Planning on Taking a Trip Soon? Check Out Gogobot #GogobotTravel!

As Hurricane Sandy bears down on us here on the East Coast one of the first things that crosses my mind is imagining a vacation! My idea of a vacation is one extreme or another. Sometimes I like a quick little weekend getaway to a B&B and other times I want a full blow vacation…sun, beach, fancy drinks and food and a plane ride to take me there.

T.J. and I went to Hawaii for our honeymoon. It was the first time I had travelled there and the second or third for him. I didn’t care how long the place ride was I was so excited to see this fantasy land first hand. It was an amazing two weeks. We went all out and no expense was spared. We stayed at five star hotels and ate the most amazing food on both the islands of Kauaii and Oahu. I need to go back…soon!

I was excited to learn about a website called Gogobot.

Gogobot, a social travel site that launched in 2010, is a place on the web you should know about. The company has racked up accolades including being named one of Time’s top sites of 2011 and winner of the 2010 Crunchie award for Best Design.

Gogobot’s big win is that it allows you to connect with your friends to get their advice on where to visit, what to eat, and where to stay when you travel. You can use the service to plan things ahead of time, or you can poll your friends on the fly.

So, of course I headed over to the site and immediately searched for the Kahala hotel in Oahu where we stayed during our first week on the island. It came right up and has twelve reviews. I would not think twice about staying there again. Five star resort all the way! Also need to grab a Hawaiian treat from Waiola Shaved Ice. While you are on the Gogobot site you can add everything you want to do on your trip while you are in planning mode.

What’s cool about the site is that I can add my own review {I did} and connect with others travelers and easily log in through Facebook or Twitter. It allows me to connect with other travelers and see what they though, get insider info on places to eat and visit too. I really like how easy the site is to navigate and compare prices. There is also a free app you can download on your phone taking the convenience anywhere you roam especially awesome when you are traveling. I remember T.J. and I buying books and travel guides before our trip and those things are bulky and heavy. Not convenient at all when you are on vacation. 🙂

Gogobot allows you to tap into the knowledge of your friends when planning a trip anywhere. You can find like-minded travelers and inspiration for your next vacation, creating easy-to-use wishlists you can return to again and again.

And when you are not in vacation mode or planning a trip, you can discover hidden gems in your own neighborhood for entertaining guests or a weekend staycation.

The best part? Every page on Gogobot is personalized. You can see reviews from your friends and people you are following at the top, which allows you to weed out the noise and fraudulent reviews that become a problem on other review sites. Check out Gogobot today!
