The time has come
for a family trip to Rome
. The little ladies are studying more world history in
school, and to go to what was the epicenter of the Roman Empire would be
educational. The fact that I need a Rome fix has absolutely nothing to do with

Since I’ve been to Rome a few times – by myself, with friends and with Mr.
Man – I know all about the solo, romantic and girlfriend getaway versions of a
Roman holiday
, but I need to plan a family-friendly itinerary. There are
countless travel blogs that I could go to and spend hours pouring over posts, piecing
together the perfect trip, go to a travel agent or I could just tap into my
social network. That’s where Gogobot comes in.

The Gogobot website connects you with your social network to make travel planning easier. No
matter where you want to go, you probably have at least one friend who has been
there, done that, so why not plan your trip based on the information your
friends have already provided via pictures, reviews, Facebook and Foursquare
check-in using Gogobot who has collected all this information in one place.
I found plenty of
friends on Gogobot who had been to Rome, as I suspected I would, and as I trolled through
their pictures and reviews, I started my wish list of things and do, restaurants and great places to shop.  It might be a family trip, but as the saying goes, if mama ain’t
After I finished adding to my wish list, I went to the hotel page, where
you can read reviews, comparison shop and even make your reservation. I’m still
in the wishing and planning stage, so I didn’t book a hotel, but I did add the
palatial Rome
Cavalieri, The Waldorf-Astoria Collection
to my wish list. That is what
they mean by reaching for the stars, right?
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!
