It’s pretty simple (hence the name).  Make it to Austin (1), checkin at Gowalla HQ (2), and pick up this pin (3).  See it really is as easy as 1, 2, and 3.


Refined Gowallabies

Never one to turn down a drink, especially one consumed at a vineyard or wine bar, some Gowallaphiles have a perfectly tuned wine tasting palate.  Break out your corkscrew and wine knife, and then check in at three of your favorite (or just convenient) wine bars or vineyards to receive the “Sommelier” pin.

Whether it be for business or pleasure, check in at 3 different hotels and receive this “Room Service” pin.  It took me a while to figure out what it was, but even the key card slot on the door is smiling!  Gowalla has that affect on people…

Gowalla Rocks

Get your lighters up and…ROCK ON!  As we all know, Gowalla is based in the “Live Music Capital of the World”, so it’s no surprise the wonderful folks over there created this rockin’ creation.  Check-in to 3 different live music venues to pick up this “Roadie” pin.

For All You Gowalla Sports Fans Out There…

There are hundreds of featured and custom stadium and arena stamps all over the world.  There are an even greater number of local high school, college, and community sport locations to add to your virtual passport.  If you check-in to your favorite sports venue 5 times you’ll receive this “Superfan” pin:

So get out, Gowalla, and cheer your little hearts out…and at the same time let everyone know that you are a SUPERFAN!

Whether you are cheesed-off or chuffed to bits about it, The Royal Wedding will be taking place, and you can do abso-bloody-lutely nothing to stop it.

So if you’re in “The Big Smoke” during the festivities embrace it and pick up this special “The Royal Wedding” stamp while visiting “Westminster Abbey“.

There are many featured locations around London, so go out and see what the city has to offer.

So what do you do if you aren’t anywhere near London?  Check in at any location where you are watching the event and mention “Royal Wedding” to have this festively designed pin added to your virtual passport.
