Madrid and Seattle Join the Gang of Cities with Foursquare Badges
This week in Singapore, we earned the city-specific Foursquare "Lion City" badge just for SIN. The geek in us got excited and we immediately began wondering if our next trip's destination also has its own badge. Well, if it doesn't now then it will soon, as Foursquare continues to expand the variety. Just this week, both Madrid and Seattle join the club.
It began with Chicago (Windy City Badge), then London, Paris, Istanbul, Atlanta, New Orleans, Singapore, Sao Paulo, Berlin and Tokyo.
How to get the badges: First, follow 4sqCities, and just to be safe, it wouldn't hurt to also follow the individual city lists here: Madrid, Seattle. Then travel to one or all of the cities and clickety-click to check-in to the places on the recommended lists. Five places earns the badge.
SPOILER ALERT! Here's the unlock text for each of the newest badges:
Post siesta, you meet up with friends and sip a clara (o dos). Next thing you know, you're wandering through Sol at five in the morning, feet aching, with a craving for churros con chocolate and no hope of catching el último Búho. ¡Mola mazo!
Kurt and Courtney. Tom and Meg. You’re in the city of sleepless nights and grunge glory days. Now down that frappuccino, find some flannel, and hang with the Fremont Troll until the rain passes – or the floating bridge floats away, whichever comes first.
Any guesses for their next cities? We've got Amsterdam and Sydney top our list, and hopefully we'll see sooner rather than later.
