As I mentioned in my last blog post, I have finally returned home after 3 long months in Africa. For the last nearly two weeks I’ve been doing my best to lay low, enjoy the company of my loved ones and catch up on the billions of emails that have gone unresponded to. I wasn’t expecting to be heading out on the road, or having any adventures until at least the new year. That was until I read a particular email from a brand new app company called TripleSpot. They asked me to partner with them and now it looks like I’ll be headed out on an adventure sooner than expected.
That’s right… Chicago!
My boyfriend and I will be driving from Toronto to Chicago starting early Friday morning, taking in as many sights and sounds along the way. We’ll then spend 2 nights in Chicago jamming in as much as we can in the day and a half that we’re there, before turning around and heading back to Toronto on Sunday.
If you have any suggestions of what we should take in both along the road trip route or in Chicago, please let me know as soon as possible. Remember – we’re leaving in 3 days! Also – download TripleSpot! It’s available in the iPhone and Android stores. This way you’ll be able to follow the journey in real-time, and make comments!
TripleSpot is the latest and greatest app that will help make trip planning easier. They dub themselves “the social guidebook” and claim their app helps you capture, organize and discover amazing experiences and unexpected places.
When I first downloaded TripleSpot and started playing around with it, I couldn’t help but think it was a wonderful combination of Instagram, Roadtrippers and Foursquare. However, unlike Instagram – it’s not about selfies as the app is not about the user. Rather TripleSpot is about the amazing places the user can find and share with the world – whether it be on an amazing adventure, or in your own backyard! When you decide to take a picture of a great place – you’re creating a ‘spot.’ Each spot can be organized into lists – so you can be sure to follow my TO2Chicago and Mellyboo in Chicago lists while I’m off on my weekend adventure. Be sure to follow me – my username is of course mellyboo and I’ll of course give you a follow back to see all your exciting spots!
Windy City… Here I come!
