It's Travel Tuesday and #citytripping time, and here's a look at my next adventure! Sports (okay, my husband's sports) are once again whisking me away to a new destination, and I'm super excited to wander around Vienna for nearly an entire week!

Several of us bloggers have been able to giveaway free codes for the GPSmyCity app, and you can count me in! I've got my Vienna map downloaded and ready to go for this trip. Find out below how you can get your free code - it's a $5 value! I've already been the benefactor of 3 free codes, and am looking forward to always knowing where I am on my next few trips!

All you have to do to redeem your free GPSmyCity app code is subscribe to my monthly update. If you want to be extra fancy, you can buy a copy of my Paris ebook, Four Years in Paris, and you'll get TWO free codes! I will use the email you provide to contact you later this week.

As mentioned in my previous volleyball post, the free Athlete Blab conference is happening today and tomorrow (March 15-16) in the afternoons, European time. You can join for any of the ten topics, and all of us bloggers can benefit from the branding and marketing session on Wednesday, March 16th, at 6:00 p.m. CET. I will be sharing my perspective and ideas on how to manage the off-season on Wednesday also, from 1:00-2:00 p.m. CET.

Please forward the relevant #athleteblab information to anyone you think may be interested. The hosts, Susan Salzbrenner (@fitaxcultures) and Ryan Owens (@beyondathletic) have worked really hard to get this conference off the ground, and it would be great for you to be a part of it!
