- — Liz Williams (@wizzerfly)Wed, Aug 01 2012 13:44:58A3 I love sharing travel adventures via SM. Foursquare is great fun when travelling; starts convos w/friends at home. #builtheritage
Q4: What types of resources do you read to prepare for a trip?
- — Kaitlin Wainwright (@hellokaitlin)Wed, Aug 01 2012 13:49:38#builtheritage A4: The Internet is full of info-blogs, Twitter, etc.-but being in situ & with people whose heritage it is, is irreplaceable.
- — Molly Goldsmith (@callmebutton)Wed, Aug 01 2012 13:55:32A4: In keeping with SLM for a trip, check out foursquare for where you're going. Lots of times, there's great lists to follow #builtheritage
- — Nancy Oakley (@NancOakley)Wed, Aug 01 2012 13:58:56A4: Depends on where I'm going: if completely foreign, I'll do more background research & wing it with more familiar places #builtheritage
