It's No Ride on Air Force One, but You Can Follow President Obama on Foursquare

March 26, 2013 at 10:12 AM | by | Comments (0)

With a 747 and a fleet of other airplanes, helicopters and bulletproof vehicles at his disposal, the President of the United States really gets around. One of the most traveled presidents in history is the current one, President Obama, and though it seems a challenge to keep up with his itinerary when he squeezes several countries and world capitals into a few days, The White House has made it very easy with Foursquare.

Thanks to the location-based social media app, The White House can create lists of Obama's stops and offer these lists to be "followed," so that traveling Foursquare users can "check in" to a venue and see if the President preceded them there. It's all very cool, and of course each location includes a tip or note on what Obama accomplished in each place, such as speaking about job values at a BBQ joint in North Carolina.

This week's Travel Cat comes from Jaunted reader Kelleye Bennett-Vinci, who spotted two Travel Cats frolicking in a major tourist spot. She explains:

Here is a shot of two kittens rolling around in the Temple of Artemis in Jerash, Jordan. Alas, this doesn’t show any of the prettier parts of the temple, but it shows the kittens.

And isn't that all we really need to see to make us want to go? The correct answer is yes.

The new Science Channel series An Idiot Abroad, which stars Ricky Gervais' sidekick Karl Pilkington, may get mixed reviews for Karl's antics, but the locations he visits are some of the most beautiful in the world.

The premise of the show is that Ricky and his pal Stephen Merchant send Karl to the Seven Wonders of the World where he reluctantly immerses himself in local culture, complaining all the way. He may get annoying, but the scenery is ideal for armchair travelers watching on the other end of the TV set...
