recently updated their website, changing their focus even more to travel and adding guides to major cities around the world.
I am proud to say that Gowalla contacted me to create featured trips for them in their Stockholm Guide! I created two, both aimed for first time visitors to Stockholm and based on a three day visit to the city (i.e. long weekend). The first trip is for visitors coming during the summertime and the other for visitors coming during the cooler months (click on links to see trips). I've tried to design the trips so that visitors get to see the most well known Stockholm landmarks and museums as well as a bit of shopping, some great restaurants and authentic Stockholm life. There is, of course, much much more to see in Stockholm... but these trips are a good start!
