I don't know if you guys know this about me, but I am ALLLL about keeping fit in fun ways.  My number one way to do that?  Walking.  Dave and I will choose a destination in the city, one we have never been to before, and we will EXPLORE.  Just that word conjures up such a sense of adventure for me that I am getting excited about what I am about to tell you!

GPSmyCity.com  asked me if I would collaborate with them on a fun giveaway, and after doing a bit of research, and checking out their iPhone app myself, I was hooked!! 

GPSmyCity is all about self-guided walking tours of over 470 cities worldwide.  Sometimes you don't need a tour guide when you visit a new city, you just need to know where to go to create your own experience.   The best part is that once you have the app, it works offline so that you aren't charged any ridiculous roaming fees while in other countries.

Check out these awesome screenshots:




Doesn't it look fun?  And EASY!! I love the way this app looks and reads.  They even have audio!

What could you win, you ask?  You could win your choice of THREE GPSmycity.com iPhone applications!  All you have to do is copy and paste the quiz below into an email message, answer the quiz questions, and send to quiz@gpsmycity.com.  They will take care of the rest! 

Pretty cool huh?  An amazing way to discover brand new cities throughout the world...or fall in love again with your own.




Come on!!! Do a little research...what else are you doing right now?? (Hint...Google is GREAT at answering questions)
