On the Road Again…

I’m off to Germany today from Austin for Eclipse Summit Europe 2009.

The first order of business is to eat the ceremonial last breakfast taco I’ll have for a week.

I started using TripIt.com recently to manage my travels. I highly recommend it to anyone who travels quite a bit and needs to share itineraries with family or colleagues. It also allows you to see if you have any friends that will be in the area at the same time you are (hi Boris!).

On top of that, it even turns traveling into a game!

I’m a bit disappointed that I’m in second place… I think I can fix that with a planned vacation to Fiji.

Finally, TripIt has an iPhone application so you can check your trips on your phone.

So give TripIt a try if you travel quite a bit.

Ok, time to go. I hope to see everyone in Ludwigsburg.

  • Hi Chris,

    I’m using Dopplr to track my trips. Wondering if I should switch to TripIt. Did you try Dopplr before and give a recommendation?

    OBTW, I won’t be at ESE this time – but I’m sure the rest of the modeling gang will easily take over my part of selling you on the productivity of modeling πŸ™‚

  • I used Dopplr when it first came out in beta form. I haven’t given it another chance since I moved to TripIt. I found TripIt was very powerful when it came to working with itineraries, where Dopplr was focused on building up social aspects of its sites like reviews. I’d give TripIt a try for a trip to see how you like it to manage things. Let me know if you think it’s better than Dopplr.

    There’s a TripIt pro option that costs money, but I haven’t found a reason to use it although it looks nice.

  • Strang, I also use TripIt and you are in my network but I doesn’t show you as close. But Boris, Bernd and Shawn are. πŸ™‚
