This was our third week hosting “Wander Weekends” (#wwkds) on Twitter. As always, we loved reading what our followers did this past weekend. We’ll be hosting it again next Monday for the entire day. We look forward to more people joining #WanderWeekends!

Here are a few #wwkds tweets from this week:

@Joefry#wwkds @gtrot @dyemondgrl @TMZ Eminem made $3.3 million for two nights of rapping. What did you do with your weekend?

@amymarden: @gtrot We went to Day out with Thomas in Union, IL #wwkds

@ChrisRill: @gtrot I had an amazing dinner at Noma in Copenhagen, the number 1 restaurant in the world according to S.Pellegrino. #wwkds

#wwkds Roundup: Week Two 08/15

Monday, August 15th, 2011

This was our second week hosting “Wander Weekends” (#wwkds) on Twitter. We had a few people share what they did last weekend and we really enjoyed reading their responses. We’d love for more people to participate. Instead of having a designated time slot, we have decided to make #wwkds an all day event! Tweeters from around the world will be able to use the hashtag all day. We want everyone to share what they did in their respective cities.

Here are a few #wwkds tweets from today:

@yarby: @gtrot travelled over to Asheville, NC. Beautiful weekends in the mountains! #wwkds

@br_ttany: I went to Griffith Park for the first time, had great German Beer at Wirsthaus and saw Happy Potter!#wwkds

@zetgem: @gtrot Spent a day picnicking and walking around Governors Island (@Gov_Island) in the heart of NYC! #wwkds

@hunywok: @gtrot Was at the Iowa State Fair and ate nothing on a stick. Did have a milkshake tho..yummo!#wwkds

We hope you’ll join us next week! Happy travels!

gtrot is excited to announce a new Twitter initiative, “Wander Weekends”. Wander Weekends will be a weekly event hosted by gtrot every Monday. It will be a recap of what people did for the weekend: where they traveled, what they explored in their city, etc. The travel world is adding Monday to its weekly roster of events. The event is open to everyone and we’re extending an invite to you first. For the first few weeks, there will not be any questions, we simply want you to use the hashtag #wwkds when tweeting about what you did the previous weekend. #wwkds will take place from 2 p.m. EST to 4 p.m. EST. We want you to share your weekends with us and the travel community! If you’d like to be one of the hosts of #wwkds in the future, please email our Community Manager Kamaria at kamaria[at] Now, tell us what you did this past weekend if you can remember! Happy travels!
