    So I use foursquare a lot to check in places, and I know many here on this board use it, especially when there are points to be had by checking in. Just thought we could have some fun, and list some of our more interesting badges. Here are some of mine, and sorry if there has been a thread like this before!

    Of course, I'm going to lead with:
    Jetsetter lvl 4: 15 or more airports
    Air Cell: Mile High: Checking in while flying, using Gogo

    Warhol lvl 2: 5 or more art galleries
    Bookworm lvl 3: 10 or more bookstores
    Swimmies lvl 2: 5 or more water spots
    Mall Rat lvl 4: 15 or more malls(!)
    Gym Rat: 10 or more times to the gym in 30 days

    That last one is key, because here come the important ones:

    Hot Tamale lvl 3: 10 or more Mexican restaurants
    Pizzaiolo lvl 4: 15 or more pizza spots
    Baker's Dozen lvl 4: 15 or more bakeries
    Flame Broiled lvl 4: 15 or more burger joints
    Fresh Brew lvl 5: 20 or more coffee shops
    Foodie: Check in at 5 or more Zagat rated restaurants

    What are some of yours?

    I just joined foursquare a few days ago and don't have any friends left. If anyone would like to add me my foursquare username is the same as my username here :)

    My husband, Mr. Silver Springer is my only foursquare friend, as I don't want to subject this check-in craziness with perfect strangers. It works best if your friend is local. Cheers!

    Yes, I am surprised you know about this. This may be my favorite travel picture.

    I have a similar picture taken when I was there in 2002! I loved the sanctuary...

    The tiger monk even let me and hubby take the tiger for a walk! It was the best experience ever in my life! :)

    What a great topic OP. I didn't realize I was such a historian!

    Alright i'll just show my Top 5 multiple check-ins to simplify things:

    Trainspotter & JetSetter (10x)
    Pizzaiolo (7x)
    Bento, Fresh Brew, Historian (all 6x)
    Flame Broiled & Baker's Dozen (5x)
    Hot Tamale, Swimmies, Great Outdoors, Mall Rat (all 3x)

    Once again this is a great topic, I can come back here in a year and see how much has changed with me and the rest of the MPers.

    For all of you, it already has been a year. Come re-post your badges and see where you're at!

    I haven't used Foursquare in a while (slap my wrist), but I'm pretty sure I have about tapped out the coffee badge because of hitting over 100 different coffee shops...they call me Juan Valdez.
