This 2nd virtual trip through New England covers my Foursquare activities from September through December 2012 in New York, Vermont, Maine and New Hampshire.
My overseas virtual trips usually have me hopping all over the globe. This one in particular was concentrated strictly in Europe between August and December 2012 in the hunt for new city badges, and leveling up a few expertise badges.
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.
It seems like yesterday when I published a post about my 300th Foursquare badge, but that was in last August already. Since then, many city and partner badges have popped up and I’ve managed to capture most of them, but not all.

300 Foursquare badges don’t really give you anything, but it’s fun and interesting. As you know it’s my guilty pleasure to hunt down Foursquare badges all over the world: finding and following instructions, discovering new places, the right times where to do what in order to unlock a new badge.
My 13th East coast virtual trip turned into my very 1st Montreal only virtual trip. This time I mainly spent my efforts in an attempt to level up my “expertise badges”. In doing so I was able to unlock 10 badges between November 16th and 21st of 2011. This is the first time I’ve earned so many badges year home.

I unlocked another 10 badges on this trip between August and October 2011 in New York, Edison NJ, Pittsburg PA and Montreal Qc. Foursquare is releasing less and less badges and making some of those that are released much tougher to get. Moreover they’ve made check-in rules a little tougher on virtual displacements. You use to be able to check into 2 different cities within the same hour if you were in the same time zone, but now they seem to take into account average travel time between locations.
These are the ongoing Foursquare virtual voyages of Sam. With the recent change in Foursquare’s point system and having changed jobs a few months back (now with many players in the office) my interest to check-in has been renewed.
