This 18th virtual trip spans from June to August 2012 and unlocked 12 new badges in Montreal Qc, Trois-Rivieres Qc, Toronto On, Tampa Bay FL, Schenectady NY and Bethlehem PA.
Having unlocked many Foursquare badges, most of the basic non-sponsored ones, and many that are inaccessible (mostly because they’ve been retired) and now I have to wait for new ones to be created. This was the case with my latest West Coast & European virtual trip which after a while each earned me 10 badges bringing my total to 170.
My first virtual trip to New York scored me 10 Foursquare badges over 2 days. I’ve since accomplished many other such online expeditions; in Chicago, in Pennsylvania, California and a few more to NYC – each with the primary purpose of unlocking more Foursquare badges. There are still many original and new badges to unlock in this area: Gossip Girl, Douchebag, Gym Rat and Dog’s best friend. I unlocked 9 badges during this trip.
