Begüm gave me a GoPro camera as a gift for submitting my dissertation (because I live such an #extreme life). We put it to good use and made a timelapse of our travels from Florida to New England! I think it came out pretty cool, check it out:
There is no audio—I recommend choosing your own song. On a related note, we had our playlist on shuffle and “New York State of Mind” by Billy Joel came on right when we reached the Verrazano bridge. It was a pretty powerful homecoming moment for this Long Island kid. And then it started raining pizza and bagels (ok, I made that part up.)
Many many thanks to our friends Scott, Dorian, Kevin, and Rich and Amber who hosted us along our journey. During graduate school we always daydreamed about taking a roadtrip after we finished up, and you really made it possible for us.
Begüm is the family photographer, so I don’t have many images to share. But, here are a few scenes from the road.
We hope to fill out that map with more trips in the near future! Next up: Cannataros head West (Geneseo, Niagara Falls, maybe some Canada adventures).
p.s. Dear Upstate NY friends: We are willing to trade delicious homebrew in exchange for lodging.
