Traveling with TripIt.com

On our trip to San Fran for BlogHer we tried out TripIt.com's free itinerary service to keep track of our flights and hotel. Here's what we learned:
•It was very handy to have the flights and hotel arrangements on one easy to print form. TripIt keeps track of all the confirmation numbers, so no need to search for them at every turn.
•One of the features we love is that it automatically tells you the weather in your destination city. Perhaps if we had taken it more seriously or better understood what 65 degrees feels like in the middle of July, we wouldn't have frozen our butts off in San Fran over the weekend. (The Italian woman who took our photo was surprised that we weren't cold given how lightly we were dressed. We assured her we were freezing!)
•It helps if everyone participate (Ahem, Hope!) and it helps to remember that you've actually done it. We did call each other to ask info about our flights and the hotel, only to remember it was easily accessible to all online.

Freezing in San Fran was no fun, but seeing you both was. We must get together again soon. For sure during fashion week. We'll all be sure to dress well then. ; )

TripIt itineraries are easy to customize with other travel plans, as well as weather, activities, events, reservations. Travelers can also easily share and collaborate on TripIt itineraries with their family, friends and fellow travelers. Really i like this itinerary idea.
