Roadtrippin’ with my favorite ally

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.)

Our route:

Gainesville, FL –> New Orleans, LA –> Atlanta, GA –> Savannah, GA –> Raleigh, NC –> Philadelphia, PA –> Long Island, NY –> New Haven, CT –> Boston, MA

 

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.
