One, Two, Cha Cha Cha…

This “Dancing With The Stars” inspired item is the newest (and very limited edition) item that has been added to the list.  If you are a Chelsea Kane fan you will recognize these as the shoes she wore on the show:

Officially Gowalla has stated that you can find this item when you “check-in to places where you get your groove on”.  So go out and find your Gowalla groove.  Not only is the item inspired by Chelsea, you can also find her and follow her on Gowalla here.

He’s a Daytripper…

If you are like me, you love travel shows.   It’s a way to virtually explore places you have never been, and maybe even add new places to your list of locations to visit. One of my favorite travel shows is called The Daytripper, with Chet Garner.

Not only is Chet the host of the show, but he is also an avid Gowallaphile like the rest of us.  So if you are from Texas, or just in town for SXSW, make sure to follow Chet in his adventures and at the same time pick up some of his one-of-a-kind custom “Daytripper” pins along the way.

Currently there are 11 trips, but Chet is busy filming Season #3 so I’m sure there will be more to come.
